Eclipse IoT Launches Machine to Machine Communication Platform -- ADTmag

release supports out-of-the-box integration and protocol
interoperability with both HTTP-enabled devices and devices utilizing
the CoAP app-layer protocol. Its extensible framework supports easy
integration with devices using such protocols as Zigbee, Zwave, 6LoWPAN
and Modbus, among others, the Foundation said.

OM2M is an open-source implementation of the ETSI SmartM2M
standard. But the project leader, Laboratory for Analysis and
Architecture of Systems, a research arm of the French National Center

for Scientific Research (LAAS-CNRS), said it plans to migrate to the global oneM2M standard

two key IoT projects: Paho 1.1, which provides scalable open-source client implementations of open and standard messaging protocols for IoT/M2M apps, and Mosquitto 1.4, which provides an open-source implementation of the OASIS Message Queuing Telemetry Transport (MQTT) protocol.

Originally posted on: my previous post we talked about how to create app in Wearable and Handheld devices and created a simple implementation of sending/syncing data. In this post I'm going to demonstrate how to deploy and test apps in real device. First of all I am using Nexus 9 and LG G Watch as my test devices. Before we start make sure that USB Driver for Android is installed in your machine. You can verify it by right clicking on the COMPUTER > MANAGE > DEVICE MANAGER > OTHER DEVICES. If the driver

You can enable it under SETTINGS > DEVELOPER OPTIONS > USB DEBUGGING. Once you have the required driver installed and enabled debugging for your device then just plug-in your Handheld device to your PC or laptop. In Visual Studio you should be able to see the connected handheld device as shown in the image below: Deploying the App to...(Read whole news on source site)
