What we do ?
We review some IoT platforms in order to find their features and specifications and we want to summerize our reseach here. If you are a developer you can review this research in order to see IoT Platform requirements.
What platform we see ?
Agriculture, Automotive, Consumer Electronics Healthcare, Industrial Automation, Logistics Smart City, Smart Energy, Smart Retail Sport and Fitness, Wearables, Telecom
Kaa offers a designated feature that enables messaging between devices. Each message has a user-defined structure. Messaging is enabled between devices belonging to the same “user”. BUT All messages are routed through the Kaa server.
Some metadata is stored in an SQL database, but all of the endpoint-related data is stored in a NoSQL database. Kaa currently supports two options for NoSQL data storage: Cassandra and MongoDB. Kaa provides an abstraction layer for data storage, which means that you can develop and use plugins for other NoSQL databases.
Technology & Language
Kaa Protocol (KP) over MQTT, CoAP and TCP
Thing-Platform Interaction Types
You can push data to your device by using either the Kaa configuration update or Kaa notifications. You can also group your devices by their profiles and then push updates to device groups instead of updating each device separately. You can push new configuration and/or notifications via either REST API or Web UI.
SDK 4 Things
Kaa currently provides SDKs for C, C++, and Java.
The data collection subsystem in Kaa is designed to collect records (logs) of pre-configured structure, store them in the client, transfer from the client to Operations service, persist on server for further processing, or submit to the immediate stream analysis.
The Kaa Events subsystem is designed to generate endpoint events in real time, send them to other endpoints of the same owner and to Kaa server for processing
