When 2 companies would like to cooperate and create something new they need to integrate towards each other. Doing this today means creating authentication methods and getting common ID structures through their RESt APi’s
When we do this over XMPP you just federate the other domain with a server to server (S2S) xmpp connection. XMPP already have the id structures defined ech company has to adapt their internal structures which gives you a much more loosly coupled situation.
The XMPP IoT server 2 server solution brings the possibility of one thing talking to another thing in a peer to peer fasion or to use the gateway aproach and hide alot of things behind a concentrator. whatever technology you have you can choose any or both.
The IoT XMPP extensions used are
- XEP 323 Sensor data, read out information
- XEP 325 Control , Send control information
- XEP 326 Concentrator, hiding complex structures and technlogies
