In the previous chapter, we learned the benefits of creating applications using the Internet of Things (IoT) platform. In this chapter, we will show you how such a platform can be used to bridge different protocols so that devices and applications in different networks that use different protocols can communicate with each other. There may be many reasons why you would need to bridge between protocols in IoT. A few of them are listed here:

  • To include services and devices to talk to other services and devices using other protocols if you're interconnecting systems
  • To extend the reach of systems and networks to include areas where different protocols are required
  • If you're building services using third-party devices ...
