Tigase IoT One Cloud uses XMPP for transmission of data between client and the IoT hub. XMPP stands for eXtensible Messaging and Presence Protocol, an evolution of the Jabber platform. It is an Open source standard recognized by the IETF under publications RFC 3920 and 3921. XMPP is an excellent real-time communication platform with a proven track record in a wide variety of industries. As a natural extension of the way XMPP works, communication to your IoT devices connected with this system are improved thanks to a level of abstraction. Unlike most IoT solutions where a client connects to a host program on a device directly, IoT One Cloud uses a modified XMPP server to stand in between and deliver only properly formatted commands and packets to and from the devices, ensuring security from rogue program injections.
