As our work on building the Unified Platform for Innovations (UPI) progressed, we at Inato Ltd followed the development of the IoT field and, of course, in particular the creation of IoT platforms. In the analyzes of IoT Analytics we found that this type of platform mainly solves the problem of maintaining different types of protocols based on Internet data exchange. In most cases, protocol transformations are used as a form of achieving interoperability. Most of the platforms presented in the analyzes did not offer means to achieve intelligent processing of the exchanged data, if some realizations of specialized analyzes are excluded.
With the concept of fog-computing proposed by CISCO, which later grew into inclusion in IoT configurations and participants with edge-computing, we received another confirmation of the correctness of our IoT vision. Simply the participants in Smart home/IoT-configuration are presented in our UPI-environment with SNBA through the respective models without requiring changes in the system architecture.
