IBM open-sources ‘Internet of Things’ protocol | KurzweilAI
IBM announced it is joining with Italy-based hardware architecture  firm  Eurotech in donating a complete draft protocol for asynchronous   inter-device communication to the Eclipse Foundation, ReadWriteWeb reports.
A  projected 24 billion simultaneous devices — sending billions of  messages per hour —  including  RFID tags on shipping crates, heart rate  monitors, GPS devices,  smartphone firmware, automobile maintenance  systems, and even earrings may become more socially active than any teenager presently  alive by the year 2020.
The new asynchronous  inter-device communication protocol is called Message Queuing Telemetry Transport (MQTT), the machine-to-machine counterpart of HTTP (used on websites).
