Application of CoAP in distributed systems


Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP) is new software protocol that is intended to be used in very simple electronics devices that allows them to communicate interactively over the Internet. To integrate with these types of devices we also need CoAP support on the server side. In addition, because CoAP is a RESTful application protocal that uses a UDP transport layer, it may also provide a very efficient and scalable protocol for specific server to server communication.

This assignment must cover a (basic) implementation of a CoAP capable server component and should include an extensive evaluation of the protocol's characteristics and potential application within distributed cloud based systems.

We offer a handsome remuneration and all the tools you need to do your job properly.
