Definition

Communication protocols: A set of rules that enables the effective communication (i.e., data exchange) of different machines/devices in a network setting. The concept is similar to the languages we use to communicate. If two people do not speak the same language, the exchange between them is not going to be effective.

IoT Communication Protocols Definition

This report includes statistics on the adoption of communication protocols between devices and middleware as well as middleware and applications.
