Deferred Retrieval of IoT Information Using QLM Messaging Interface

Conference paper
Part of the Communications in Computer and Information Science book series (CCIS, volume 183)


Internet of Things (IoT) is intended to provide a network where information flows could easily be retrieved and set up between any kinds of products, devices, users, etc. Quantum Lifecycle Management messaging interface (QLM-MI) has been designed accordingly, providing generic and standardized application-level interfaces. One cornerstone property of QLM-MI provides the opportunity to subscribe IoT information from any “Thing” so as to retrieve it in a deferred way. Subscriptions can be performed to receive a “continuous” data flow or can be based on “client-initiated” communications. All these features are described in this paper, and then a technical proof-of-concept is provided based on a scenario in the framework of smart home.
