All devices managed by the iotJumpWay are added to Locations. You can think of a Location as an IoT hosting account for a single physical location. For example, you may want to build an home/office IoT network, to do this you would purchase a Location which would provide you with x amount of device to cloud / cloud to device messages per month and x amount of storage for your data. Location packages for both IntelliLan customers and JumpWay developers include a free tier and paid/custom packages which include higher levels to match your specific requirements.
Within each iotJumpWay Location you can assign multiple Zones that represent specific areas of your Location. For example, if your Location is your home, you could add kitchen, lounge and bathroom as Zones. Inside each zone you can install and connect multiple devices via the iotJumpWay which will allow you easily manage and monitor your devices via the various iotJumpWay control panels and applications.
iotJumpWay / IntelliLan Devices
Developers and Makers can create multiple devices and attach them to Zones within their Location Spaces. Once your device instances have been created in the Developer Dashboard you will be provided with access keys for the iotJumpWay MQTT broker and Rest API endpoints (CoAP and AMQP are currently in development). One you have your keys you simply download your chosen library from the iotJumpWay Developer Libraries, plugin your keys and away you go.
MQTT / REST / WebSockets
MQTT is a machine-to-machine (M2M)/"Internet of Things" connectivity protocol. It was designed as an extremely lightweight publish/subscribe messaging transport.
REST is popular for allowing several types of applications access data from an online database using a HTTP request.
CoAP - Constrained Application Protocol
The Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP) is a specialized web transfer protocol for use with constrained nodes and constrained networks in the Internet of Things. The protocol is designed for machine-to-machine (M2M) applications such as smart energy and building automation.
AMQP - Advanced Message Queuing Protocol
The Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP) is an open standard for passing business messages between applications or organizations. It connects systems, feeds business processes with the information they need and reliably transmits onward the instructions that achieve their goals. The capable, commoditized, multi-vendor communications ecosystem which AMQP enables creates opportunities for commerce and innovation which can transform the way business is done on the Internet, and in the Cloud.
