A Grab Bag of Network Protocols Relating to IoT

In no particular order (yet), here's a bunch of network protocols that can be involved in IoT. They are at various levels in the stack.

Yes, these are all over the place; this list is a braindump for now. I'll organize this material and add notes later.

  • MQTT
  • ANT Protocol & ANT+
  • WiFi
  • Bluetooth 2.1
  • Bluetooth LE
  • 2G/3G/4G/LTE
  • LoRaWAN
  • LPWAN (class of protocols, really)
  • TCP/IP
  • UDP
  • ZigBee
  • CoAP (Constrained Application Protocol)
  • 6LoWPAN (IETF working group)
  • AMQP
  • XMPP
  • SSDP
  • UNB (ultra narrow band)
