Abstract [en]

The growing number and integration of sensors and smart objects to the Internet is pushing the development of the Internet of Things (IoT) and with it the need for standardized applications protocols for the Web that is also suited to the constrained devices joining it. The IETF Constrained RESTful Environment (CoRE) working group has been working on the Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP) an application protocol that is aimed at machine-to-machine (M2M) communication. The main objective of this thesis is to evaluate this protocol solution for constrained nodes, observing its key features and functionalities and the way that those can improve the performance of nodes in IoT environments. The CoAP protocol will also be compared and analysed to other existing web protocols operating in similar conditions.
