Application Programming Interfaces (API) are increasingly relied upon across a wide area of communications, applications, commerce, and digital content. The prudent use of APIs provides operational flexibility, scalability, and enhanced opportunities for new application and service deployment. In the Internet of Things (IoT), APIs will become table stakes for interoperability between platforms, devices, and gateways. Moreover, IoT APIs will become a critical part of major IoT application and service developer programs.
We see an especially important role for IoT APIs in the support of signaling, communications, and information exchange between certain key authoritative databases including Identity Database (IDDB), Permissions Database, and Device Discovery Database. Each of these databases will be accessed via IoT APIs in support of the IoT Mediation function necessary for the long-term scalability of IoT networks and systems.
Furthermore, IoT APIs will be at the foundation of data interchange in the emerging IoT Data as a Service (IoTDaaS) marketplace.
