NOT ON THE CURRENT EDITION
This blip is not on the current edition of the radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the radarUnderstand more

CoAP is an open standards communication protocol for the Internet of Things (IoT). While there is currently a proliferation of competing standards in the IoT space, we particularly like CoAP. It is specifically designed for resource-constrained devices and local radio networks. It uses UDP for transport, but is semantically compatible with HTTP. CoAP uses a web-based model of devices with their own URLs and a request-response paradigm that supports RESTful and decentralized approaches.
