Peter Waher Application 2013

Jump to navigation Jump to search


My name is Peter Waher, and I'm a cofounder of Clayster. Clayster provides a platform for Internet-of-Things-based services hosted on everything from plug computers to the cloud, and incorporates apart from Internet-of-Things functionality also Semantic Web technology. My interest in XMPP stems from the fact that we're using it for IoT/M2M communications and peer-to-peer(-like) communications in IP-TV applications.

Some links contining information about what we do:


XMPP Activity

I've spent the last year rallying support for the use of XMPP within IoT and writing XEPs that lay the foundation for interoperable IoT applications using XMPP.

List of XEPs that I've been part in creating:

There are also two awaiting approval:

And these are work in progress. They are largely complete, but require some more work:

The following presentation provides information about both the XEPs above, and future planned XEPs relating to the Internet of Things:

Purpose for re-applying

The main purpose for reapplying for membership is to be able to propose XMPP extensions. Our main interest is to expand XMPP to be used mainly within the following three areas:

  • Internet of Things.
  • Semantic Web (web 3.0).
  • Decentralized Social Networking.

Apart from the XEPs waiting approval and not yet terminated as listed above, the plan is to provide XEPs for:

  • IoT Battery Powered Sensors
  • IoT Discovery
  • IoT Events (push, subscriptions, etc.)
  • IoT Multicast
  • IoT publish/subscribe

Nagging in my mind as being a good idea is also:

  • Distributed Data storage
  • Distributed File System
