If you look at any network, 6LoWPAN here, for example, you’ll notice that communication inside a network amongst its “Things” is non -existent. (A “thing” is an object with embedded electronics that can transfer data over a network — without any human interaction.) Why is it that even though they are in the same communication medium, they still can’t intercommunicate and inter-operate? It’s because all of these ‘Things’ have different properties and there is no platform to resolve the differences.
