Protect your customers’ privacy with direct connectivity

You’ve probably heard of several cases involving digital privacy issues such as customer data leaking, GDPR breaches, or general lack of cybersecurity. This only stresses the importance of considering the level of privacy in an IoT solution – not only to increase end-user confidence and willingness to invest in an IoT-enabled device, but also to […]

A developer-friendly IoT solution

A P2P-based IoT solution for your devices is, in general, simpler to develop and manage than the traditional server-based solution. Read along to get the answer of how a direct connection is established, and which communication patterns are supported to enable a high-performing, developer-friendly IoT solution. The design of a P2P-based IoT solution vs. a […]

Low latency in IoT – why is it important?

A slow website is bad news, right? Not only can it be incredibly irritating, it actually has a huge impact on the user experience. The same thing is applied in many Internet of Things (IoT) devices – a market that is rapidly growing week by week. This means that is now more important than ever […]

P2P IoT vs. Database-driven IoT – which one to choose?

Image of App access to iot devices

Database-driven IoT is when data from the IoT device travels to a centralized server that stores and process the data in a cloud database, as you can see in the illustration above. A use-case could be the current temperature from a thermostat. In this use-case, the thermostat measures the temperature via a sensor and sends […]

Secure P2P remote control of ESP32 WiFi FreeRTOS based Module with Nabto

The ESP32 is a powerful WiFi module from the creators of the successful ESP8266 low-cost WiFi module, Espressif. The creators has released the ESP-IDF (Iot Development Framework) which is a FreeRTOS based core for the module that you can plug your own code and modules into. The ESP32 module is a dual protocol hybrid with […]

CC3200 Two-Way Audio with Android

Texas Instrument’s CC3200 is a single-chip microcontroller unit with built-in Wi-Fi connectivity, created for the Internet of Things. It can run the FreeRTOS operating system and provides a hardware encryption engine. Sounds interesting? It did to us! So we created a demo that is capable of streaming two-way audio between the CC3200 and an Android […]
