While efforts have been made in order to identify a 'killer protocol' in the M2M arena, it seems that no one has hit the target yet.
For this reason, we felt that the best way to approach the problem was to define an extendible protocol - targeting at first the core functionalities commonly required by M2M applications - and lying on a very general architectural model: this is in fact the BiTXml protocol design approach.
Our main guidelines have been readability and easy extendibility of the protocol specifications, including the support for different I/O ports, network protocols, and core functionalities.
The result - in line with an evolutionary project - wants to be of help to anyone is facing a generic M2M project and needs a reference framework to express commands and control processes in an easy yet powerful manner.
