Qeo is a universal language for simple, secure communication between devices and applications. It is designed to be open and future-proof. To make those ambitions achievable the framework introduces a number of principles that make it a robust IoT (Internet of Things) standardization. First and foremost Qeo provides a modern, data-centric pub/sub API that is not only easy to learn but is easy to master thanks to its built-in mechanisms to always find the most efficient path between devices, regardless of which physical network they are connected to. This data-centric API makes discovery, security, connectivity, and filtering a cinch. It turns the home network (and its associated remote devices such as the connected car, remote smartphones/tablets and cloud services) into a rich database of structured information. Any application can tap into that database and use it in ways that the data providers wouldn’t even be able to predict. In a nutshell, Qeo enables true intelligent interconnections between devices.
