If you are planning an IoT network, you have a couple of decisions to make. Both technical and business in nature. One of them is choosing the roles that your devices will be playing in the scheme. Should an IoT device act as a client or a server? And what if you could create an IoT server accessible through the internet on a microcontroller? A decentralized IoT?
Let’s save the best for last. For now, let’s focus on the roles themselves. Let’s face it – currently, almost all IoT devices on the market are clients, not servers. The server is singular, and it’s an IoT platform to which all clients are connecting to.
