What are the prerequisites to make Agora work with IoT platforms, business applications and collaborative applications?
It is necessary that these platforms, applications, etc. be reachable, that is to say that they have a documented API (Application Programming Interface).
To each API corresponds a connector in the Agora solution, called vThing. The available vThings are published in a store directly accessible from the administration interface. This store is frequently completed by Agora (possibly on request), and if they wish by its customers themselves.
In the case where the APIs are accessible from outside the company, the vThings are directly instantiated in the Agora cloud platform. Otherwise, an edge mode allows the deployment of vThings in the environment of the company (for example in a DMZ).
