<a name="description"/> Description
This Internet of Things Agent is a bridge that can be used to communicate devices using the Ultralight 2.0 protocol
and NGSI Context Brokers (like Orion). Ultralight 2.0 is a lightweight
text based protocol aimed to constrained devices and communications where the bandwidth and device memory may be limited
resources. This IoTA will provide different transport protocol bindings for the same protocol: HTTP, MQTT...
As is the case in any IoT Agent, this one follows the interaction model defined in the Node.js IoT Agent Library,
that is used for the implementation of the Northbound APIs. Information about the IoTAgent's architecture can be found
on that global repository. This documentation will only address those features and characteristics that are particular
to the Ultralight 2.0 IoTAgent.
Additional information about operating the component can be found in the Operations: logs and alarms document.
