FRANKFURT, Germany, February 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
In January 2013, Fraport AG served nearly 3.9 million passengers at its Frankfurt Airport (FRA) home base - down 4.9 percent year-on-year. This decline was due primarily to the reduction in flight offers implemented by many airlines for the Winter 2012/13 Timetable. Furthermore, weather-related flight cancellations - above all, freezing rain and sleet in mid-January - affected the passenger volume. Excluding this weather effect, the monthly result would have been at least two percentage points better.
Handling about 150,000 metric tons in January 2013, FRA recorded continuing light growth in cargo (airfreight + airmail) - up 1.3 percent year-on-year. Aircraft movements dropped by 6.8 percent to nearly 35,100 takeoffs and landings in January 2013.
Fraport's majority-owned airports - Frankfurt Airport (FRA), Antalya (AYT), Burgas (BOJ), Varna (VAR) and Lima (LIM) - together welcomed about 5.7 million passengers in January 2013, down 1.5 percent year-on-year. Peru's LIM continued to record dynamic growth, with almost 1.2 million passengers received in the reporting month. Well over half a million passengers used AYT on the Turkish Riviera, while the Bulgarian airports of BOJ and VAR on the Black Sea coast together served about 28,500 passengers.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of (at least) three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the back-end service, and the mobile application for the end user’s controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target –...
