Abstract: The 'internet of things' (IoT) concept nowadays is one of the hottest trends for research in any given field; since IoT is about interactions between multiple devices, things, and objects. This interaction opens different directions of enhancement and development in many fields, such as architecture, dependencies, communications, protocols, security, business applications and big data. The critical goal of internet of things (IoT) is to ensure effective communication between objects and build a sustained bond among them using different types of applications. The application layer is responsible for providing services and determines a set of protocols for message passing at the application level. This research addresses a set of application layer protocols that are being used today for IoT, to affirm a reliable tie among objects and things. In addition to, the discussion of the IoT impact when it is embedded into business applications and how the enterprises can benefit from using it.

Keywords: IoT application layer protocol; XMPP; MQTT; CoAP; RESTFUL; DSS; AMQP; WebSocket; business IoT embedded systems.
