In recent years, Internet of Things (IoT) industry has developed rapidly thanks to the rise of the smart objects and devices with processing, sensing and actuating capabilities. In order to satisfy a broad range of applications, a variety of application layer protocols has been taken into consideration, since IoT still does not have widely accepted standard protocol. One of prime candidate solutions is HTTP, as a well-known,
fundamental client-server protocol and the protocol that is the most compatible with existing network infrastructure. Due to strict IoT specific requirements, however, a detailed characterization of the performance of HTTP for IoT applications is required. This paper presents a detailed analysis of throughput and latency for HTTP/1:1 with pipelining, by evaluating the impact that pipelining factor has on the latency. Based on these performance results, we analyze whether this HTTP/1:1 model should be implemented in IoT systems with significant latency constraints.
