Stefano, I think this is an interesting question. MQTT-SN, like MQTT is publish-subscribe, which means messages are sent to topics rather than a particular receiver. In MQTT, you have to connect to a server, so to some extent that server becomes part of the destination of the message along with the topic. The same thing happens in MQTT-SN when you connect to a server. But when you use QoS -1 in MQTT-SN, without a connection to a server, then what does that mean? For a UDP implementation, you can send messages to a particular multicast group, so you could say that that group becomes part of the destination. Receivers of those messages can forward them on, so that the message can reach a destination to which the originator was not visible. So, I think that MQTT-SN applications could take advantage of the underlying transport's mesh networking capabilities. An application could interpret a topic as containing a destination for instance, and use the transport's capabilities to get it there.
...asking for MQTT-SN descriptions / slides: apart from you eclipsecon 2015 ones of course! Very good material, anything else around?
