Title: METHOD FOR ENABLING A COMMUNICATION DEVICE TO RECEIVE A PARTIAL MODIFICATION OF A RESOURCE
Abstract:
Embodiments herein relate to a method performed by a first communication device (10) for handling data in a communication network (1). The first communication device transmits, to a second communication device (12), a first indication indicating a configuration enabling the first communication device (10) to receive a partial modification of resources. The first communication device (10) receives, from the second communication device (12), a second indication indicating a partial update, in time, associated with a resource and a value of a part of the resource. The first communication device further maintains an internal value of the part of the resource based on the second indication. For example, it is herein disclosed a method to interact with resources in a more granular way in Internet of Things. Resources in Internet of Things are treated in an atomic way, as minimal units of information and the method is for partially update resources in Internet of Things. The new degree of granularity may make more efficient use of the network bandwidth and the limited resources of the constrained networks. Furthermore, the method may include performing an Observation of two instances of the same information in time; and using ETags to classify the different instances over time.
