"Mozilla is working to create a framework of software and services that can bridge the communication gap between connected devices. ... anyone can now build their own Things Gateway to control their connected device directly from the web,” the company wrote in a blog post.
The gateway provides an implementation of a Web of Things gateway. “The ‘Web of Things’ (WoT) is the idea of taking the lessons learned from the World Wide Web and applying them to IoT. It’s about creating a decentralized Internet of Things by giving Things URLs on the web to make them linkable and discoverable, and defining a standard data model and APIs to make them interoperable,” the company wrote."
