At the present time there is an undergoing standardisation effort to standardise a protocol for eXtremely Resource Constrained Environments (XRCE). Beside staring the standardisation process we have submitted a proposal that is quite different from competings into two respects. First it supports peer-to-peer as well as brokered communication. Second it is a few times more efficient in time and space than competing submissions.
While technically zenoh implements our XRCE proposal, considered that the standard has not been adopted yet we prefer to refer to the protocol using its code name – zenoh.
