Interconnection and management of distributed digital devices can be expensive, time consuming, involved, and difficult. The proposed solution is a well-designed IoT platform that can significantly reduce the cost, time, effort, and complexity associated with such tasks. This paper presents the development and implementation of a reconfigurable, customizable, cost-effective, modular, and lightweight IoT platform. Using HTTP requests or SMS messages, devices can easily send data to this IoT platform with minimal configuration. The IoT platform features user management, node registration and setup, data visualization, and data extraction via web UI. The platform can also be deployed on local networks. The IoT platform has also been load tested with simultaneous HTTP requests from 75 virtual machines with results giving less than 1% data loss.
