One capability that would be useful is highPriorityProcessing. It would identify special processing needs for a device type.
Its core attribute could be “true” or “false”. Another attribute may be the priority targeted on a given scale (1-5, 5 being the highest priority).
This capability would give higher priority processing for device types that deal with a lot of concurrent events or emergency situation (such as smoke detectors and other security related devices).
By tagging a device type with this capability, ST would then be able to better assign resources to it in its cloud-based architecture or even for local processing.
P.S. Of course, there would be strict processing rules to comply to in order to avoid any device type claiming that capability.
