Web services provide access to software systems over the Internet using standard protocols.
We're using open protocols, based on real standards as opposed to proprietary systems.
Two active devices can communicate in this way as well, using more complex protocols.
It must also support the routing protocols being used in the core.
Usually the camera manufacturer does not publish the protocol used in this mode.
Some satellites also provide data-forwarding services using the X.25 or similar protocols.
