Networkable API

A networkable API refers to a system of functions that can be remotely accessed. Networkable APIs refer to APIs that operate on a network. This is opposed to traditional APIs, which operate on a local system. Networkable APIs are common in Internet of Things scenarios and may send data over HTTP or other protocols.
