Against to the campus custom requirements, this paper designs the platform of IoT of campus application. In the platform design, the technical architecture is divided into five aspects, sensing layer, access layer, storage layer, service layer and application layer. The functional architecture is divided into nine independent functional modules, standardized interfaces and separated between UI and Server which are developed by SSH framework. The platform focus on designing modular, universal, read-write separation and load balancing, improving high-impact access for IoT application. The test results show that the platform meets the expected design goals. Through the actual scene application, the platform achieves the expected effects.
