Internet of Things (IoT) is a constantly evolving concept. Nonetheless, we can consider that the Internet of Things broadly refers to the trend towards generalized interconnection of all the objects that surround our daily lives, places and physical environments. Among the success keys of Iot there are protocols. However, the lack of a single connectivity protocol causes a lack of interoperability between IoT devices and applications. In this article, we present a detailed comparative study of the Short-range network protocols. Then, we will present the operating models of these protocols. There models facilitates the in-depth understanding of how network protocols work. Subsequently, from our comparative study already established and these proposed models we determine the priority of the criteria of these protocols. Using the projection of these criteria on the proposed operating models. This will help to choose the adaptable protocol for a type of IoT applications.
