MQTT is a machine-to-machine (M2M)/”Internet of Things” connectivity protocol. It was designed as an extremely lightweight publish/subscribe messaging transport. It is useful for connections with remote locations where a small code footprint is required and/or network bandwidth is at a premium. For example, it has been used in sensors communicating to a broker via satellite link, over occasional dial-up connections with healthcare providers, and in a range of home automation and small device scenarios. It is also ideal for mobile applications because of its small size, low power usage, minimized data packets, and efficient distribution of information to one or many receivers.
MQTT represents an efficient solution to extend any IoT networks to the cloud, raison why Ineo-Sense selects it for his owns needs to deploy private Networks infrastructures.
To go further about MQTT, we strongly recommend to have a look on HiveMQ website on which several well-done tutorials are available.
