So is this any good?
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, minimised data packets, and efficient distribution of information to one or many receivers (more...)
Good news everyone! MQTT v3.1.1 has now become an OASIS Standard.
This marks not just the result of 18 months hard work by the Technical Committee, but also the last 15 years of work started by Andy and Arlen. Congratulations to everyone involved.
You can find the standard specification as either single page HTML or PDF.
Interoperability testing at EclipseCon 2014
January 22nd, 2014 - No Comments
EclipseCon 2014, coming up in March, has a strong focus on the Internet of Things.
As part of EclipseCon, the Eclipse Foundation is delighted to host an interoperability testing day for MQTT developers and vendors. The goal is to have representation from a wide range of MQTT brokers, clients, and MQTT-enabled devices. If you work with MQTT, take a look at the Eventbrite page to sign up for the interoperability testing, and check the Eclipse Paho wiki page for more infomation. If you are building APIs or devices on top of MQTT, this is a great way of interacting with the community, broadening awareness of your project or product, and making sure that things work smoothly for you users and customers!
Feel free to contact the Eclipse Paho team via their mailing list, if you have any questions.
