• The MQTT (Message Queuing Telemetry Transport) protocol is an open OASIS and ISO standard (ISO/IEC 20922) and enables the exchange of arbitrary data between two machines without a direct communication link between them. It applies the pattern of publish-subscribe, where the MQTT client can send (publish) or receive (subscribe) data and the MQTT broker serves as a data dispatcher between the MQTT clients. The published/subscribed data is addressed by topics which are managed by the MQTT broker.

    The protocol defines no encoding scheme for the payload data. Through the use of a publish/subscribe mechanism, the published message can be consumed by many clients.
