MQTT

Getting Started

MQTT

MQTT is the standard messaging and data exchange protocol for the Internet of Things. The technology provides a scalable and cost efficient way to connect your devices over the Internet. It is capable of delivering data over the Internet in near real-time and guarantees the delivery. Connecting millions of IoT devices to your business infrastructure, sending instant updates and moving data efficiently is where MQTT truly excels. It’s designed for IoT devices - lightweight on the wire, enabling low-cost device communication that scales with your business.


MQTT is an open protocol, standardized by OASIS and ISO (ISO/IEC 20922:2016). It is widely adopted by all major companies worldwide for data exchange with constrained devices and server application. MQTT keeps bandwidth at an absolute minimum and deals with unreliable networks, requiring little implementation effort for developers.

HiveMQ is the enterprise solution for MQTT. It is a MQTT based messaging platform designed for the fast, efficient and reliable movement of data to and from connected IoT devices. HiveMQ is an 100% MQTT compliant ultra-scalable MQTT Broker for reliable data delivery, efficient network utilization and enterprise-grade security that can be deployed everywhere, from cloud to on-premise installations. MQTT is finally ready for enterprise use cases thanks to HiveMQ’s elastic clustering capabilities, a marketplace powered by the flexible extension system, real-time data monitoring and enterprise data integrations.
