Publish-subscribe based messaging protocol / From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

MQTT (originally an initialism of MQ Telemetry Transport[lower-alpha 1]) is a lightweight, publish-subscribe, machine to machine network protocol for Message queue/Message queuing service. It is designed for connections with remote locations that have devices with resource constraints or limited network bandwidth. It must run over a transport protocol that provides ordered, lossless, bi-directional connections—typically, TCP/IP.[1] It is an open OASIS standard and an ISO recommendation (ISO/IEC 20922).
