Message Queuing Telemetry Transport (MQTT) is a lightweight, publish-subscribe network protocol that transports messages between devices. The protocol usually runs over TCP/IP, however, any network protocol that provides ordered, lossless, bi-directional connections can support MQTT.
Originally published in 1999, the standard is now at version 5.
Prolojik utilises MQTT within its Indigo GN100 gateway, in our PN541 area controllers and as an extension module to our Perspective supervisor for legacy system integration.
Application Programming Interface is a software interface which allows computer systems to interconnected and share data.
