Introduction to MQTT
You’ve probably heard a lot about the MQTT (Message Queue Telemetry Transport) protocol, which is more than 20 years old. It is often used for communication between different devices.
The Internet of Things is an exciting area for the Internet of Things.
Here, we will cover MQTT and how it can use to create an Internet of Things (IoT) application.
The technology was initially developed as a way to send data to satellites.
The lightweight protocol allowed for low bandwidth and power consumption.
One of the major factors of the system working efficiently was its resource efficiency; it worked using the expensive satellite link.
Some say MQTT is coming into use with more accessible and low-cost communication channels and various application areas, including the Internet of Things (IoT).
Why MQTT Protocol Is Used in IoT
An IoT system is a network of connected devices that communicate with each other. The Message Queuing Telemetry Transport Protocol fits very well into this concept.
An attractive feature of the MQTT protocol architecture is its minimum overhead. It’s a lightweight protocol with a quick response time. When there are a lot of devices around, it will improve efficiency.
It ensures that data transfer is smooth and minimizes the system’s impact.
