    What is MQTT? MQ Telemetry Transport Protocol is a lightweight

    broker-based publish/subscribe messaging protocol designed to be open, simple, lightweight and easy to implement. ! Development Lead by IBM New v3.1.1 spec is standardized at OASIS IUUQEPDTPBTJTPQFOPSHNRUUNRUUWNRUUWIUNM IUUQXXXJCNDPNEFWFMPQFSXPSLTMJCSBSZXTNRUU

    Features of the protocol • Light weight publish/subscribe protocol over

    TCP/IP • A small transport overhead • the fixed-length header is just 2 bytes • QoS - Three qualities of service for message delivery. Qos 0:”At most once”, QoS 1: ”At least once”, QoS 2: ”Exactly once”. • A mechanism to notify interested parties to an abnormal disconnection of a client using the Last Will and Testament feature IUUQUEPDJOGPCMPHNRUUIUNM
  3. 6.

    Fit for M2M (IoT) These characteristics make it ideal for

    use in constrained environments, for example, but not limited to: ! • Where the network is expensive, has low bandwidth or is unreliable • When run on an embedded device with limited processor or memory resources

    What is MQTT.IO? MQTT.IO is a porting “MQTT over WebSocket”

    to the Socket.IO. Currently just experimental project. ! Socket.IO 1.0 supports Binary streaming, so we can do it now! Thanks Guillermo!

    Advantage of MQTT.IO vs WebSocket We can use MQTT anywhere!

    ! Many MQTT broker support WebSocket, but some of load-balancer/reverse-proxy like Amazon ELB cannot allow WebSocket connection (> <)

    Advantage of MQTT.IO vs Socket.IO • Easy to use many

    other language • JavaScript, Java, Go, C/C++, Python • Flexible pub/sub using wildcards • /groups/group1/1 => Send to user 1 • /groups/group1/# => Send to group1 • /groups/# => Broadcast to all group • Can Use MQTT features (QoS, Will, Retain) • Easy to Scale Backend servers (maybe)
