short for Message Queue Telemetry Transport, is a light weight open Source messaging protocol for the Internet of Things.
Why should I use it?
MQTT is a great and easy way to exchange low frequency messages like sensor readings, or program states etc. between multiple machines and services. Its very robust with a small footprint.
It is based on the publish/subscribe paradigm and requires a central MQTT Broker.
If you wan't to host your own broker have a look at:
