Title: MQTT Version 5.0 Working Draft 15
MQTT is a Client Server publish/subscribe messaging transport protocol. It is
light weight, open, simple, and designed to be easy to implement. These
characteristics make it ideal for use in many situations, including
environments such as for communication in Machine to Machine (M2M) and
of Things (IoT) contexts where a small code footprint is required and/or
bandwidth is at a premium.
The protocol runs over TCP/IP, or over other network protocols that provide
ordered, lossless, bi-directional connections. Its features include:
• Use of the publish/subscribe message pattern which provides one-to-many
message distribution and decoupling of applications.
• A messaging transport that is agnostic to the content of the payload.
• Three qualities of service for message delivery:
• "At most once", where messages are delivered according to the best
of the operating environment. Message loss can occur. This level could be
for example, with ambient sensor data where it does not matter if an
reading is lost as the next one will be published soon after.
• "At least once", where messages are assured to arrive but duplicates can
• "Exactly once", where messages are assured to arrive exactly once. This
level could be used, for example, with billing systems where duplicate or
messages could lead to incorrect charges being applied.
• A small transport overhead and protocol exchanges minimized to reduce
A mechanism to notify interested parties when an abnormal disconnection
wd15 includes tracked changes. Please can thee be accepted before the CSD is
released. The editors have requested that the Status section be updated, but
think that's part of the cover sheet and will get replaced anyway.
