MQTT: a standard communication protocol for the Internet of Things

The success and the resulting pervasive adoption of the MQTT protocol in the IoT / M2M field, is linked to the ease of use and a combination of other important functional and non-functional features. MQTT is a lightweight communication protocol, it uses TCP as the underlying transport layer and an efficient binary encoding for messages serialization. The size of the fixed part of the MQTT message header is only 2 bytes, a very low overhead which makes it ideal for exchanging large amounts of data in small packages on poorly performing networks.
