MQTT Protocol Communication

Subscribe and publish to MQTT topics

Industrial Communication Toolbox™ allows you to subscribe to and read messages from MQTT topics via third-party MQTT brokers, and to write messages to MQTT topics.

Message Queuing Telemetry Transport (MQTT) is an OASIS standard messaging protocol for the Internet of Things (IoT). It is designed as an extremely lightweight publish/subscribe messaging transport that is ideal for connecting remote devices with a small code footprint and minimal network bandwidth.
