-- Information about the Candidate OASIS Standard and the MQTT TC --

MQTT is a client/server publish/subscribe messaging transport protocol. It is lightweight, open, simple, and designed to be easy to implement. These characteristics make it ideal for use in many situations, including constrained environments such as for communication in Machine to Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) contexts where a small code footprint is required and/or network bandwidth is at a premium.

The protocol runs over TCP/IP, or over other network protocols that provide ordered, lossless, bi-directional connections.

The TC received 4 Statements of Use from HiveMQ, IBM, the Eclipse Paho Project, and VerneMQ [2].
