#MQTT V5.0 becomes an OASIS Standard

OASIS is pleased to announce that MQTT Version 5.0 has been approved by the membership as an OASIS Standard [1].

The ballot was held under the OASIS call for consent procedure [2]. Under this procedure, consent is assumed unless eligible voters register valid objections. In the ballot, MQTT V5.0 received 17 affirmative consents and no objections. Therefore the standard is approved.

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.

TC Administration will now prepare and publish the final OASIS Standard and notify members when it is available.

Our congratulations to the members of the TC and to the community of implementers, developers and users who have brought the work successfully to this milestone
