This latest video in our Automation 101 series provides a deeper dive and explanation of the MQTT central server, or the "broker".
As you recall from previous posts, the industrial MQTT communication protocol is a powerful tool that allows you to exchange device data freely among devices and applications, with little or no IT involvement. Its simplicity and flexibility make it a popular choice for today's IIoT applications.
We've added a new video to the Automation 101 series that gives a thorough explanation of the MQTT broker. The communication model of MQTT offers several benefits over the traditional poll and response model.
In this tutorial, we'll take a look at an MQTT broker and what advantages it can provide for IoT and IIoT applications.
The video covers:
- How the MQTT model works
- What an MQTT broker is and where it can run
- Useful features and functionality that the broker provides
- Retain messages
- Birth, death, and last will and testament messages
