MQTT and AirLink Vehicle Telemetry

MQTT (MQ Telemetry Transport) is a publish/subscribe protocol for M2M applications and is now an OASIS standard.
MQTT uses the publish/subscribe paradigm. Clients connect to a “broker” and can publish messages on “topics”. All the subscribers to this topic will receive the messages and a client can connect to any topic. This allows one-to-one, many-to-one, or one-to-many communication patterns.

MQTT and AirLink Vehicle Telemetry

Vehicle Telemetry Application contains an MQTT client and by default, will publish telemetry data to the “broker” on the AirVantage ALMS platform. Users developing their own applications will configure the telemetry application to publish data to an MQTT broker on their server.

Users who wish to develop their own applications using AirLink Vehicle Telemetry are responsible for setting up their own MQTT “broker”. Links to various MQTT broker implementations for various server platforms are available on the MQTT.org website.
