MQ Telemetry Transport (MQTT) was invented in 2001 as a TCP/IP message transport designed specifically for event-based real-time SCADA. MQTT remained relatively obscure until the recent emergence of M2M/IIoT technologies in the development community at large. Now MQTT is one of the leading message transports in IIoT. This session introduces a high-level explanation of MQTT, why it was invented for SCADA, and how it can be used natively in Ignition, right now.
