It is suitable for mission-critical solutions collecting data on the edge of the network, such as manufacturing, remote facilities, smart hospitals, smart cities, and smart buildings.



MQTT concepts

MQTT is a client-server messaging protocol for software to publish and subscribe to messages. It is optimized for the Internet of Things (IoT). Its key features are simplicity and ease of use.

Broker forwarding

MQTT forwards messages from one broker to another to form a chain. This is a great way to move information across data centers.

Differentiating features

Many features of FairCom MQ make the FairCom server distinctly different from other database servers.
