Last month Andy Piper discussed about the WebSphere MQ Telemetry and new MQTT specification published on DeveloperWorks. Here is the link to the podcast.
Some quotes from the podcast:
"This is were the telemetry protocol fits it ... We are talking about connecting out these edge devices and Internet of Things up into our enterprise systems and existing the messaging systems"
"MQTT protocol has been around for a number of years already... so have customers and companies using this, for example, monitoring patients in the homes, may be a patient has a pace maker and can't get into a clinic for regular checkups, but of-course need to be regularly monitored, so we can have a mobile device next to them sending messages up-to the clinic"
"... anybody start to implement that protocol and inter-operate with WebSphere MQ Telemetry and other products supporting MQ Telemetry Transport."
