Be One Step Ahead With LoRa® MQTT Bridge: Its Advantages vs a UDP Packet Forwarder

The Internet of Things has given its users speedy and stable data transmission and connection. Some users argue that we can go even faster and more secure, and thus advanced new work protocols like MQTT are born.

A machine-to-machine (M2M) connectivity protocol for IoT, Message Queuing Telemetry Transport or MQTT, is used to send and receive messages in for machine-to-machine telemetry in low bandwidth environments. One company that has taken advantage of this protocol is Facebook.

MQTT is an easily adaptable protocol for all kinds of IoT devices, platforms, and operating systems!

Compared to MQTT, UDP, a protocol usually utilized for establishing low-latency and loss-tolerating connections between applications, is highly unreliable. That is why many solutions providers veered away from UDP and used an MQTT bridge to enhance their gateways instead.

The set-up for MQTT bridges in devices like the RAK7258 is as easy as UDP’s but you are guaranteed more efficient information distribution and gathering, and increased scalability!

MQTT brings new possibilities to IoT gateways everywhere, helping make communication simple, easy, and secure. Learn more about MQTT here:
