Explain the difference between WAMP and MQTT

INTRODUCTION

Before breaking down the factual statements about WAMP and MQTT, let us understand what Azure IoT Hub is. Azure IoT Hub is regarded as the fundamental solution for the connection between the back-end with any device possible. It is a cloud-hosted solution.

Azure IoT Hub can be connected to any device or device-to-cloud telemetry and it assists the uploading of files from devices.

What does Azure IoT Hub help us with?

Azure IoT Hub endorses monitoring and it also helps you to track your device connections, creations, and failures. It enables organizations across various industries to enhance their business to accomplish their IoT goals. The Azure cloud platform comprises more than 200 products as well as cloud services that are designed to help consumers with better solutions. It is supported by continuous innovations and promotes development for today as well as for the future that lies ahead.

Azure IoT Hub is made up of one or more than one IoT device and several back-end services that communicate with each other.

IoT Hub supports and braces multiple messaging patterns such as file upload from devices and request-reply methods to control your devices from the cloud.

Explaining WAMP

To begin with, WAMP is a WebSocket protocol that is originally registered at IANA. Specifically, it offers routed RPC and PubSub.

This WAMP protocol is manoeuvred and designed in such a way that it has a set goal to give a standard for real-time messages among application components and also offer ease with the creation of architectures that are based on microservices.

Due to this very reason, the WAMP technology happens to be an extremely suitable enterprise service bus, also known as ESB. It is also capable of developing responsive Web applications for the coordination of devices in the Internet of Things.

WAMP also seeks requirements of a reliable, ordered as well as maintained message channel. This acts as a transport layer and uses WebSocket inherently. But the implementations can make use of other transports as well, which match these characteristics and also communicate with WAMP. For example, raw sockets, HTTP long polls and so on. WAMP is architectured around the client–client communications. This is made possible with central software, the router and dispatching messages between them.

What is MQTT?

MQTT is short for – “Message Queuing Telemetry Transport”, which is the fundamental thing that one needs to be aware of about MQTT. It’s a communications standard created exclusively for Internet of Things (IoT) applications.

Andy Stanford-Clark and Arlen Nipper worked at IBM’s Cambridge software lab. They were the hands behind the creation of MQTT.

It uses a publish-and-subscribe architecture; The protocol has become particularly popular with the Internet of Things as it makes it simple and convenient to link or connect several devices or sensors. Under the OASIS standard, the MQTT protocol is based on TCP/IP.

Difference between WAMP and MQTT

MQTT, as we know, is being curated and shaped as the interoperability protocol for the Internet of Things (IoT). MQTT essentially utilised an extremely concise footprint for the embedded devices. Further, the same can be put in use for many real-time applications with the assistance of the publish-and-subscribe mechanism offered by it. Even for metrics publishing, one of its low head protocols can be used. The person at the helm of operating it can use it the way they like. It is a message protocol.

On the contrary, WAMP is a Remote procedure call and is working to solve an entirely distinct area of issue.

WAMP, usually, can operate and work as a network between the cloud side of the issue of endless processes but MQTT reduces the space when it comes to the sensor or embedded side of the problem in the cloud communication.

CONCLUSION

Azure IoT Hub is a cloud-hosted solution that can be connected to any device or device-to-cloud telemetry it assists the uploading of files from devices and it also allows organizations across various industries to enhance their business to accomplish their IoT goals. With the assistance of an Azure IoT Hub, you can track your device connections, creations, and failures.

MQTT stands for “Message Queuing Telemetry Transport” and it uses a publish-and-subscribe mechanism which is the reason why it is so simple to link or connect several devices or sensors.

The main difference between WAMP and MQTT is the fact that WAMP can be utilised as a network between the cloud side of the issue/problem of limitless processes but MQTT is responsible to decrease the gap when it comes to the sensor or embedded side of the problem in the cloud communication.
