Altova has launched an update to its low code application development platform for building enterprise apps on iOS, Android and Windows. The MobileTogether platform is designed to develop applications targeting manufacturing, industrial and smart home environments.

MobileTogether 9.0 introduces full support for MQTT, allowing developers to build MQTT-enabled apps for communication among smart devices.

MQTT (Message Queuing Telemetry Transport) is a lightweight messaging protocol used for communication by smart devices. MQTT is a component of real-time monitoring and control of devices and processes in a variety of industries including automotive, manufacturing, transportation, and healthcare.

MQTT-enabled apps can be invaluable for realising the potential of smart devices in industrial automation.

MobileTogether 9.0 introduces complete support for building MQTT-enabled apps with new actions, page events, and variables for interacting with an MQTT network as a publisher, a subscriber, or both.

“MQTT support in MobileTogether opens new possibilities for developers to build highly effective solutions in the rapidly evolving landscape of smart devices and IoT,” said Alexander Falk, President and CEO for Altova. “We believe that this update will empower our developer community to build robust and reliable solutions for seamless communication between smart devices and systems across a wide range of industries.”
