Preview: IBM WebSphere MQ will be enhanced with optional feature
designed for smart sensors and telemetry devices
IBM United States
Software Announcement 210-069
April 27, 2010
to offer a new optional feature for WebSphere® MQ to provide messaging
designed for connecting smart sensors and telemetry devices. This new feature
will enable existing WebSphere MQ applications and networks to connect
with remote sensors and devices enabling connectivity to the edge of the enterprise,
supporting sense-and-respond solutions that enable smart work. This new feature
will be comprised of optional capabilities that are separately orderable and
MQ Telemetry Transport (MQTT) support was previously provided by WebSphere Message
Broker. This new optional feature reduces the prerequisites needed for Telemetry
messaging solutions while still enabling WebSphere Message Broker to connect
to sensors and devices leveraging this optional feature of WebSphere MQ.
Capabilities to include:
- Optional feature for connecting telemetry devices like sensors and actuators
- Support for MQTT protocol optimized for resource-constrained sensors and
- Integrated configuration for telemetry messaging with WebSphere MQ
Explorer Eclipse tooling
- MQ Telemetry toolkit, clients, and samples
MQTT is a concise messaging protocol optimized for resource-constrained
sensors and devices. MQ Telemetry Transport uses TCP/IP networking and is
optimized for low bandwidth communications networks with terse messaging headers
that conserve bandwidth. MQ Telemetry Transport provides publish-and-subscribe
messaging that enables sensors and devices to send and receive alerts and
data when significant events occur.

transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help
you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a Web-enabled
solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the
service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed
to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem
resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate,
but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic
The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that
replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services
and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources
for assistance in resolving technical problems.
Service Agent is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server.
It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic,
client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically
reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to
deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and
performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent
is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer
your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic
Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service
for your IBM server.
