Connect a mcGateway with Ubidots over MQTT
Learn to setup your mcGateway to be able to send data to the Ubidots cloud over MQTT.
The mcGateway is always placed within a certain radius of the mcModules to provide connectivity from your sensor hardware to the internet. This gateway will allow you to speak with and thousands of mcModules, transferring the required information back and forth using our mc-Air Low Power Local Area Network, GPS, ethernet or WIFI.
IMPORTANT: If you are purchasing a mc-Module, ensure you also have the mc-Gateway and the mcDongle. All three products in tandem work to create the mcThings platform which can easily communicate with Ubidots direct from the devices or by way of the mcStudio and UbiFunctions.
By the end of this guide you will be able to setup your mcGateway to forward the data received from the mcModules to Ubidots. If you've already setup the mcGateway, refer to the guide below to setup the mcModules to start transmitting data.
