SORACOM Beam MQTT Entry Point version 201509 End of Service Notice
SORACOM Beam, a proxy and protocol conversion service which offloads encryption forwards data from IoT devices to the cloud, provides support for multiple protocols through various entry points, such as HTTP, MQTT, TCP, and UDP entry points.
When using the MQTT entry point to forward an MQTT connection from a device to a destination MQTT broker, you are currently able to select between two Soracom platform versions:
201509. Soracom will end support for the
201509 version on January 20, 2022.

For more information about differences between the
201509 versions, refer to the SORACOM Beam: MQTT Entry Point documentation.
Updating Beam MQTT Entry Point Configurations to Version 201912
If you are currently using the
201509 version in your Beam MQTT Entry Point configuration, please note that any configurations that still use version
201509 will automatically be switched to version
201912 on January 20, 2022, once support for the previous version has ended. Depending on the configuration of the MQTT client on your device, your device may no longer be able to connect to the destination MQTT broker in order to send or receive data once this change occurs.
Please carefully review the details in the SORACOM Beam: MQTT Entry Point documentation for information on how to update your device settings and migrate your Beam configuration to version
201912 in advance, in order to avoid interruption.
