No Content
There is no information in the body or payload of the message. The only information provided is the DeviceID, ServerID, and MessageID

Binary is a two-digit (Base-2) numerical system which computers use. The reason computers use the binary system is because digital switches inside the computer can only be set to either on or off, which are represented by a 1 or 0.

A set of characters/words separated by a symbol such as a comma, backslash, or forward slash.

Used to upload images or media from an external source.


Point Array

Protocol Buffers
A method of serializing structured data. It is useful in developing programs to communicate with each other over a wire or for storing data.
