Azure Service Bus

Azure Service Bus is a good choice for listening for incoming messages, it will allow incredible scale. For this option, your devices will communicate directly with Azure Service Bus and NuvIoT will subscribe to that bus to receive messages. Once the message is received, it can participate in the standard NuvIoT Procssing Pipeline, including the Device ID and Message Parsers.
