MQTT broker feature, PubSub capabilities now available for Azure Event Grid

Published date: November 15, 2023

To support the growing demand for connectivity, integration and analytics between Internet of Things (IoT) devices and cloud-based services, Azure Event Grid’s new MQTT broker feature is now generally available.

This enables bi-directional communication between MQTT clients at scale, enabling one-to-many, many-to-one and one-to-one messaging patterns using MQTT v3.1.1 and MQTT v5 protocols.

This new capability combined with support for pull delivery (now also GA) and push delivery of events via HTTP means that Event Grid customers benefit from flexible consumption patterns, at scale.

To support customer demand for scalability, Event Grid has also doubled capacity to 40 throughput units in each namespace.

Further enabling ingestion pipelines, Event Grid namespaces can also be used to push events at scale to Azure Event Hubs.  This feature is in public preview.
