Publisher

the end device or IoT Node acts as Publisher. Publisher publishes the information or Data. The data published by the Publisher is called Topic. The Topic always has a unique title.

Broker

The Broker resides at the central server or Cloud platform such as Amazon AWS, Google, or Azure. The Broker receives the data from the Publisher and passes it to the Subscriber.

Subscriber

The Subscriber receives the Topic from the Broker. Sometimes the Publisher and Subscriber reside on the same device or node for better Remote Monitoring and Control.
