Unsolicited notification

If the MQTT client successfully subscribes to a topic, the following unsolicited notification indicates that a message from the topic is received:

#XMQTTMSG: <topic_length>,<message_length><CR><LF>
<topic_received><CR><LF>
<message>
  • The <topic_length> value is an integer. It indicates the length of the <topic_received> field.
