MT sensor Integration with IoT builder

Greetings,

I was going through the IoT builder datasheet and which has a diagram that describes the implementation I am adding the picture below. My question here is how are we streaming the Real-time data? is it using streaming API or MQTT? Any documentation that will help me understand this better will be really appreciated.

Topic is covered here https://documentation.meraki.com/MT/MT_General_Articles/MT_MQTT_Setup_Guide. The sensor gateway (Camera or Access Point) is the one using MQTT to communicate with the MQTT broker.

Thank you for the quick reply, Ryan. I have referred to the document you shared and I understand the Broker & Gateway use MQTT. My question was about the "Real-time data" streaming between the MR/MV & the IoT builder also using MQTT? as shown in the picture attached with my question. 

Yeah it would be using MQTT (AFAIK) because that's a streaming protocol. API isn't a stream and rather a push/pull type service.

Hi, the communication between MT and IoT Builder is through MQTT for the data and API for the configuration.
