This topic describes the limits of AMQP service subscription.

Limit Description
Authentication timeout An authentication request is sent immediately after a connection is established. If the authentication is not successful within 15 seconds, the server closes the connection.
Data timeout When the server establishes a connection with IoT Platform, the heartbeat time (the idle-timeout parameter in the AMQP) is required. The value ranges from 30 to 300, in seconds.

After the connection is established, the server must send ping packets within the heartbeat time to maintain the connection. If no ping packet is sent within the heartbeat time, IoT Platform closes the connection.
