Description: In the past, manufacturing plants were built with the minimum requirements for safe and efficient operation. The data produced and consumed was well-known and well-defined. Today, many new sources of data are coming online as part of industry digital transformation journey efforts. There is now an even greater need for an efficient and scalable way to support the plethora of data points, along with an ever-increasing list of acronyms to define in the technology bag of IoT, IIoT, OPC, MQTT and the like. We will take an unbiased look at various options available to end users seeking secure, standards-based technology to support their IIoT architecture. Prominent industry expert speakers from various technology and business areas will discuss the latest advancements in the interoperability arena. Each will demonstrate how open-system architectures such as OPC UA and MQTT enable secure and timely sharing of data within control systems, across networks and across an entire enterprise.
Topics of discussion will include:
Conformance and adoption
Legacy equipment support and the future roadmap
