Growing adoption of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industrie 4.0 is driving requirements for open and secure connectivity between devices (e.g., machine-to-machine) and edge-to-cloud solutions.
Those who deploy the OPC Unified Architecture (UA) will be able to better leverage plant floor to enterprise communications as a vehicle to participate in IIoT applications. The goal for OPC is to be a standard for interoperability for moving information vertically through the enterprise of multi-vendor systems as well as providing interoperability between devices on different industrial networks from different vendors.
Since OPC UA serves as a key data connectivity standard for industrial automation, vendors are seeking to enable their new and existing products with this technology to compete on the IIoT/Industrie 4.0 landscape.
In order to quickly and efficiently implement OPC UA in their products, controls suppliers need an effective software development kit (SDK) to minimize development time and effort, and deliver secure and reliable products.
