About this event

OpenOpcUa, jointly with its sponsors, invites you to attend a hands-on workshop on OPC UA and OpenOpcUa. This exceptional event will allow you to discover the benefits of the new OPC Foundation Unified Architecture: OPC UA and how to develop UA components using OpenOpcUa.

About OPC UA

Since 1995, the OPC Foundation has provided the key technology for industrial system interoperability.  OPC standards, originally based on COM/DCOM technology, have been widely deployed.  OPC has helped many companies effectively achieve interoperability across energy, industrial automation/ manufacturing and Building Automation industries. Today, the Foundation has continued on the path of interoperability, extended the scope of the OPC specification and updated the technology to be platform independent by using modern communication techniques.  Now, WAN integration of devices with systems such as ERP, MES, IoT Integration Platforms, and Smartgrid can benefit from OPC UA technology.  From the shop floor to the top floor, OPC UA integrates data based on deployment of a model driven architecture. Discover how to take advantage of this powerful technology by using the OpenOpcUa implementation.

Device Communication Issues:

·      How can I deploy secure two-way asynchronous wide area communications?

·      How can I develop components on Linux, Windows, and on embedded systems?

·      How do I replace Modbus and DNP3/IEC 60870  with modern technology?

Who can benefit from attending?

·      All software architects, consultants, and developers in charge of all or part of O&M application and device integration.

·      Developers of device connectors.

·      Device hardware vendors and automation system integrators.

·      Designers and resellers of OPC products including companies selling OPC DA drivers for their hardware.

During this session you will learn:

·      How OPC UA provides secure, very high performance platform independent technology for device data integration across a wide area.

·      How OPC UA provides off-the-shelf interoperability with business applications (MES, ERP, AMS, GIS, ...).

·      How OPC has become the preferred solution for the exchange of information between the different standards (BacNet,  ISA, Foundation Fieldbus, HART, IEC 61850, Communication Foundation, FDI).
