Some of the key challenges to IIoT deployments are unreliable bi-directional connectivity across all levels of automation, as well as inconsistent data messaging across all areas. Security becomes extremely vital when everything is connected and different hardware suppliers have non-standard protocols and platforms. All these challenges make it difficult for many manufacturers to modernize their infrastructure and ultimately move themselves into the Fourth Industrial Revolution (IR 4.0).
In this webcast, we will introduce the key concepts of MQTT Sparkplug, and how it can promote simplified IIoT architectures.
Sparkplug is an emerging new specification built on top of MQTT that aims to break down the data silos created by pairwise integrations commonly found in IIoT architectures. Where MQTT allows for IIoT systems to decouple operations data from specific applications, Sparkplug defines a common format for MQTT data exchange that promotes plug ‘n play interoperability between hardware solutions and software solutions.
