Networking architectures on the factory floor today are based on standard Ethernet which is typically inadequate for real-time synchronization. In addition, managing data communications between machines typically uses vendor-specific proprietary protocols. This webinar will show how emerging standards such as TSN and OPC UA will allow machines to interoperate in real-time using open standards. You'll also learn the most modern information modeling techniques. These new standards will allow the automation industry to tackle the challenge of merging the IT & OT infrastructure to a holistic IIoT architecture.
