OPC Training Institute Selects Kepware for demonstrations
The latest generation of Kepware's OPC server technology, KEPServerEX, was designed to allow users to quickly setup communications from equipment to control and business systems via a wide range of available "plug-in" device drivers and components. The OPC Training Institute (OPCTI) will use Kepware OPC products and technology in their training classes and webinars, especially when demonstrating OPC server functionality and device connectivity.
In addition, Kepware both endorses and promotes OPCTI activities and provides demonstration products and documentation to OPCTI for use in all training activities world-wide.
The OPC Training Institute is an excellent new venture, dedicated to promoting OPC standards and creating Certified OPC Professionals, says Roy Kok, VP of Sales and Marketing for Kepware. They deliver a valuable service to this industry and we are pleased to help them support the spread of OPC technology awareness around the globe he added.
Kepware is the leading provider of OPC and device communications in our industry, says Randy Kondor, President of the OPC Training Institute. Its natural for us to select a widely used product within industry as our demonstration platform. Many of our clients already use Kepware products and so they have a head start when attending our courses. Those new to OPC can get their OPC projects started quickly simply by downloading Kepware products from Kepwares website. Kepware has been excellent to work with, delivering products and support as we need it around the world.

Kepware is also an early adopter of OPC-UA technology and will play an important role in delivering our newest standards to the market. This relationship dramatically expands the reach of OPC and it should be beneficial to OPC users around the globe.
