OPC UA Pub/Sub over TSN as Real-time M2M Communication-Standards for Industry 4.0

On the OPC Foundation press conference during the SPS/IPC/Drives Fair in Nov. 2014, KUKA communicated the requirements for Pub/Sub and deterministic Real-time for OPC UA. In March 2015, KUKA in Augsburg hosted the kick off meeting for anOPC UA Pub/Sub TSN Initiative. More than 20 leading automation companies joined the meeting and agreed to actively support this Initiative. Two working groups in the OPC Foundation have been founded in June 2015.
What other things have happened since then in regard of real-time OPC UA? What is the current status of OPC UA Pub Sub and TSN?

Jens Wiesner, Federal Office of Information Security (BSI)

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Axel Sikora, M2M Alliance e.V., Hochschule Offenburg, Institut für verlässliche Embedded Systems und Kommunikationselektronik (ivESK)

On the Way to End-to-End-Secure Architectures
Security is more than encryption, End-to-end is more than just connecting two devices. This talk presents an overview on the requirements in a holistic system operation and on the missing parts in many of today's implementations. Also, it reports of the joint activities of the OPC-Foundation and the M2M-Alliance to describe best-practices for security architectures in industrial and IoT Networking.

Erich Barnstedt, Microsoft Azure
Fueling the ecosystem by contributing OPC-UA reference implementations
The OPC Foundation has created the standards for factory interoperability and, more recently, factory communication with the cloud. This talk will describe parts of Microsoft’s collaboration with the OPC Foundation through the delivery of open-source reference implementations of these standards. This allows partners in the ecosystem to build compelling products on the basis of these reference implementations.
