November 14, 2017 - HMS Industrial Networks announced support for the IoT protocols OPC UA and MQTT within the Anybus CompactCom range of embedded networking solutions. With OPC UA and MQTT in the portfolio, device and machine manufacturers who use CompactCom are offered a path to providing secure data to the IIoT factories of tomorrow. To achieve the vision of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), device and machine manufacturers are required not only to connect their hardware to different industrial networks on OT (operational technology), but also to provide data to IT systems and IoT software.
Anybus CompactCom now opens a new door to IIoT, thanks to the support for OPC UA and MQTT. Thousands of device manufacturers and machine builders who use CompactCom can now make their data available to IT systems and IoT software in a secure way.
The support for OPC UA and MQTT in CompactCom facilitates communication with IT-systems and IIoT applications, offering data straight from a device or machine. Users will be able to analyze data from CompactCom-equipped devices and machines for the purpose of e.g. predictive maintenance and manufacturing optimization.
HMS is recognizing OPC UA and MQTT as two of the most important protocols for data and information exchange within the smart industrial solutions of the future. Accordingly, OPC UA and MQTT is implemented into the CompactCom industrial Ethernet offering, starting with the EtherNet/IP and PROFINET versions end of 2017.
