Engineer’s Look Under The Hood At OPC-UA. - (A bottom up exploration of OPC-UA and how to interpret messages using WireShark )
15445877fc93d38e0917efc57b11ed27-huge-opJoin us on 17th November at 2pm to hear about how OPC-UA is very different from all other industrial protocols such as Modbus, DNP3 etc. In fact, so much so, that the body overseeing its development and standard (the OPC Foundation) do not class it as a protocol at all - preferring the term data model.  This webinar is unique in that it avoids, as much as possible, the theory behind the development of OPC-UA and concentrates on its benefits compared to other industrial protocols and where and how to implement it.
