Unified Namespace (UNS) Essentials

Your One-stop Guide to Understanding UNS in Totality

Unified Namespace (UNS) is a novel solution that allows you to collect data from various industrial IoT (IIoT) systems, add context to it, and transform it into a format that other systems can understand.

UNS Essentials Series

In this series, you will learn what Unified Namespace (UNS) is and why it matters, how it works, and how to implement it using MQTT and Sparkplug. This guide will help IIoT Solution Architects and Digital Transformation Specialists in manufacturing understand the Unified Namespace so you can utilize this highly effective architectural approach in your digital strategies.
