Architecting a Unified Namespace for IIoT

Architecting a Unified Namespace for IIoT Webinar


    Webinar Overview

    Building a Unified Namespace (UNS) can help industrial companies digitally transform into data-driven businesses. Legacy architectures are full of point-to-point connections and modernization requires an interoperable framework for seamless data exchange across various platforms and applications. Building a UNS can accelerate Industry 4.0 outcomes from improved customer experiences, to operational efficiency, to digital twin use cases.

    Watch this webinar to learn more about how the customers we work with at HiveMQ are architecting their Unified Namespace. We’ll share lessons learned and best practices to help viewers gain practical knowledge they can apply in their own deployments.

    Learn how building a UNS can help your organization:

    • Bridge the gap from OT to IT

    • Create a framework for agility and scalability

    • Prepare for complex use cases such as AI/ML and advanced analytics

    Key Takeaways

    • The Unified Namespace (UNS) is a way to integrate data from disparate industrial systems into a common data infrastructure using MQTT, allowing companies to rapidly innovate and address different use cases without having to set up new connectivity each time.

    • Traditional industrial data integration involves point-to-point connections between systems, leading to a complex "spaghetti" architecture that is difficult to manage and scale as new use cases arise.

    • The UNS follows an "Edge-driven" approach where data is published from its originating sources (Edge) into the common MQTT data infrastructure, creating a real-time snapshot of the current state and events across the business operations.

    • The UNS promotes an open architecture, allowing companies to choose best-in-class tools for each use case rather than being locked into a vertically integrated solution.

    • Companies can semantically structure the UNS hierarchy based on existing organizational or industry standards like ISA95, making data discovery and consumption intuitive across IT and OT domains.

    • An IIoT platform or data operations layer contextualizes, normalizes, and models raw data from disparate sources before publishing it into consumable functional namespaces within the UNS.

    • The UNS enables automatic discovery of new assets, lines, or areas as they are commissioned, providing real-time visibility across the enterprise without manual integration efforts.

    • Security and access control are critical for maintaining data trust and integrity within the UNS, with HiveMQ extensions enabling authentication, authorization and role-based permissions management.
