Webinar Overview

The manufacturing industry is characterized by factory equipment that communicates via proprietary protocols that make it very difficult to consolidate data from a factory to implement deep data analysis or machine learning algorithms. Apache PLC4X with MQTT are well suited to free your manufacturing data so companies can begin a modernization of their manufacturing processes.

This webinar will discuss the 4 freedoms offered by Apache PLC4X & MQTT:

  • Apache PLC4X is free open source software so developers have access to the source code.

  • Free and open standards, like MQTT, are used to transmit the factory data to the cloud.

  • Freedom to choose the implementation language through the different languages SDKs offered by Apache PLC4X.

  • and, freedom on license costs since Apache PLC4X is open source.
