Webinar Overview

Sparkplug is an open-source software specification for increasing MQTT interoperability, developed mainly in IIoT and Industry 4.0. It provides MQTT Clients with a framework to seamlessly integrate data from their applications, sensors, devices, and gateways within the MQTT infrastructure in a bi-directional and interoperable way.

The goal of MQTT Sparkplug is to upgrade the architecture of tightly-coupled, complex, and customized connections and data exchange between the components of OT and IT to a decoupled and centralized modern architecture.
