OPC Foundation in the transition… From

“Interoperability Standard for Industrial Automation”


“The Industrial Interoperability Standard” … on the way to additional markets

OPC UA specific selection of events or life data to be included in messages

Messaging protocol specific encoding and transport Different protocols can be supported e.g. AMQP, MQTT

OPC Unified Architecture is much more than just a protocol Data Modeling


Generic object oriented modeling Objects with variables, methods and events Extensible type system History for data and events State machines, programs, alarms & condition Complex data

Integrated security mechanisms High speed UA TCP protocol Web services for internet Platform independent Built in robustness and fault tolerance Redundancy


New Applications and use cases

UA is IEC standard UA is base for other information models EDDL and FDT MIMOSA OMAC PLCopen

Profiles for different use cases Scalability Integration in embedded systems MES and ERP systems Specialized versions for different industries

People keep asking: What is the difference of OPC UA to protocols like AMQP, MQTT, HTTP/SOAP?

Well – first of all - OPC UA is not a protocol. It is rather a framework for the representation and exchange of object-oriented information including an extensible type system that enables describing arbitrarily complex systems.

To exchange the object-based information, OPC UA provides two mechanisms ◦ A Client-Server model where the Client accesses the information of a Server using well-defined Services, and ◦ A Publish-Subscribe model, where the Server publishes configured sets of data to any number of Subscribers.

Both exchange mechanisms are defined abstract. To achieve interoperability between OPC UA applications, however, these abstract definitions are mapped to specific protocols, namely ◦ TCP and HTTPS for the Client-Server Services, ◦ UDP and AMQP + MQTT for the Publish-Subscribe model.

Nothing of the OPC UA framework depends on these protocols. They may eventually be replaced or complemented by additional protocol-mappings.

So in summary, OPC UA is a framework to connect systems by allowing the exchange of information and their semantics. OPC UA makes use of established protocols like HTTP or MQTT and can easily make use of others if required by technological advances.
