OPC Foundation and Object Management Group (OMG) Announce Collaborative Strategy for the OPC UA and DDS Connectivity Standards

The two standards organizations, along with the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) and members of Industrie 4.0 define a position paper describing how they will cooperate with their communication technologies, OPC Unified Architecture (OPC UA) and Data Distribution Services (DDS)

OPC Foundation and Object Management Group® (OMG®) today announced a collaborative strategy for marketing and technical interoperability for the two leading standards for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). The OPC Foundation and OMG have developed a technical positioning and FAQ document for usage of both the OPC Unified Architecture (OPC UA) and the OMG Data Distribution Service™ (DDS) standard.

 

The positioning document explains that the OPC UA and DDS standards are largely complementary and compatible. Both are important to the future of the IIoT. The document is a joint recommendation; it helps companies quickly implement an IIoT strategy.
