All webinars are free of charge.

Webinar—Introduction to OPC UA and Migration from Classic OPC to OPC UA (1 hour)

You have an OPC Data Access Server providing a standardized interface to your product. You have one or more of the following customer requirements:

  • I want to access the OPC interface through a firewall
  • I need remote access but I want to avoid DCOM configuration
  • I want to connect an application on a non Windows operating system to your server
  • I want to restrict access to certain data to authorized persons only
  • I need a secure connection over the internet

How do you solve these requirements: OPC UA

I can use an external protocol converter to support OPC UA in my products. Why should I implement OPC UA natively in my product?

Answer the following questions:

  • Do you want to avoid multiple software layers?
  • Do you want to get best performance?
  • Do you want the advanced OPC UA features in your product?

This webinar will cover:

  • What are the benefits of OPC UA?
  • Migration from Classic OPC to OPC UA using Unified Automation’s UaGateway (features and license model)
  • UA enabling of existing products and development of new OPC UA products using Unified Automation's OPC UA SDKs.

This presentation targets software architects, product managers, project managers, developers, and anyone else interested in OPC UA.
