All around us we hear buzzwords like Industry 4.0, IIoT, smart factories and smart devices. The core concept of this new technological era is the connectivity of every single device. That means that they should communicate in a vendor-independent, standardized, scalable, IT- and OT-ready, interoperable, and secure way. This can only be achieved using smart IIoT communication protocols. But where to start?
Client/Server, pub/sub, Request/Response?
Our white paper explains essential terms in the context of TCP-based communication.
Gain insight into the structure and function of these protocols using practical examples:
Which protocol is best suited for my application?
The detailed comparison in seven categories, such as interoperability, security and implementation, provides valuable guidance.
