Busting OPC UA Myths

$id = 199; Posted on December 2nd, 2008 by Eric Murphy

Seems like a lot of people enjoyed the previous episodes of OPC Mythbusters, so I decided to let Adam and Jamie have a go at the big myth – “OPC UA – Is it Ready?” This time they get a little help from a couple of guest stars. Enjoy!


(If the clip doesn’t appear try this link)


OPC UA has made great progress in the last year with many concrete products and architectures coming together. Since OPC UA is a set of layer specifications and the core set is solid, then OPC UA is ready to go.  Of course, as with any implementation roll out as ambitious as OPC UA there is still more work to be done if you consider the full scope. Let’s hear from you.  What aspects of OPC UA do you think should get the most focus in the coming year?  Release of the final Access Type specifications? More stringent guidelines on how vendors implement OPC UA security? Adding more features to the SDK? Release of the OPC UA Compliance tools and test cases? Increasing the stability and/or usability of the SDK? Other items?
