The industrial MQTT communication protocol is a powerful tool that allows you to exchange device data freely among devices and applications, with little or no IT involvement.
Its simplicity and flexibility make it a popular choice for today's IIoT applications. Adding the open-source Sparkplug specification to MQTT adds even more structure and better support for industrial applications.
In this new video, Opto 22 engineer Terry Orchard takes you through a tutorial on using MQTT with Sparkplug, and how it enhances the following MQTT functions:
- State Management
- Topic Name Space
- Payload Format
The video explains these differences and shows how they apply to the use of MQTT in industrial automation.
