On-demand Webinar: Introduction to MQTT Sparkplug with HiveMQ & Opto 22

Posted by Janice Colmer on Jan 29, 2021 10:13:24 AM

Couldn't get into our HiveMQ webinar? You can still try out the live demo for yourself! Just follow along with this recording.

Many IIoT architectures become a complex set of integration "spaghetti," as  Dominik Obermaier, CTO and co-founder of HiveMQ, explains. Even with MQTT as the hub of an IIoT system, true interoperability can be difficult to achieve.

We are always looking for ways to help you solve that challenge and build your own robust IIoT systems, so we teamed up with HiveMQ to present an Introduction to MQTT Sparkplug - Plug 'n Play Interoperability for IIoT.
