Take your projects to the next level with Sparkplug

Posted by Janice Colmer on Sep 21, 2021 8:18:14 AM

Join us for another webinar this week with the Eclipse Foundation and members of the Sparkplug Working Group.

Earlier this year, Opto 22 joined the Eclipse Foundation's Sparkplug Working Group. The group's focus is to foster further collaboration and innovation around the MQTT and Sparkplug standards, an important piece of technology in our groov EPIC and groov RIO product lines.

The Eclipse Foundation has been the home for open-source implementations of the MQTT IoT protocol since 2011. It introduced the SWG in 2020 to continue the development of Sparkplug and broaden its adoption for IIoT. As part of this week's Inductive Community Conference, the group is hosting a webinar demonstrating the difference that Sparkplug makes in the real world.
