OPC Foundation and M2M Alliance form joint working group
May 2017, News

The M2M & OPCF user group has been founded in order to document and spread best practices for building secure communication solutions and smart services based on device and machine data.

Today’s devices and machines produce high-value data and communication enables remote access to it. Internet-based smart services enable new business cases, like production as a service, which mine the value of the available data. However, a prerequisite is that these smart devices exchange data in a secure way.

Currently, many device and machine builders struggle with these security challenges. Thereby, they give away the ability to use the data to improve their products and services and reduce costs. Now, the information already available within the M2M Alliance and the OPCF to build secure solutions becomes available through the user group.
