Robert, accompanied by Johan Huisaman and Andries Mokoukoe, explained the requirements and processes involved in connecting IIot devices to the cloud. The latest technologies, including MQTT and OPC UA interfaces into Microsoft Azure and Amazon AWS, were explored. The presentation was informative and interactive. A practical guide and display was given on how to access the cloud via different software and cloud servers. MQTT is an ISO standard publish/subscribe-based messaging protocol. It works on top of the TCP/IP protocol and is designed for connections with remote locations where a ‘small code-footprint’ is required, or the network bandwidth is limited.

The team gave the audience a practical guide on how to create an OPC UA network and a live demo using MQTT to connect devices to the cloud. Other topics covered were:

• OPC UA, what does this mean?

• What can clouds provide?

• How secure are clouds?

The branch thanks Robert and his team for their informative presentation and demonstrations.
