IoT Ready with OPC UA

Kathrein Solutions becomes member of the OPC Foundation!

Kathrein Solutions GmbH is a new member of the OPC UA Foundation. The OPC Foundation, based in Arizona/USA, is a global organisation responsible for the development and maintenance of a secure, reliable and platform-independent communication standard in automation.

This is a further essential step to support manufacturer- and platform-independent standards for solutions in the IoT and Industry 4.0 environment.

As a member of the OPC Foundation, Kathrein Solutions has access to the specifications, tests and certifications to ensure the compatibility of the developed technologies.

In this area, Kathrein Solutions will be able to offer its customers advanced functionalities in the future and, therefore, will be able to provide early applications for future key technologies.

Kathrein Solutions sees OPC UA as an important standard in the IoT data communication.

OPC Foundation

The OPC Foundation has addressed this challenge of a universal, global language by developing a new information exchange standard for all. And they have found great success. The number of Foundation members is growing rapidly.

Today, more than 700 companies worldwide are already involved in the global association. According to Stefan Hoppe, President and Executive Director of the OPC Foundation, one of the Foundation's greatest strengths is its independence. Stefan Hoppe believes that this ensures neutrality, which is essential for a globally usable standard.
