The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) incorporates devices and applications developed by many suppliers and running on many platforms. To ensure that these complex systems of systems are easier to integrate – as well as less expensive and more efficient to build – it is critical to take advantage of standard interfaces and protocols.

National Instruments’ LabVIEW 2017 simplifies integration so that you can rapidly connect to diverse hardware and software assets. Now, LabVIEW 2017 incorporates support for the two leading interoperability standards used in IIoT systems: OPC UA and DDS. Where OPC UA targets device interchangeability, DDS targets software integration and autonomy. Built-in support for these two standards allows developers and integrators to better take advantage of the power of LabVIEW and NI hardware to build large-scale and heterogeneous IIoT systems.

Join technical experts from NI, the global leader in virtual instrumentation, and RTI, the IIoT connectivity framework company, for this co-hosted webinar. We will cover data communications support in LabVIEW 2017, introduce OPC and RTI DDS Toolkits, compare and contrast OPC UA and DDS standards and provide guidance on choosing the best solution for architecting your IIoT solution.
