dataFEED OPC Suite Launches the World's First Store And Forward Solution for OPC UA


Haar, October 15, 2019 - At the SPS exhibition, Softing Industrial Data Intelligence presents dataFEED OPC Suite with Store And Forward functionality. Here, for the first time, a product is available that temporarily stores the affected data in the event of an interruption of the OPC UA connection.

The new version V5.00 of dataFEED OPC Suite is the first product available worldwide offering users OPC UA Store And Forward Server. It automatically detects an interruption in the connection to an OPC UA Client and ensures the recording of the data to be transmitted for up to one hour. As soon as the OPC UA connection has been re-established, the data is transferred to the OPC UA Client with a correct time stamp.

The new Store And Forward functionality is fully integrated in dataFEED OPC Suite. It can be used with any OPC UA Client and does not require a special OPC UA Historical Access Client for data caching. Using Store And Forward does not affect the security features supported by the OPC UA technology; for example, this functionality can be combined with user authentication or data encryption.

The responsible product manager Andreas Röck summarizes his discussions with dataFEED OPC Suite customers: "With Store And Forward we offer our customers an easy way to protect against data loss. This means that valuable process data can no longer be lost. The fact that Softing is the first to bring this functionality to the market underscores our leadership in OPC UA technology."

Softing’s dataFEED OPC Suite is a comprehensive complete package that covers communication via the OPC standard as well as the implementation of big data solutions and integration in IoT clouds. A modern user interface with intelligent, practice-oriented presettings and an intuitive user interface enables easy and fast configuration of the data exchange. The modular design offers the greatest possible flexibility to the user since he only has to license the required functionality.

dataFEED OPC Suite with the new Store And Forward functionality will be presented at SPS Smart Production Solutions, November 26-28, 2019 in Nuremberg at the Softing booth in hall 5, booth 5-346.
