Push data from your SCADAPack RTU using MQTT Protocol
The SCADASuite MQTT application lets you push data from a SCADAPack RTU (Remote Terminal Unit) to the cloud using the MQTT (Message Queue Telemetry Transport) protocol.
Unlike traditional SCADA protocols, like Modbus, MQTT lets you push data from the field device to the host. This allows for efficient use of the communications channel, and also let's you capture data immediately after it changes, instead of waiting for the next poll.
Using MQTT allows you to collect high resolution data from your industrial processes to drive advanced analyses like Machine Learning.
MQTT allows you to collect data directly from your SCADAPack RTUs, bypassing operational systems like SCADA, and breaking down silos within your organization.
MQTT implements lightweight publish/subscribe messaging transport and is mainly used in Machine to Machine (M2M) or Internet of Things (IoT) applications.Reasons to Use MQTT
Instead of the poll-response mechanism used in traditional SCADA, MQTT allows data to be pushed to the host on the back of an event, thus allowing you to capture changes without high polling rates.
MQTT data is pushed to a broker first and multiple systems can then subscribe to this data. This allows your data to be used by multiple consumers, increasing operational efficiency.
