New ways to connect with AVEVA Communication Drivers 2023

AVEVA™ Communication Drivers bring you the communication backbone you need to integrate IIoT and edge data, maintain uptime, and simplify communications configurations across your entire system. As a part of AVEVA Operations Control 2023, communication expands to include even more drivers to keep you connected.

What’s New in AVEVA Communication Drivers 2023

MQTT Sparkplug publisher

AVEVA™ System Platform was already a consumer of Sparkplug data, but in 2023 it expands to include a Sparkplug publisher based on MQTT for enterprise systems and cloud services. The new publisher is easy to configure and requires no engineering changes to the underlying application.

MQTT publisher import/export

Export and import publisher configuration files so engineers can ingest bulk-generated configuration sets or backup and restore the publisher configuration.

OPC UA Reverse Connect

Enhancements to OI Gateway include new security policies. Reverse Connect enables communication with servers behind strict firewalls and server-side whitelisting of client connections.

Deprecation of Device Integration (DI) objects

In the 2023 release, AVEVA System Platform provides a migration path from legacy DI objects to the latest OI Server technology with minimal reconfiguration and no need to refactor IO references.
