IPC Committee Selects Communication Transport Protocol for Connected Factory InitiativeAugust 4, 2017 | IPC
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
The IPC 2-17 Subcommittee has voted to use the Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP) as the transport protocol for machine to machine communication as part of the Connected Factory Initiative (CFX).
AMQP is an open standard application layer protocol for message-oriented middleware, with toolkits available on all major platforms. It boasts a fully symmetrical communication and supports both publish/subscribe and request/response communication patterns. On top of that, its advanced security features are greater than both MQ Technology Telemetry Transport (MQTT) and Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP). Overall, it is a robust and stable protocol with commercial critical messages delivered daily.
“Due to the dedicated work of our volunteers, we have managed to determine a transport protocol to be used to help us support Industry 4.0 requirements,” said Nancy Jaster, Manager of Design Process at IPC. “AMQP can be used to solve issues today, as well as leveraged to take care of future needs.”
The subcommittee will now begin the task of defining the “building blocks” for the data definition. This team will be led by Michael Ford, European Marketing Director at Aegis Software Corporation. There will be a face-to-face meeting for CFX at IPC’s Standard Development Committee Meetings at the Rosemont Convention Center in Rosemont, IL on Monday, September 18.
