With our recent KEPServerEX version 6.5 release, PTC significantly improved customers’ ability to secure their industrial control systems against today’s cybersecurity threats. And while our security enhancements and tools are important, so are the continuous improvements we made to 32 other server components, drivers and advanced plug-ins.
You spoke; we listened—and today, we’ll tour the updates that ease customer pain points and provide more industrial data access.
KEPServerEX® version 6.4 expands interoperability with a new MQTT Client driver, enhanced system functionality, and new performance features.
As with every KEPServerEX release, our developers spent a lot of time figuring out what users need and how to build solutions that meet those needs today—and into the future. For this product release blog post, we're showcasing the strategic development behind the functionality.
We talked to three Kepware software professionals about what they worked on and their goals for this release. Watch the videos below to learn about how the teams at PTC Kepware created KEPServerEX version 6.4 to optimize your industrial automation and help you overcome data connectivity challenges.
On June 30, Kepware concluded its first installment of the IoT Webinar Series. The series shares breakthrough technology for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), and explores a wide range of solutions made possible by integrating KEPServerEX with IoT Alliance member offerings. Use cases and real-world applications ranged from condition-based monitoring and predictive maintenance to machine learning, overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), and big data analytics.
On November 5, 2015, Kepware’s Erik Dellinger (Product Manager – IoT Solutions) and Joanne Bacharach (Senior Applications Engineer) hosted a webinar that provided a virtual tour of KEPServerEX version 5.19, featuring the new IoT Gateway.
The webinar attendance and engagement were really staggering. In fact, it was the largest webinar in Kepware history, with over a thousand users registered for the virtual event. While Erik and Joanne discussed real-world IoT use cases and provided live product demonstrations, a team of Kepware Applications Engineers worked frantically to respond to the questions and comments that poured in throughout the webinar. We received such great questions that we decided to share the most popular questions (and their responses) with you here.
