Q&A: Kepware Applications Engineers Talk IoT Gateway

Posted by Torey Penrod-Cambra

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.

Check out the Q&A pairs below to learn more about the IoT Gateway for KEPServerEX, which streams industrial data into the Cloud or on-premise solutions for real-time analytics. The Q&A pairs include information on IoT Gateway application support, configuration, functionality, and security.
