An OPC tunneling solution includes the Kepware connectivity platform with the OPC UA Client driver. The OPC Unified Architecture (UA) open standard is used to provide an ideal tunnel for device communications between two instances of Kepware: one instance that functions as the tunnel client and another instance that functions as the tunnel server. The OPC UA Client driver pairs with the UA Server interface of Kepware to transfer data securely and reliably.
The tunneling solution uses a client/server architecture for secure and reliable real-time data tunneling through firewalls and across the internet, WAN, or LAN. It also allows for easy remote communications between devices, data sources, and applications by eliminating the reliance on Microsoft COM and DCOM technology.
