Interop Asia

The Asia OPC Interoperability Workshop (IOP) 2017 in Tokyo will be hosted again this year by the TIME24 Building. This workshop is "the" event for testing OPC products for interoperability and preparing them for market. Vendors can test and debug their products against one another for interoperability, compliance and reliability. IOP workshops also provide an ideal opportunity to network with your peers, learn about OPC technology.

Interoperability Workshops are open to OPC Foundation member companies only.

Space is limited to 60 attendees, so register now!


This workshop will be operated by OPC Foundation Japan.


Test & Debug in a Real-World Environment

The Interoperability Workshop is a “must attend” event for anyone preparing their OPC UA products for market. Test and debug your applications while running against dozens of other vendor products in a real-world environment including Windows, Linux, and Embedded devices. The 2016 IOPs were very successful, with several members reporting that it was "extremely valuable" in preparing their products for release.


Challenge “Stress” Test

This year’s IOP will see the return of the Challenge Test, in which multiple OPC clients and servers will be stress tested with thousands of tags/nodes per connection, concurrently during network connectivity losses.

Products that successfully pass the Challenge Test are ideal candidates for OPC Foundation lab certification.


Available OPC Technology For Testing

  • OPC Unified Architecture (UA) - Windows, Linux, Embedded


Provided Infrastructure For Testing

  • Local Area Network consisting of a standard CAT5 Ethernet cable
  • Internet access
  • Web-based application providing Test suggestions and for recording test results

17:00 finish.


Day 1 am

We will start with network configuration, followed by certification configuration for UA. A "share" partition on the file server can be used to exchange files if necessary.

For the rest of the morning

  • All Servers have to be specified by means of a Web-based entry-form (Entrypoint and general properties, supported optional interfaces, and supported NodeIds. This data will go into the test database and will be available for the clients as test data.
  • Clients will also use Web-based entry-forms to find available servers, view their properties, select them for testing, and fill in test results, etc.

Day 1 pm to Day 3 am

These three days will be available for general testing. Every client has to perform an IOP test with every server of different vendors. Web-based forms will show the status with respect to available servers and clients.

Each client vendor has to enter the test results for each tested server into the database (web-based again). The database will be available to all participants at the end of the workshop.

Some of us will be available to help resolve general problems (Certification trust, network, specification ambiguities)

Day 3 PM

The challenge time is held.

Finally we complete the database with all results and making the results available to you. The workshop will end by 17:00.
