The digital Twin as well as protocol standard like OPC UA, MQTT or even IO-Link play a big role within Industrie 4.0 and the Industrial Internet. This presentation decribes the business role of the digital twin for manufacturers of automation equipment and machine builders implementing new, digital business models. Existing protocol and device standards help significantly in the implementation of such business models. The relationship between IO-Link, OPC UA, MQTT etc. and the digital twin are discussed in the example of sensor-cloud connectivity solutions.
