The Z-Break solution uses a variety of communication protocols. HTTP, OPC-UA, IEEE 802.15.4e and IEC WirelessHART. The Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) is an application protocol for distributed, collaborative, hypermedia information systems. HTTP is the foundation of data communication for the World Wide Web. OPC UA supports two protocols. The binary protocol is opc.tcp://Server and http://Server is for Web Service. Otherwise OPC UA works completely transparent to the API. IEEE 802.15.4 is a technical standard which defines the operation of low-rate wireless personal area networks (LR-WPANs). It specifies the physical layer and media access control for LR-WPANs, and is maintained by the IEEE 802.15 working group, which defined the standard in 2003. WirelessHART is a wireless sensor networking technology based on the Highway Addressable Remote Transducer Protocol (HART). Developed as a multi-vendor, interoperable wireless standard, WirelessHART was defined for the requirements of process field device networks. Also, it uses the NGSI protocol. NGSI is a protocol developed to manage Context Information. It provides operations like managing the context information about context entities, for example the lifetime and quality of information and access (query, subscribe/notify) to the available context Information about context Entities.
