The Industrial Internet Consortium and OpenFog Consortium have agreed in principle to bring the OpenFog members into the IIC organization so that the Industrial Internet Consortium can continue the progress OpenFog has made toward accelerating the adoption of fog computing. The members of the two international consortia will work together to accelerate the development and adoption of technologies, including fog and edge computing. The organizations expect the details to be finalized in early 2019.
|Industrial Internet Consortium||OpenFog Consortium|
|Mission||To deliver a trustworthy IIoT in which the world’s systems and devices are securely connected and controlled to deliver transformational outcomes.||To drive industry and academic leadership in fog computing architecture, testbed development, and interoperability and composability deliverables that seamlessly bridge the cloud-to-things continuum.|
|Vision||Be the world’s leading organization transforming business and society by accelerating the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).||OpenFog believes that fog architectures will provide the infrastructure that drives the next-generation of applications in IoT, 5G and AI. Our vision for the consortium is to accelerate the deployment of fog in these markets by ensuring interoperable solutions are available.|
|Edge Computing||Fog Computing|
|Distributed computing that is performed near the edge, where the nearness is determined by the system requirements.
The Edge is the boundary between the pertinent digital and physical entities, delineated by IoT devices.
||A system-level horizontal architecture that distributes resources and services of computing, storage, control and networking anywhere along the continuum from Cloud to Things.
