Building Industrial Internet Solutions with the OPC Foundation
Development of Industrial IoT (IIoT) systems and broad market adoption requires collaboration via the entire ecosystem. Since IIoT is a main technology driver across most vertical industries, it’s never been more important to join forces in developing requirements that become part of standardized specifications and open-source models.

The Industrial Internet Consortium Liaison Working Group and the OPC Foundation will work together to gather requirements for tailoring and extending specifications to address specific industrial internet scenarios.

Join members and guests of the Industrial Internet Consortium and the OPC Foundation for a joint workshop where we will explore:

  • An overview of OPC Foundation and IIC
  • Testbeds
  • Companion specification and collaboration
  • Architectures
  • Connectivity
  • End user requirements
  • Security
  • Networking
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Edge computing
  • Use cases


Speakers include thought leaders from the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) and OPC Foundation.
