The Industrial Internet Consortium Establishes Over 40 Liaisons for Industrial IoT

IIC collaborates with global SDOs, technology- and industry-focused- consortia, open source communities, regional organizations and government agencies

NEEDHAM, MA – SEPTEMBER 27, 2018 – The Industrial Internet Consortium® (IIC™), the world’s leading organization transforming business and society by accelerating the adoption of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), today announced it has built 40 relationships with global liaisons. The liaisons include a wide range of organizations spanning standards development organizations (SDOs), open-source communities, technology - and industry-focused consortia and alliances, certification and testing bodies, regional organizations and government entities and agencies.

IIC collaborates closely with liaison partners in a variety of ways that include:

  • Technical exchange such as harmonization of IIoT architectures and exchange of use cases, best practices, results, technical reports and frameworks;
  • Joint marketing activities;
  • Joint workshops;
  • Joint publications

 “The IIC Liaison Working Group is focused on building out the IIoT ecosystem through coalitions that bring organizations together to accelerate the adoption of industrial IoT,” said Wael William Diab, Liaison Working Group Chair, Secretary of the IIC Steering Committee and Senior Director at Huawei.  “The diverse cross-section and volume of liaison partners helps the IIC disseminate requirements and results to the ecosystem as well as collect input from domain experts. The net result is the acceleration of IIoT adoption, the creation of supporting work such as the creation of requirements for standards and best practices and ensuring that the IIC testbeds serve their industries.”

The IIC has organized, co-sponsored or participated in numerous workshops worldwide aimed at advancing IIoT adoption. These have included events with oneM2M, the OSGi Alliance, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the Industrial Value Chain Initiative (IVI), the Robot Revolution & Industrial IoT Initiative (RRI), CAICT, the Alliance of Industrial Internet (AII), the MulteFire Alliance, NEMA, Linux’s EdgeX project, Edge Computing Consortium (ECC) and an international standards workshop on big data.  The workshops enable the IIC and other organizations to collaborate through the exchange of information so we can identify testbeds, whitepapers and other projects to work on in the future.
