Industrial Internet Consortium, EdgeX Foundry Announce Liaison

The Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC), an organization dedicated to accelerating adoption of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), and EdgeX Foundry, an open-source project building a common interoperability framework to facilitate an ecosystem for IoT edge computing, have announced that they have agreed to a liaison. Under the terms of the agreement, the organizations will work together to align their efforts to maximize interoperability, portability, security and privacy for the industrial Internet.

Joint activities between the IIC and EdgeX Foundry will include identifying and sharing best practices, collaborating on test beds and experimental projects, working toward interoperability by harmonizing architecture and other elements, collaborating on common elements and periodically hosting joint seminars. "We are excited about working with EdgeX Foundry," said James Clardy, EdgeX Foundry's IIC liaison, in a prepared statement. "And we look forward to leveraging the experiences of the IIC to help further accelerate the adoption of the industrial Internet."

"EdgeX Foundry's primary goal is to simplify and accelerate Industrial IoT by delivering a unified edge computing platform supported by an ecosystem of solutions providers," said Philip DesAutels, The Linux Foundation's senior director of IoT, in the prepared statement. "Formalizing this liaison relationship with the IIC is fundamental to unlocking business value at scale. Together, we will provide better best practices that will drive the unification of the industrial IoT."

The agreement is among many made by the IIC Liaison Working Group, which provides a gateway for formal relationships with standards and open-source organizations, consortia, alliances, certification and testing bodies, and government entities and agencies.
