The Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) and the Edge Computing Consortium (ECC) sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to partner on their shared interests of advancing the industrial Internet of things (IIoT) and edge computing. Under the agreement, the consortia will work together to maximize interoperability and portability for the IIoT. Joint activities include:
- Identifying and sharing IIoT best practices
- Collaborating on test beds and research and development projects
- Collaborating on standardization
The ECC and the IIC agree to meet regularly to exchange information and have targeted a joint workshop in Beijing on August 30, 2017, for ECC and IIC members to share use case information. The Liaison Working Group is the gateway for formal relationships with standards and open-source organizations, consortia, alliances, certification and testing bodies and government entities/agencies. The agreement with the ECC is one of a number of agreements made by the IIC Liaison Working Group. A list of current liaisons is available on line as well as more information about the Edge Computing Consortium and the Industrial Internet Consortium.
