Company Description

The Industry IoT Consortium is the open membership, international not-for-profit consortium that is setting the architectural framework and direction for the Industrial Internet. The IIC is focused on driving technology innovation that fosters business development. We help organizations identify best technology practices, build credible brands, and transform their businesses.

Founded by AT&T, Cisco, GE, IBM and Intel in March 2014, the consortium’s mission is to coordinate vast ecosystem initiatives to connect and integrate objects with people, processes and data using common architectures, Interoperability and open standards.

From its inception, the IIC was driven by our mission to accelerate the adoption of the Industrial IoT. We achieve this through a combination of seminal best-practices frameworks and cutting-edge testbeds that test out new technologies and business models in new ways.

IoT Solutions

The Industry IoT Consortium was founded in March 2014 to bring together the organizations and technologies necessary to accelerate the growth of the Industrial Internet by identifying, assembling and promoting best practices. Membership includes small and large technology innovators, vertical market leaders, researchers, universities and government organizations. Industrial Internet Consortium Working Groups coordinate and establish the priorities and enabling technologies of the Industrial Internet in order to accelerate market adoption and drive down the barriers to entry.

There are currently 19 Working Groups and teams, broken into 7 broad areas:

• Business Strategy and Solution Lifecycle

• Legal

• Marketing

• Membership

• Security

• Technology

• Testbeds

These groups are comprised of Industrial Internet Consortium member company representatives. Member companies can assign an unlimited number of individuals to the Working Groups, which follows the one vote, one company rule. Testbeds are a major focus and activity of the Industrial Internet Consortium and its members. The Testbed Working Group accelerates the creation of testbeds for the Industrial Internet and serves as the advisory body for testbed proposal activities for our members. It is the centralized group which collects testbed ideas from our member companies and provides the members with systematic yet flexible guidance for new testbed proposals.

Our testbeds are where the innovation and opportunities of the Industrial Internet – new technologies, new applications, new products, new services, new processes – can be initiated, thought through, and rigorously tested to ascertain their usefulness and viability before coming to market.
