Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) organisations jostle for control as industry just gets on with things

The Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) and the Industrial Value Chain Initiative (IVI) – a forum of smart manufacturing for connected industries based in Japan – have announced that they have signed an MoU to work together to align efforts to maximize interoperability, portability, security and privacy for the industrial Internet.

Joint activities planned between the two organisations include sharing use cases and Industrial IoT (IIoT) architecture information, identifying and sharing IIoT best practices for manufacturing, and collaborating on future joint testbed ideas.
