The IIC and the ECC to Work Together

The Industrial Internet Consortium and the Edge Computer Consortium (IIC and ECC) signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to partner on driving computing at the edge of the network. The IIC says that the three pillars of the agreement will be to identify and share IIoT best practices, collaborate on test beds and research and development projects, and work together on standards.

Analytics firm SAS and CSA, a global testing and certification company, both recently joined the IIC.

The consumer Internet of Things (IoT) is a great thing. It helps us stay fit; increases the IQ of our homes, buildings and cities; and empowers everything from alarm clocks to cars. It is destined to grow and, if security and standards issues are solved, thrive.

The use of the same basic technology in commercial, industrial and other complex and dense environments, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), eventually could be even more impactful. Grandview Research predicted this spring that the global value of the IIoT will reach $993.62 billion by 2025. The value of the sector exceeded $100 billion last year and has a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of more than 25 percent, according to the report.

Grandview says that businesses want to merge operational and information departments of their organizations. Doing so, the report suggests, will “increase the overall productivity, enhance operational efficiency, improve visibility, and reduce the complexities of different processes in the industry."

Cost reduction to date has been the main driver of adoption. Other contributors are the emergence of ancillary and complementary technologies, including low-power hardware devices, the cloud, Big Data analytics, robotics and automation and smart sensors. Let’s look into the interesting world of the IIoT.
