Industrial Internet Consortium, Avnu Alliance Announce Liaison

PRESS RELEASE:

The Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC), the world's leading organization transforming business and society by accelerating the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), and Avnu Alliance (Avnu), a community creating an interoperable ecosystem of low-latency, time-synchronized, highly reliable networked devices using open standards, announced they have agreed to a liaison to work together to advance deployment and interoperability of devices with Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) open standards. Under the agreement, the IIC and Avnu willwork together to align efforts to maximize interoperability, portability, security and privacy for the industrial Internet.

Joint activities between the IIC and the Avnu will include identifying and sharing IIoT best practices, realizing interoperability by harmonizing architecture and other elements, and collaborating on standardization.

"Both Avnu and the IIC are well aligned to pursue the advancement of the IIoT. An example of this is Avnu's participation in the IIC TSN testbed where members have an opportunity to try their equipment and software on the testbed infrastructure. This provides the participants with the ability to discover what's working and what is not and provide feedback that helps speed market adoption," said Gary Stuebing, IIC liaison to Avnu. "The lessons learned in our TSN testbed fuel the ability of both of our organizations. TSN could open up critical control applications such as robot control, drive control and vision systems."

"Our liaison agreement and work with the IIC TSN Testbed demonstrates real-world applications and solutions with TSN and helps to accelerate readiness for the market. The testbed stands as a showcase for the value that TSN standards and ecosystem of manufacturing applications and products bring to the market, including the ability for IIoT to incorporate high-performance and latency-sensitive applications," said Todd Walter, Avnu Alliance Industrial Segment Chair. "Our collaboration with IIC and the work coming out of the TSN Testbed is already having a direct impact on suppliers and manufacturers who see the technology as a value add for their system structure."

Avnu and IIC are meeting for a TSN Testbed plugfest later this month to evaluate and trial TSN device conformance tests that are being developed as a baseline certification in the industrial market.

The IIC 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 Avnu is one of a number of agreements made by the IIC's Liaison Working Group. For a list of current liaisons, click here.
