In a recent release, the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC), a professional organization for accelerating the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), and the Internet of Things Alliance Australia (IoTAA) announced they have agreed to a liaison. Under the agreement, the IIC and IoTAA will work together to harmonize various aspects of the industrial internet to help improve the digital economy.


Under the agreement, the joint activities between the IIC and the IoTAA reportedly will include:

  • Collaborating on standardization
  • Realizing interoperability by harmonizing architecture and other elements
  • Aligning work in vertical domains
  • Developing benchmarks for IoT adoption
  • Developing global best practices

“Global alignment and sharing of best practice is critical for realizing the economic benefit of IoT. We are therefore delighted to be working with the Industrial Internet Consortium,” says Frank Zeichner, CEO, IoT Alliance Australia.

“We are excited to begin working with IoTAA on IoT interoperability, best practices, data sharing and more,” says Gary Stuebing, IoT Standards Manager, Cisco, and IIC Liaison Officer, IoTAA. “Working together, the IIC and IoTAA can ensure that IoTAA members have the information they need to help accelerate the adoption of IoT across the Australian economy.”

IoTAA and the IIC have also agreed to meet regularly to exchange information and to hold joint workshops.

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 IoTAA is one of a number of agreements made by the IIC’s Liaison Working Group.
