Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC)

The Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) is a non-profit organization created for the promotion of open standards and interoperability for technologies used in industrial and machine-to-machine (M2M) environments.

The Industrial Internet, also known as the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) incorporates machine learning and big data technology, harnessing the sensor data, machine-to-machine  communication and automation technologies that have existed in industrial settings for years. Such environments are expected to rapidly and dramatically increase in number and complexity as the Internet of Things (IoT) expands. However, large numbers of diverse devices -- using various protocols and based on various architectures -- hamper that expansion.

In 2014, AT&T, Cisco, GE, IBM and Intel founded the Industrial Internet Consortium to address those issues. Since then, hundreds of other companies have become members of the open organization. Headquarters for the consortium are in Needham, Massachussetts.
