The Industrial Internet Consortium announces combination with Openfog Consortium

December 18, 2018 – The Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) and the OpenFog Consortium (OpenFog) announced that they have agreed in principle to combine the two international consortia in Industrial IoT, fog and edge computing.  The move will bring OpenFog members into the IIC organization at a time when their complementary areas of technology are emerging in the mainstream.  

The combined memberships will continue to drive the momentum of the Industrial Internet including the development and promotion of industry guidance and best practices for fog and edge computing.  The organizations expect the details to be finalized in early 2019.  

“This is great news for the industry. Both organizations have been advancing the IIoT, fog and edge computing, and their members represent the best and the brightest in their fields.  It makes sense to merge their expertise and work streams to continue providing the IIoT, fog and edge guidance that the industry needs,” said Christian Renaud, Research Vice President, Internet of Things, 451 Research.

The Industrial Internet Consortium is a membership program transforming business and society by accelerating the Industrial Internet of Things.  The OpenFog Consortium was founded to advance fog computing and address bandwidth, latency and communications challenges associated with IoT, 5G and AI applications.
