Leading manufacturer of industrial networking, computing and automation solutions, Moxa Inc. is now a member of the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC).
A non-profit partnership of industry, government and academia, IIC was formed to accelerate the global use of interconnected devices, intelligent analytics and people. Moxa is one of the first industrial automation companies to join the Consortium.
According to Dr Richard Soley, Executive Director of the Industrial Internet Consortium, Moxa has been a long-time provider of hardened connectivity and networking solutions to industrial users in factory automation, oil and gas, transportation, power, and rail. Moxa's expertise with mission-critical applications and harsh environments will be a valuable asset to the Consortium as the IIC looks forward to their involvement in developing best practices and standards for the Industrial Internet.
AT&T, Cisco, GE, IBM and Intel formed the IIC earlier this year to support better access to data with improved integration of the physical and digital worlds. The IIC is open to any business, organisation or entity with an interest in advancing the Industrial Internet. In addition to gaining an immediate, visible platform for their opinions, consortium members join in developing critical relationships with leaders in technology, manufacturing, academia and the government on working committees.
John Yelland, Vice President of Global Marketing observes Moxa has, for over 25 years specialised exclusively in industrial networking and computing solutions that enable access to critical operational data across the enterprise. He adds the IIC is an exciting opportunity for Moxa and member companies to develop the standards that will maximise interoperability and enable the Industrial Internet to achieve its full potential.
