By Ken Briodagh December 06, 2017

In a recent release, Avnu Alliance, the industry consortium for open, standards-based deterministic networking, and the Edge Computing Consortium (ECC), an organization promoting edge computing industry development in the Internet of Things (IoT), have announced a liaison agreement to partner on advancing industrial networking and edge computing. Under the agreement, the consortia will work together with the shared goal for interoperability across the industrial control industry.

Joint activities between Avnu Alliance and the ECC will include:

•           Identifying and sharing IIoT best practices

•           Collaborating on test beds

•           Collaborating on standardization and conformance testing

“We are very excited about the cooperation between ECC and Avnu Alliance,” said Mr. Haibin Yu, Chairman, ECC. “We believe that Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) technology will enable edge computing to better meet the industrial customers end-to-end needs and promote the global industry digitization transformation.”

“Edge computing is a key enabling technology to the industrial IoT. The liaison with the Edge Computing Consortium enables Avnu to broaden the scope for creating an interoperable foundation of Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) for the industrial IoT in alignment with our organization’s goal to build coalitions within the networking space,” said Todd Walter, Industrial Segment Chair, Avnu Alliance.
