Description: In order to realise the full benefits of the Internet of Things, particularly in industrial settings, there needs to be common protocols to facilitate interoperability and drive the adoption of new business models. One organisation leading efforts globally in this area is the Industrial Internet Consortium. It is a member-driven not-for-profit focused on creating testbeds to test out new technologies. An IIC testbed is a controlled experimentation platform in real world conditions, testing technologies being used in different ways and to discover new business models. Results from testbeds include best practices and requirements for standards, not the standards themselves. This presentation outlines how the IIC works and recent achievements.
