The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), an association representing the manufacturers and suppliers of high-tech communications networks, and the Internet of Things Community (IoT Community), a global independent IoT Community, recently announced an agreement to accelerate the digital transformation of the Internet of Things and further the development of smart buildings.

The two organizations reportedly have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to collaborate on a set of initiatives regarding smart buildings, manufacturing, connected vehicles, intelligent transportation, healthcare and more. They will share commercial, technical, and standardization insights and explore opportunities for collaboration on technologies, exchange information and expertise, and develop solutions to accelerate the development of the Internet of Things.

“Harnessing the power of the Internet of Things is essential for the successful development of smart buildings and eventually smart cities,” said Harry Smeenk, SVP, Technology Programs, TIA. “TIA looks forward to working with the IoT Community to enhance the development of the Internet of Things and enable the digital transformation of smart cities and smart buildings.”

“The two organizations complement each other beautifully,” said Nancy Shemwell, COO, Internet of Things Community. “The IoT and IIoT “edge” and the associated opportunities and challenges are top of mind with today’s corporations and end users. Ensuring a smooth and secure implementation of these mass evolving technologies is key. Capitalizing on the capabilities of both organizations and their unique areas of thought leadership is of tremendous value to the overall industry.”

TIA and the IoT Community will work together to share information, discuss, and explore technologies related to smart buildings, the Internet of Things, and other areas of interest. Pursuant to that goal, they will develop and share training content related to the Internet of Things and the various initiatives. Additionally, the organizations will work to educate industries on the role of the Internet of Things in buildings, collaborate on events, and share relevant research and expertise.


The IoT Evolution Expo, and collocated events, IoT Evolution Health, LPWAN Expo, The Smart City Event, and IIoT Conference, will take place Jan. 29 to Feb 1 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Visit IoTEvolutionExpo.com to register now.
