According to a recent announcement, The Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) and the 5G Alliance for Connected Industries and Automation (5G-ACIA) will advance their shared interests by working to enable interoperability, prevent fragmentation, and in particular to maximize synergies of 5G for the Industrial Internet.

Areas of alignment and harmonization reportedly include use cases and scenarios, requirement modeling and specification, networking best practices and architecture patterns, technology co-existence and interworking, connectivity and communications security. Joint activities will happen between the organizations on leadership level to ensure complementary approach and identify synergies, as well as on concrete deliverables targeting the mentioned areas of mutual interest.

“5G represents a key technology for the factory of the future and for achieving unprecedented levels of flexibility, versatility and productivity,” said Andreas Müller, Bosch, and Chairman of the 5G-ACIA. “We are excited to work more closely together with the IIC and to make sure that the different building blocks coming out of the two organizations seamlessly fit together. Only through such concerted actions it will be possible to unlock the full potential that 5G can bring to the factory floor.”

“Networking is a key enabler of Industrial IoT, and with the emergence of 5G, we have a versatile platform to support many industrial use cases,” said Jan Höller, Ericsson, and IIC Liaison Officer to 5G-ACIA. “We’re delighted to work with 5G-ACIA on wireless connectivity to further enable digital transformation across industries.”
