By Chantal Polsonetti

Acquisition or Partnership

The Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) and Linaro Ltd, the open source collaborative engineering organization developing software for the Arm ecosystem, announced they have agreed to a liaison to work together to advance their shared interests.  Under the agreement, the IIC and Linaro will work together to promote the digital economy by preventing fragmentation and harmonizing various aspects in the fields of the industrial internet.

A new contributing group will be formed as part of the IIC Liaison Working Group, which is the IIC’s gateway for formal relationships with standards and open-source organizations, consortia, alliances, certification and testing bodies and government entities/agencies.

The contributing group will focus on identifying joint activities that may include identifying and sharing best practices; realizing interoperability by harmonizing architecture and other elements; collaborating on standardization, including input into the 96Boards industrial edition specification; and collecting input on short term roadmaps for Over-The-Air (OTA) updates, Time Sensitive Networking TSN, and trustworthiness.
