​The Open Interconnect Consortium (OIC) announced a strategic liaison agreement with the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) to share information that will help streamline interoperability for the Internet of Things (IoT). This technical collaborative between the IoT consortiums is designed to help accelerate the delivery of an industrial grade IoT architectural framework.

Through this formal liaison, the Industrial Internet Consortium will share its use cases and architectural requirements focused on the industrial market. In turn, OIC will ensure that its specification and associated open source project (IoTivity) will deliver the necessary features in an IoT communication framework to meet the requirements and make the use cases easy to implement.

OIC has more than 50 members that include Dell, HP, Siemens, and Honeywell, among others while the Industrial Internet Consortium supports a diverse public-private ecosystem of 141 member companies in 20 countries.
