Industrial Internet Consortium publish Industrial Internet Reference Architecture ver. 1.8

Jan. 31, 2017
The IIRA is a standards-based architectural template and methodology that offers guidance for the development of interoperable IIoT systems, solution and application architectures.

The Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) published version 1.8 of the Industrial Internet Reference Architecture (IIRA). According to IIC, this version builds on version 1.7, originally published June 2015 by incorporating emerging IIoT technologies, concepts, and applications.

The IIRA is a standards-based architectural template and methodology designed by a spectrum of IIC members, including system and software architects, business experts, and security experts, to assist IIoT system architects to design IIoT solution architectures consistently and to deploy interoperable IIoT systems.

“The IIRA, like all IIC deliverables, is a living document,” said John Tuccillo, senior vice president of global industry and government affairs of Schneider Electric and an IIC steering committee chair. “The IIRA and the now the IIRA v1.8 are the first steps toward an open, innovative and thriving technology development ecosystem across industrial sectors.”

The core concepts addressed in version 1.8 are aimed at small, medium and large enterprise in manufacturing, mining, transportation, energy, agriculture, healthcare, public infrastructure and more.

According to an IIC release, system implementers can use the IIRA to shorten system development by deploying reusable, commercially available, or open-source system building blocks to reduce project risk, associated costs, and time-to-market.
