Global IoT DevFest III

Core Connectivity Standards, How to Choose


Building out a distributed system infrastructure in today’s emerging Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) landscape means selecting from a sizable list of connectivity and protocol standards. If you’re a developer or system architect, you know many tools and protocols are available to move data around in your distributed application – not to mention the possibility of building out your own custom solution directly on TCP or UDP sockets.

This session details the work done by the Industrial Internet* Consortium (IIC), which recently published its Industrial Internet* Connectivity Framework document. The IIC introduces a specific new network stack, details the requirements for connectivity frameworks in an IIoT system, assesses various standards against those requirements, and suggests four core connectivity standards. We provide a useful summary of their work and offer actionable guidance for making informed choices among the four standards, based on your system requirements.
