Embedded Insiders Podcast: How the IIC Connectivity Framework Is Like Whales, Seals, and Bats

Many types of animals live on land, many more in the sea, and more still spend their time airborne. What’s that got to do with the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)?

Earlier this year the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) released the IIC Connectivity Framework, a new network model for the IIoT that defines four Core Connectivity Standards: OPC UA, oneM2M, Web Services, and DDS. In this episode, the Embedded Insiders are joined by Dr. Stan Schneider, CEO of Real Time Innovations (RTI), who explains that although connectivity technologies are often known to operate in specific industries, it’s important for designers to evaluate their individual architectures against the system at hand… Sort of like seals and whales in the ocean, or bats in the air.

Apparently Brandon is somewhat like a bat, too.
