The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), which represents the manufacturers and suppliers of communications networks, and the Internet of Things (IoT) Community, the world’s largest and longest-standing global independent IoT Community, are forming a partnership to further the development of the IoT and smart buildings.
They will extend their work into other areas though and have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to collaborate on a set of initiatives in manufacturing, connected vehicles, intelligent transportation, healthcare as well as buildings.
The two organisations will share commercial, technical, and standardisation insights and explore opportunities for collaboration on technologies, exchange information and expertise, and develop solutions to accelerate the development of the Internet of Things.
“Harnessing the power of the Internet of Things is essential for the successful development of smart buildings and eventually smart cities,” said Harry Smeenk, TIA’s senior vice president of technology programmes.
TIA and the IoT Community will work together to share information, discuss, and explore technologies related to smart buildings, the Internet of Things, and other areas of interest. They aim to develop and share training content related to the Internet of Things and the various initiatives.
"The IoT and IIoT edge and the associated opportunities and challenges are top of mind with today’s corporations and end users"
Additionally, the organisations will work to educate industries on the role of the Internet of Things in buildings, collaborate on events, and share relevant research and expertise.
Nancy Shemwell, chief operating officer of the IoT Community, said the IoT and IIoT edge and the associated opportunities and challenges are top of mind with today’s corporations and end users.
She added: “Ensuring a smooth and secure implementation of these mass evolving technologies is key. Capitalising on the capabilities of both organisations and their unique areas of thought leadership is of tremendous value to the overall industry.”
