Moxa, a leading manufacturer of industrial networking, computing, and automation solutions, announced their membership in the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC). The IIC is a non-profit partnership of industry, government and academia formed to accelerate the global use of interconnected devices, intelligent analytics and people. Moxa is one of the first industrial automation companies to join the Consortium.

"Moxa has been a long-time provider of hardened connectivity and networking solutions to industrial users in factory automation, oil and gas, transportation, power, and rail," said Dr. Richard Soley, Executive Director of the Industrial Internet Consortium. "Moxa's expertise with mission-critical applications and harsh environments will be a valuable asset to the Consortium. We look forward to their involvement in developing best practices and standards for the Industrial Internet."

AT&T, Cisco, GE, IBM and Intel formed the IIC earlier this year to support better access to data with improved integration of the physical and digital worlds. The IIC is open to any business, organization or entity with an interest in advancing the Industrial Internet. In addition to gaining an immediate, visible platform for their opinions, consortium members join in developing critical relationships with leaders in technology, manufacturing, academia and the government on working committees.

"Moxa fully supports the mission of the IIC," said John Yelland, Vice President of Global Marketing for Moxa. "For over 25 years, Moxa has specialized exclusively in industrial networking and computing solutions which enable access to critical operational data across the enterprise. The IIC is an exciting opportunity for Moxa and member companies to develop the standards that will maximize interoperability and enable the Industrial Internet to achieve its full potential. We look forward to this collaboration and pledge our full support."
