Blueprint for the Industrial Internet – The IIC Industrial Internet Reference Architecture



intelligence and connectivity are moving into the sensors actuators and devices and applications across energy healthcare manufacturing transportation and more combined with internet protocols fog computing and the cloud we now have the industrial Internet of Things unlike the regular Internet the industrial Internet must meet higher standards of security and safety it must also stand the test of time the industrial Internet needs a common architecture to connect sensor to cloud power to factory and cities to medical services the industrial internet consortium is a group of experts from more than 170 companies and different industries their goal is to build and prove a common architecture that spans sensor to cloud inter operates between vendors and works across industries the industrial internet reference architecture I IRA is an open standards-based architecture for the industrial Internet the IEEE IRA helps achieve interoperability provides technology guidance and advances development of standards the key component of the IEEE IRA is connectivity it includes a core data bus and gateways to other standards the central data bus with gateways connects smart machines together into large-scale intelligent systems this data centric connectivity architecture relies on quality of service to support features such as data delivery timeliness ordering durability life span and fault tolerance security is an inherent part of the architecture because of these important features the connected intelligent systems can perform functions that were never possible before data distribution service DDS is the first open international middleware standard directly addressing publish/subscribe communications for real-time and embedded industrial systems DDS delivers unmatched reliability performance and scalability it is the best data centric or connectivity standard for the IEEE IRA is it really bad if your system fails for a few seconds or even a few milliseconds do you measure latency in milliseconds or microseconds does your system track thousands or even millions of real-time data values or do you need industrial scalability does your system have to last for years if you answered yes to at least two of those questions you need DDS over the last 15 years the DDS standard has been successfully deployed in many real-world systems using architectures like the iír a successful DDS based system designs in production today include the Grand Coulee Dam the largest power plant in North America Siemens wind power the world's largest wind turbine manufacturer GE Healthcare the world's largest medical imaging company NASA's launch control at Kennedy Space Center the world's largest SCADA system outtie a part of the world's largest automaker more than 800 of these system designs are powered by RTI we applied what we learned from our customer successes to the IEEE IRA and can apply them to your industrial internet system on behalf of the industrial internet consortium we invite you to learn more about the IEEE IRA and how to apply it in the real world we are happy to share our knowledge with you you
