Industry IoT Consortium Updates Industrial Internet Reference Architecture

November 15, 2022 – The Industry IoT Consortium (IIC) announced that it had updated its Industrial Internet Reference Architecture (IIRA). The IIRA Version 1.10 addresses the challenges of current industrial IoT systems and industry trends, such as the convergence of IT and OT, digital twins, systems consisting of independent systems, and the inclusion of “non-human” digital users.

“As the industrial IoT becomes common knowledge and widespread across industries, how you architect and update systems remains relevant and evolving,” said Shi-Wan Lin, CTO, Yo-i Information Technology and one of the authors of the framework. “V1.10 of the IIRA improves its utility with new development trends.”

“We updated the framework following feedback from IIC members who have used the IIRA for several years,” said Daniel Young, senior manager at Toshiba America and one of the framework’s authors. “Their proposed refinements reflect their real-world experiences. V1.10 of the IIRA helps practitioners developing industrial IoT systems across industries meet their system requirements.

The fundamental concepts of the IIRA (business, use, functional and implementation) have not changed. However, the IIC has revised and expanded the sections to address how organizations use the views. For example, the new IIRA includes mapping essential industrial IoT functions to system requirements categories. This helps organizations understand which features will best meet their needs.

Another addition to the IIRA V1.10 is a new set of architectural patterns that system designers can use to customize standard system functions and implementations. The IIRA V1.10 also illustrates how system designers can overlap patterns with each other (or with different architectural patterns) to help them build new system implementations from a collection of well-understood models.

The IIC Technology Working Group developed this foundational document. Please download the IIRA Version 1.10 from the IIC website for more information and a complete list of authors.
