Brea, California, April 19, 2018—Moxa, a leader in industrial communication and networking, announced that it is actively participating in the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) and will formally join the TSN interoperability testbeds. As part of their ongoing commitment to creating innovative industrial connectivity technologies and solutions, Moxa is collaborating with other industry leaders in the IIC TSN testbeds to rigorously test TSN interoperability and ensure that the developing implementation is stable and reliable before coming to market.
"We are excited to have the industrial Ethernet and networking expertise that Moxa brings to the TSN community. Our customers need an open and interoperable ecosystem of TSN enabled devices. The investments and participation from Moxa in activities like the IIC TSN for Flexible Manufacturing Testbed will help ensure Ethernet switch interoperability,” said Todd Walter, Host of Americas IIC TSN Testbed, and Chief Marketing Manager National Instruments.
"Having Moxa be a partner at the IIC and involved with TSN initiatives and OPC UA technologies is an important step forward in the global harmonization of Industrial IoT connectivity. Moxa brings very valuable knowledge and great products for the vast OPC UA TSN ecosystem, covering all the way from sensor to cloud,” said Stefan Schönegger, Head of Global Marketing at B&R Industrial Automation.
"As part of Moxa’s IIoT initiative, we believe that our investments in technologies like TSN and our strategic alliances with industry partners will allow us to evolve transformative technologies that can benefit businesses and society as a whole,” said Andy Cheng, President of the Strategic Business Unit, Moxa Inc. Andy Cheng continued, “Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) technology is instrumental for realizing the dream of mass customization for the manufacturing industry, and goes beyond reducing overall costs to being able to actually change production on the fly. Participation in the IIC TSN testbeds is a way we can contribute to development of interoperable standards that can expand the possibilities of the IIoT. In the future, Moxa will continue to actively pursue opportunities to help evolve TSN and the smart manufacturing industry.”
