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.

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.”
