Jointly organized by the Industrial Internet Consortium, Plattform Industrie 4.0, VDMA, and ZVEI, the forum will feature several demonstrations. There, you’ll see a Time Sensitive Networking testbed demonstration, a joint security demonstration between the Industrial Internet Consortium and Plattform Industrie 4.0, and a security claims evaluation testbed.
