The FDT Group has been instructed by its Board of Directors to fully enable the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) architecture. Built upon the rock solid FDT® standard, new initiatives will support mobility, on-the-wire security, and comprehensive interoperability.

While we work towards our goal of an “out-of-the-box” IIoT architecture, we turn to experts in the industry to help lead the way. FDT is a member-driven organization and we encourage members to get involved and participate in the many different technical and marketing working groups. These groups offer an opportunity to share your expertise; network with industry peers; gain early insight to technology direction, marketing strategies, and implementations; and much more.

Share your expertise and join FDT Technology project groups.
