ISA100.11a Generic Client Interface Interoperability Test

The ISA100 Wireless Compliance Institute (WCI) announced the November 13, 2012 completion of the interoperability trial to verify its Generic Client Interface (GCI) specification. The GCI is an important component of the ISA100.11a architecture as it defines many of the requirements for ANSI/ISA-100.11a based gateways.

ISA100.11a-- the final, final votes are in-- and it doesn't call for strict interoperability and interchangeability

Well, it's over. Finally. The ISA100 leadership team is packing the .11a standard up and sending it to the Standards and Practices Board for approval...and then on to ANSI, and maybe to IEC.

IF ISA100.11a isn't interoperable, why are we going to vote to release it?

I have become very worried, after reading the ISA100.11a proposed standard draft that is currently out for ballot.
