RTI - CONNEXT DDS PROFESSIONAL
For demanding real-time IIoT solutions, Dedicated Systems chooses RTI Connext DDS software. With its interoperability, portability, loose coupling and real-time Quality of Service (QoS), the Data Distribution Service (DDS) is the predominant standard for implementing mission-critical open architecture systems.
Real-time applications, such as aerospace and defence, require the highest levels of performance, scalability, reliability and security. They must also employ a modular open systems architecture to minimise integration, maintenance and upgrade costs, foster reuse and enable rapid reconfiguration for evolving mission requirements. In this regard, RTI provides the standards-compliant connectivity foundation for hundreds of the world’s most mission-critical system designs.
As the leading DDS solution, RTI Connext DDS, provides the most proven and productive environment for developing DDS compliant systems. Offering broad support for programming languages, operating systems, processor architecture and network types, it is ideally suited to integrating everything from sensors at the edge through to track management in the cloud.Read More ...
