The RTI connectivity platform provides the communication between smart devices and subsystems. It monitors and controls physical-world processes and provides the non-stop availability and security essential for mission-critical systems, as well as a rich set of connectivity capabilities optimised for IIoT systems. Moreover, it supports all of the fundamental communication patterns used in the IIoT. Given the long lifecycles of industrial systems, it is well-suited to incremental adoption.
Connext DDS 5.3 is designed to implement a layered databus pattern while also fostering interoperability and an open architecture. It allows sharing data across multiple networks and features new security plugins, interoperable security as well as plug-and-play with systems that incorporate components from multiple suppliers. It also provides the capability to efficiently retrieve historical system data when needed, without flooding the network bandwidth. The software offers seamless device mobility without a loss in connectivity.
