The connectivity you need to control and monitor demanding Industrial IoT systems.
Simplify communication with high level APIs for data sharing, publish-subscribe, request-reply and queuing. Libraries support all major programming languages and operating systems. And even bare metal.
Connect new and existing assets with a fast, scalable and secure integration bus. Easily adapt to disparate protocols. Write apps to a unified API and data model decoupled from underlying devices' native interfaces.
Reduce integration and upgrade costs with modularity and loose coupling. DDS compliant pub/sub provides well-defined interfaces and plug-and-play interoperability between system components. Decentralized for Ultra-High Performance, Scalability and Availability
Apps and devices automatically discover each other and peer-to-peer, including over reliable multicast. No message brokers or servers are required. The result:
• Latency in the microseconds, even with many subscribers
• Throughput of millions of messages per second
• Non-stop availability with no single point of failure
• Autonomous operation with no administration
Seamlessly Share Data from the Edge to the Cloud (and even in the Fog)
Run Over Any Transport: Communicate reliably over any network type and transport protocol, including:
• Shared memory within an intelligent machine
• UDP multicast on a LAN
• TCP or TLS over the Internet
• Non-IP radio or satellite links in the field
Efficiently Route Data: Intelligently bridge data across networks, transport protocols and security domains with RTI Routing Service, a smart software agent. It introspects message contents and only forwards subscribed data. It can also downsample and prioritise data when volume exceeds link capacity.
Deploy Analytics Anywhere: Run analytics and control apps where it makes most sense at the edge or in the cloud. Apps don't change - they are independent of physical proximity and the underlying transport. Easily move intelligence to the edge to process more data with lower latency and greater autonomy.
Portable and Interoperable Product Family

Connext DDS Cert: High-assurance messaging solution for systems subject to stringent safety certifications, including DO-178C Level A. RTI supplies both the software and certification artifacts.
General Atomics had to meet strict requirements for data bandwidth and availability. They could have designed and implemented a custom solution for data integration on their own, but that would have significantly delayed the project. Plus the lifecycle cost of developing and maintaining a custom software solution for a specific project can be enormous.
In research programs, the compute intensity of any specific module cannot be determined ahead of time and is subject to continuous change; the ability of one compute engine to manage its load cannot be determined until runtime. The infrastructure needs to provide clear feedback when communication deadlines are not being met by
connected modules. This requires the ability to rapidly and easily reallocate modules to networked nodes. In other words, modules should be able to be reorganized around the distributed architecture without the time and effort of reconfiguring the underlying network integration. This way, researchers can stay focused on application level issues rather than dealing with system architecture problems created by changes in systems integration.
