At Hannover Fair 2017, Real-Time Innovations (RTI) will present its connectivity platform for real-time applications designed for the demanding requirements of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). As a member of the Industrial Internet Consortium, RTI can be met at the IIC Pavilion in hall 8, booth C24.

The RTI connectivity platform provides the communication between smart devices and subsystems. Connext DDS is designed to address the performance, scale and resilience requirements of the IIoT. The middleware delivers the low-latency and real-time QoS needed to monitor and control physical-world processes. Furthermore, it provides the non-stop availability and security essential for mission-critical systems, as well as a rich set of connectivity capabilities optimized for IIoT systems, such as messaging libraries, an adapter framework and powerful tools.

Unlike a traditional database, Connext DDS is a completely decentralized software data bus. The connectivity platform 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. The scalable, reliable and secure integration bus connects new and existing assets. RTI Connext DDS provides order-of-magnitude performance and reliability advantages over most other messaging and integration middleware on every supported platform.

Connext DDS complies with the Object Management Group (OMG) Data Distribution Service (DDS) for Real-Time Systems standard. It supports both the DDS application programming interface (API) and network interoperability protocol (DDSI-RTPS). DDS is the only messaging standard designed specifically to meet the requirements of timing-critical systems. It can deliver over 50 times the performance of IT standards such as JMS, MQTT, AMQP, XMPP and Web Services.
