Vendors Demonstrate Wire-Protocol Interoperability of OMG's Data Distribution Service (DDS)
NEEDHAM, Mass. --(Business Wire)--
member organizations have demonstrated wire-protocol interoperability
between different implementations of its Data Distribution Service for
Real-Time Systems™ (DDS™) standard. The demonstration successfully
showed seamless data exchange under nine different scenarios across
applications running on five independently developed DDS
implementations: EDDS from ETRI (News - Alert) (Electronics and Telecommunications
Research Institute); OpenDDS from OCI, OpenSplice DDS from PrismTech,
RTI Connext™ DDS from Real-Time Innovations, and CoreDX DDS from Twin (News - Alert)
DDS middleware allows distributed applications to communicate with each
other by exchanging and sharing real-time data. The DDS-standard wire
protocol makes direct communication possible between applications
running on different implementations of the DDS standard, providing
adopters with maximum flexibility and vendor independence. DDS
applications can communicate even if they are written in different
programming languages or running on different operating systems or
processor architectures. And because DDS defines standard programming
interfaces, application software is also portable across different DDS
"DDS has been embraced by hundreds of programs and projects to address
their real-time data distribution and application integration
requirements," commented Richard Mark Soley, Ph.D., chairman and CEO,
OMG. "Multi-vendor wire-protocol interoperability reduces integration
costs and increases vendor independence."
"First of all, it is good to hav an interoperability demonstration in
cooperation with other vendors and OMG. We are very happy to finish it
successfully. We wish for DDS to spread out across the business field in
not only the US but also in Korea," said Hyun-Kyu Yu, Senior Vice
"This was the first interoperability demo for OCI. Our engineer was very
appreciative of the group approach to ensuring smooth interactions and
resolution of issues as they arose. Everyone clearly wants a successful
interoperable DDS specification," said Malcolm D. Spence, Director of
Business Development, OCI.
"PrismTech's OpenSplice is one of the few DDS implementations that has
successfully participated to every single interoperability
demonstration," said Dr. Angelo Corsaro, Chief Technology Officer at
PrismTech. "This proves PrismTech's commitment toward open interoperable
standards and technologies, a key element for next generation large
scale system of systems."
"RTI is proud to continue its demonstration in multi-vendor
wire-protocol interoperability with our RTI Connext™ DDS. This software
addresses the communications and interoperability requirements of
complex systems, including an API compliant with the Object Management
Group (OMG) Data Distribution Service (DDS) specification," commented
Dr. Gerardo Pardo-Castellote, Chief Technology Officer at RTI. "RTI is
committed to interoperability as we have seen firsthand the immense
benefits to our customers."
"One aspect of the DDS standard that makes it so unique is the
willingness of the different vendors to come together and demonstrate
our ability to interoperate. With increasing compatibility requirements,
including mission critical and embedded system requirements, continued
interoperability demonstrations show our customers they can build cost
effective, easy to use, robust solutions to their interconnected,
multi-platform challenges of tomorrow; without sacrificing their freedom
to choose the DDS implementation that best suits their needs," said
Clark Tucker, CEO Twin Oaks Computing.
