Standards-Based Real-Time Networking Strategy Leads to RTI's NDDS 4.0

8/30/2005 - Real-Time Innovations, Inc. (RTI), announced the immediate availability of NDDS 4.0, its high performance implementation of the Object Management Group's (OMG's) Real-Time Data Distribution Service (DDS) standard.

NDDS 4.0 has already been running as a beta release at nearly 50 sites in many different mission-critical applications. The general-access release is now available for these sites, as well as for the hundreds of applications currently running NDDS 3.x in military/aerospace, transportation, finance, industrial automation and other industries.

"This release represents the fulfillment of a multi-year strategic plan," explained Stan Schneider, chief executive officer of Real-Time Innovations. "We leveraged our extensive experience in distributed systems to create an optimal, standards-based solution based on proven success. System architects can rely on our mature technology, our experience with hundreds of real-world systems and the security of an accepted OMG standard. Our intention is to provide the highest-performance, most versatile, most proven DDS product on the market."

New Architecture Features
In addition to the new DDS-compliant API, NDDS 4.0 features an advanced architecture that targets a broad array of high-performance, data-critical applications. New objectives and features in the architecture include:

Schneider stated, "As embedded and real-time systems become more distributed, they need to share information between many sources. For many data-critical applications, the ability to deliver the right data to the right place at the right time drives success."

The DDS standard defines high-performance, configurable publish-subscribe networking. It directly addresses the needs of data-critical applications. RTI was the lead author of DDS, and the standard is now building widespread acceptance in many industries. NDDS 4.0 is RTI's premier high-quality DDS implementation.

Price & Availability
The RTI NDDS 4.0 Developer Package is immediately available starting at $46,920 USD for a three-user permanent license. Packages include NDDS middleware, NDDS tools and one year of support. NDDS is available on many operating systems, including Microsoft Windows, Sun Solaris, Linux, LynxWorks LynxOS, Wind River VxWorks and Green Hills INTEGRITY.
