Boston, MA, USA – August 18, 2014 – PrismTech™, a global leader in software platforms for distributed systems, today announced that its OpenSplice™ DDS product suite has been selected by Atlas Copco to support the company’s latest construction and mining products.
OpenSplice DDS provides real-time data sharing capabilities for the common software platform being deployed by Atlas Copco across its mining product lines. The company is a world-leading manufacturer of underground and surface rock excavation equipment for the construction and mining industry.
"We selected OpenSplice DDS because it provides exceptional performance, scalability, reliability, and operating system availability," said Tobias Furuholm, Senior Specialist Software Platforms at Atlas Copco. "In addition, it provides important programming language support, including the latest DDS ISO C++ APIs."
Adding OpenSplice DDS to the common software platform will allow Atlas Copco to achieve greater technology re-use and commonality across products than previously possible.
