PrismTech Celebrates Anniversary of the Successful Launch of Vortex, the First DDS based Edge-to-Cloud Data Connectivity Platform for the Industrial Internet of Things

An extremely powerful and flexible platform, Vortex enables all IIoT end-point applications to share data in real-time -- sensors, smart machines, enterprise / cloud applications, mobile employees and legacy systems

PrismTech Vortex logoBoston, MA, USA – August 17, 2015 – PrismTech™, a global leader in software platforms for distributed systems, is celebrating the anniversary of the launch of its award-winning intelligent data connectivity platform Vortex™.  Providing device-to-device, device-to-cloud, and cloud-to-cloud connectivity since its entrance into the market a year ago--and well ahead of other industry offerings, Vortex is the first Data Distribution Service (DDS) based edge-to-cloud data connectivity platform for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

Since its very successful launch, Vortex continues to earn numerous analyst and industry awards for innovation.  The list of new customers now relying on Vortex for data connectivity continues to grow and expand within smart grid and energy, transportation, healthcare, IT and networks, and industrial automation markets.

"It's a testament to our team’s technical expertise and ability to address the current and future requirements of the Industrial IoT that we were able to successfully launch an end-to-end data connectivity solution more than a year ahead of the competition," said Steve Jennis, SVP Corporate Development, PrismTech.

Ideally suited for IIoT applications, Vortex is based on the OMG™’s DDS open standard and builds on proven technologies to provide an efficient solution for edge-to-cloud data sharing.  It is a crucial enabler for systems that have to reliably and securely deliver high volumes of data with stringent end-to-end qualities-of-service (QoS); hence its suitability for delivering the right information to the right place at the right time.

Among its key features:

  • Platform independent interoperable solution for Embedded, Mobile and Enterprise environments
  • Device-to-Device, Device-to-Cloud and Cloud-to-Cloud data connectivity
  • Plug and play dynamic discovery for devices and applications
  • End-to-end qualities of service providing superior performance, scalability, reliability, determinism, interoperability, security and network efficiency
  • Operating system and programming language independent
  • Built on Open standards to enable application portability, interoperability and component re-use
  • Seamless integration to legacy and 3rd party applications with support for connectors to over 100 different technologies

Vortex ensures the performance, efficiency, agility, security and robustness required for business-critical systems.  Through Vortex, PrismTech is helping system integrators, OEMs, device vendors and cloud service providers deliver high-performance IIoT system solutions.  Most recently B+B SmartWorx selected Vortex for its next generation of IoT gateways, Harbrick selected Vortex for the world’s first out-of-box operating system for autonomous vehicles, and the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy selected Vortex for the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST), a highly anticipated and revolutionary facility designed to create an unprecedented 3-D map of the universe and unveil the mysteries of dark matter and dark energy.

PrismTech, the first non-founding commercial member to join the Industrial Internet Consortium, has earned numerous accolades from industry and strategic management organizations including designation as a Gartner 'Cool Vendor,' a Sand Hill Group 'Needle Mover' in building the future of the IoT, an IoT Nexus 'Top Power Player' in the Internet of Things, and a Postscapes 'Must-Follow IoT Company.' In addition, PrismTech's Jennis has been recognized as a Top 10 most influential IoT executive.
