  • Messaging Protocols

    Discover the most important Messaging Protocols proposed as the Foundation of the next generation of Internet of Things and Industrial Internet applications.

  • What are the Benefits of DDS?

    Implementations of the Data Distribution Service DDS standard have many benefits including easier development of distributed systems, portability, interoperability, scalability, reliability, high performance, reduced costs, vendor and language independence.

  • What is Middleware?

    Middleware in a distributed system is the software layer that lies between the operating system and applications and enables the various components of a system to communicate and manage data.

Industry Initiatives

  • Fog Computing

    Fog Computing has recently emerged as the paradigm to address the needs of edge computing in Internet of Things (IoT) applications.

  • Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE)

    The Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE™) Consortium is taking a leadership role in developing open standards for avionics systems of the future so helping to make military aviation computing operations more robust, interoperable, portable and secure. We provide an Open Source (LGPL) FACE 2.1 Transport Services Segment (TSS) Reference Implementation for developers to use with the Data Distribution Service standard.

  • Industrial Internet

    The definition of the Industrial Internet (sub-segment of the Internet of Things (IoT) includes two key components: 1/ the connection of industrial machine sensors and actuators to local processing and to the Internet, and 2/ the onward connection to other important industrial networks that can independently generate value.

  • Industrial Internet Reference Architecture

    The Industrial Internet Reference Architecture (IIRA) is a standards-based open architecture defined by the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC). Its objective is to have broad applicability to drive interoperability, map applicable technologies and to guide technology and standards development.

  • Internet of Things

    The IoT and the rise of a M2M ecosystem have long been anticipated. As this ecosystem converges with trends like cloud computing and big data, businesses need to be prepared to address the new wave of connected intelligent devices and harness the data that comes with them.

  • M2M

    Early M2M applications have typically sent all remote data to the data centre for processing. However, as more data is generated at the edge in real-time, a greater need for real-time decision making also at the edge will be required. This will then need more real time data analysis at the edge.
