Vortex OpenSplice DDSI2 (Data Distribution Service Interoperability) service is part of the Vortex OpenSplice core and provides a fully compliant implementation of the OMG-DDSI/RTPS rev2.1 interoperable wire-protocol standard. Vortex OpenSplice DDSI offers out-of-the-box interoperability with other DDS vendors without any configuration needs. With Vortex OpenSplice DDS v6.x, TCP/IP Support is now provided for use with the DDSI2 networking service.
Vortex OpenSplice DDSI2 can be used both as an alternative as well as in-conjunction-with the optional Vortex OpenSplice RTNetworking service that offers additional capabilities with regard to deterministic communication in large-scale networks.
Vortex OpenSplice also provides an enhanced version of DDSI2 - Vortex OpenSplice DDSI2E, offering security, determinism and scalability enhancements whilst preserving interoperability with other OMG DDSI Rev 2.1 implementations.
Vortex OpenSplice v6.4 introduced TCP/IP based point-to-point communication to DDSI based applications extending the existing standardized DDSI discovery with unicast-locators for use with TCP/IP. TCP/IP is available as part of the Vortex OpenSplice core.
The benefits of TCP/IP support include the following:
- Allows for discovery and communication between DDS participants that are not able to utilize UDP-based (multicast) communication
- Enables WAN-based communication through NAT’s and firewalls
- Excellent scalability based on a single-connection between matched reader/writer endpoints
