Register for the Webcast at: http://www.prismtech.com/webcast-signup Why Attend: * Understand the challenges posed by environments constrained in computational, memory, power and network capabilities * Understand the short comings of existing technologies in these environments * Learn how the upcoming standard DDS for eXtremely Resource Constrained Environments (XRCE) addresses these challenges * See a demonstration of XRCE in action Abstract As a result of the commoditization of computing and communication technologies, an increasing number of sensing and controlling devices, appliances and gadgetware are now digitalized and connected. In most of the cases these devices, due to cost and/or power constraints are limited with respect to the computational, storage, networking and energy constraints. Most of the standard technologies for messaging and data sharing were designed for environments that did not have these limitations. As a consequence, these standards don’t deal nicely with devices that undergo aggressive sleep cycles or communicate through constrained network such as LoWPAN and LPWAN. To fill this gap, over a year ago, we started a standardization process at the Object Management Group named DDS for eXtremely Resource Constrained Devices (XRCE) with the intent of filling this gap. DDS-XRCE targets environments where devices may have very little computational power and memory, such as an Arduino Uno which has 2 Kbytes of SRAM and 32 Kbytes of FLASH, may be battery powered and may communicate through constrained networks such as 40-100 Kbps LoWPANs and the newly standardized NB-IoT. From a high-level perspective, the key requirements that a DDS-XRCE implementation has to satisfy are (1) extremely low footprint – addressing targets such as an Arduino Uno platform, (2) extremely efficient wire protocol – inducing a protocol overhead of just a few bytes over the user data, and (3) support devices that undergo aggressive sleep cycles. This webcast will (1) introduce PrismTech’s proposal for the DDS XRCE standard, (2) demonstrate analytically its extremely low wire overhead, (3) demonstrate XRCE in action and (4) explain how it compares with competing proposals.

Data Sharing in Extremely Resource Constrained Environments Webcast June 22 2017 Register for the Webcast at: http://www.prismtech.com/webcast-signup Why Attend: * Learn about the key requirements and challenges of effective data collection and sharing in resource constrained environments * Understand why existing protocols are ill suited to address these constrained environments * Learn about an upcoming standard that is defining the most wire-efficient and feature rich protocol available yet and get a chance to influence its future Abstract: Recent innovations in Low-Power Wireless Personal Area Networks (LoWPAN) and Low-Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN) are enabling connectivity for a large class of applications that previously could not afford the cost of or the power implications. These innovations in networking have not been matched by innovations in the higher-level protocols used to collect/share data. As a result, applications that leverage these low-power networks are often crafting custom messaging layers. DDS-XRCE (DDS for eXtremely Resource Constrained Environments) is an upcoming standard that aims to provide a zero-cost high level data-sharing protocol for these constrained environments. This webcast will explain the unique technical challenges introduced by constrained environments and (1) explain why existing standards are seldom applicable, (2) introduce DDS-XRCE and explain how it optimally addresses constrained environments, and (3) provide a comparison with existing constrained protocols such as CoAP.

  11. Significant new features and Apache license version 2.0 make it ideal for projects needing a leading edge open source implementation of the Data Distribution Service Download the DDS Community software at: http://www.prismtech.com/dds-community/software-downloads PrismTech, a global leader in software platforms for distributed systems, today announced the release of the open source DDS Community Edition v6.7. This new release adds significant new functionality and a new open source licensing model to the DDS Community Edition, the leading open source implementation of the Object Management Group®'s (OMG®) Data-Distribution Service™ (DDS™) standard. The DDS Community Edition v6.7 is being released to the open source community under the widely adopted Apache license, version 2.0 source code license. Unlike many other code licenses the Apache license places relatively few restrictions on the use or availability of the code. The new DDS Community Edition v6.7 introduces many new features compared to the previous release including: Durability: Full support for TRANSIENT_LOCAL durability is now offered without relying on each standalone ‘single-process’ application to include a full durability-service (DS). As typically a DS is run as part of a federation (note that federations are currently not supported by the community-edition), we have introduced the concept of ‘client-side durability’ where standalone ‘single-process’ applications will transparently obtain historical (TRANSIENT and/or PERSISTENT) data from dynamically discovered durability-services (as provided by our commercial OpenSplice version) DCPS API’s: Support for the latest ISOCPP and JAVA5 DCPS language bindings FACE: This release includes a reference implementation of the FACE 2.1 Transport Services Segment (TSS) GPB: Support to use Google Protocol Buffers (GPB) as an alternative to the OMG-IDL definition for topic-types. GPB is a popular technology that supports evolvable data-types and we’ve added annotations for key- and filterable-fields to retain the data-centric features of DDS. Note that this support does not break interoperability with other DDS-vendors as it transparently wraps the GPB contents in to a DDS-container (with related generated IDL) which can be read by any DDS-implementation available. The added-value is in making this process fully transparent and thus allowing application-developers to share GPB-based topics and exploit the generated GPB getters / setters code to access the GPB attributes (i.e. without being exposed to any IDL mappings whatsoever) The new release also includes numerous other updates to the code base such as: performance and footprint improvements, bug fixes, robustness and maintainability improvements. “DDS has been witnessing incredible growth in adoption across a large number of application domains, culminating in its recommendation as part of virtually all Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) Reference Architectures,” said Angelo Corsaro, CTO, PrismTech / ADLINK Technology. “With DDS Community Edition v6.7 we are making available the most advanced DDS implementation on the market under the liberal open source license — Apache license version 2.0. This will help reduce the IoT adoption barriers and further accelerate the penetration of DDS in this new and exciting market.” The latest DDS Community Edition v6.7 open source software can be downloaded from PrismTech’s website at: http://www.prismtech.com/dds-community. For customers needing a fully commercially supported DDS product, PrismTech also offers the Vortex™ OpenSplice™ product suite, for further details please visit: http://www.prismtech.com/vortex/vortex-opensplice.

  15. Register for the Webcast at: http://www.prismtech.com/events/dds-security-standard-webcast Why Attend: * Learn about the recently finalized DDS Security standard * Understand the DDS security model and the mechanisms that support-it * Learn how the DDS Security standard can be used to secure your systems Abstract: Historically, communication security standards have addressed the creation of a secure channel between two parties, where one of the two plays the role of the client and the other the role of the server. While a secure channel is a key building block for implementing a secure distributed system, it is simply a transport-level abstraction, as a consequence applications or other infrastructural layers have to provide additional higher level abstractions to manage information security. The Data Distribution Service (DDS) Security Standard disrupts this tradition by raising the abstraction level and providing an information-centric security model. This high-level information-centric security model is supported by a modular security framework that allows for pluggable authentication, crypto, access control and logging. Additionally, the security protocol provides support for efficient group communication while retaining important properties such as non-repudiation. This webcast will (1) introduce the recently finalized DDS Security standard, (2) explain in depth the DDS security model and the mechanisms that support it, and (3) showcase how the DDS Security standard can be used to secure your systems.
