  3. 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.

  4. Register for the Webcast at: http://www.prismtech.com/webcast-signup Why Attend: * Understand the importance of Data Modeling and taxonomies for the Internet of Things (IoT) * Learn the key techniques for effective and extensible Data Models Design * Learn about the most common Data Distribution Service (DDS) Data Modeling Idioms Abstract: The Internet of Things (IoT) is about extracting and leveraging the tactical and strategic value of data. To do so it is essential that the sub-systems cooperating toward this goal agree on the meaning of data, and can share a “uniform” or at least an “equivalent” representation of data. Without a shared and agreed data model any IoT application quickly becomes an integration bazaar doomed to implode under the weight of layers of translations. Additionally, data models, and in general data-centric architectures, provide a more stable abstraction-barrier than service APIs and service-oriented architectures – the failure of traditional Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) in favor of Resource-Oriented architectures is yet another example of this. Thus, for “data-intensive” systems that are expected to have a long life-cycle, and that require interoperability, such as IoT applications, data-centric architectures are the most natural choice. The Data Distribution Service (DDS), is used as the data-management infrastructure at the foundation of many IoT applications, such as Smart Grids, Smart Transportation, Connected Vehicles and Smart Agriculture. One of the differentiating characteristics of DDS is its support for data- and resource-centric architectures. This webcast will (1) explain the role and scope of data modeling in IoT – with references to the Reference Architecture Model Industrie 4.0 (RAMI 4.0) and the Industrial Internet Reference Architecture (IIRA), (2) introduce the techniques at the foundation of effective and extensible Data Models, and (3) explain how to design effective Data Models for systems powered by DDS.

  9. Vortex OpenSplice provides robust Qualities of Service, including shared-memory capabilities, for developing class of open architecture weapons Boston, MA, USA – May 4, 2016 – PrismTech™, a global leader in software platforms for distributed systems, today announced that its award-winning Vortex™ OpenSplice™ software platform has been selected by WINTEC for its Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) project involving the development of a software architecture for universal plug-and-play of weapons. Existing air-to-ground weapon architectures are generally based on point designs that are unique to individual weapons and / or contractors. These weapons cannot be readily modified or upgraded, or easily reconfigured to different capability levels for cost-effective performance of varying missions. WINTEC is developing a modular open architecture that offers significant promise for alleviating or minimizing such limitations. The new architecture will support the implementation of weapons from various combinations of common functional modules through standard interfaces and associated plug-and-play features for self-discovery and initialization. The technology will facilitate more flexible and cost-effective development and implementation of weapons. It also has significant potential for use in commercial applications such as unmanned vehicle integration and special test equipment. PrismTech’s Vortex OpenSplice enables components – such as sensors, seekers and propulsion systems – within a developing class of weapon architectures to be able to accommodate emerging technologies and allow seamless communication of updated plug-ins. “Vortex OpenSplice is the backbone that is able to connect these major interchangeable components,” said Steve Jennis, Senior Vice President of Corporate Development at PrismTech. “WINTEC is evaluating the DDS benefits that Vortex OpenSplice provides as their project scales and evolves.” To initiate the first phase of this project, WINTEC turned to PrismTech’s open source DDS Community Edition, a version of Vortex OpenSplice high-performance messaging technology designed for small companies and those projects that may not yet require a full complement of services and support. As the project progressed, however, so did WINTEC’s need for Vortex OpenSplice’s advanced capabilities and services. “Thanks to the DDS Community version, we had become very familiar with Vortex OpenSplice and its robust quality of service levels,” said Greg Fountain, President, WINTEC. “We were specifically looking for a DDS based solution with a shared memory capability — and Vortex OpenSplice was our choice.” PrismTech’s Vortex OpenSplice is the leading commercial and open source implementation of the Object Management Group™'s Data Distribution Service for Real-Time Systems (DDS) standard. Vortex OpenSplice has been designed to optimally address the real-time information distribution and management challenges posed by high-performance, real-time data-processing systems. Vortex provides efficient, secure and interoperable internet scale real-time data sharing. It is a key enabler for systems that have to reliably and securely deliver high volumes of real-time data with stringent end-to-end qualities-of-service.

  11. Register at: http://www.prismtech.com/webcast-signup The Cloudy, Foggy and Misty Internet of Things - Towards Fluid IoT Architectures Webcast Why Attend: * Understand the differences between Cloud, Fog and Mist Computing * Learn about the new concept of Fluid Architectures * Learn how to build IoT systems that are fluid and can exploit the benefits of Cloud, Fog and Mist computing Abstract: Early Internet of Things (IoT) applications have been built around cloud-centric architectures where information generated at the edge by the "things" is conveyed and processed in a cloud infrastructure. These architectures centralize processing and decision making at the datacenter by assuming sufficient connectivity, bandwidth and latency. As application of the IoT extends to industrial and more demanding consumer applications, the assumptions underlying cloud-centric architectures start to be violated as, - for many of these applications - connectivity, bandwidth and latency to the datacenter are a challenge. Fog and Mist computing have emerged as forms of "Cloud Computing" closer to the "Edge" and to the "Things" that should alleviate the connectivity, bandwidth and latency challenges faced by Industrial and extremely demanding consumer IoT applications. This Webcast, will (1) introduce Cloud, Fog and Mist Computing architectures for the Internet of Things, (2) explain their applicability with real-world use cases, and (3) introduce the concept of fluid IoT architectures and explain how these can be architected and built using PrismTech’s Vortex platform. The webcast will last approximately one hour.

  20. Smarter Grid Solutions Deploys PrismTech’s Vortex OpenSplice in Active Network Management Portfolio to Deliver More Efficient Power Distribution Solutions Vortex OpenSplice provides high performance, real-time data sharing for next generation smart grid and power management systems PrismTech, a global leader in software platforms for distributed systems, today announced that Smarter Grid Solutions is deploying its Vortex OpenSplice in its Active Network Management product portfolio to deliver more efficient power distribution solutions. Smart Grids are increasingly being seen as a solution for the challenges currently being faced by power companies and utilities, from connecting higher volumes of renewables and low carbon technologies such as electric vehicles and demand response, to finding more economic ways to meet peaks in electricity demand. Smarter Grid Solutions’ patented Active Network Management (ANM) technology can help the power industry overcome many of the technical challenges involved in delivering a smart grid. ANM allows power distribution networks to be managed in real-time, thus maximizing existing infrastructure capacity through active management of power generators and associated network assets. This allows for predictable, efficient power flow through grids, and reliable power for end users. Due to the increasingly distributed nature of power generation, real-time management of these systems is required in order to avoid grid malfunctions. Renewable power is partially responsible for the increasingly distributed nature of power generation, as power distributors seek to take full advantage of it by monitoring real-time changes in demand and matching supply efficiently to meet this demand. To cater for this, Smarter Grid Solutions needed a solution that could provide high levels of real-time data and system scalability to accommodate far greater numbers of generators than is currently possible. PrismTech’s Vortex OpenSplice is the leading (commercial and Open Source) implementation of the Object Management Group's (OMG) Data Distribution Service (DDS) for Real-Time Systems standard. Vortex OpenSplice has been designed to optimally address the real-time information distribution and management challenges posed by high performance real-time data-processing systems. Vortex OpenSplice was chosen by Smarter Grid Solutions as it allowed it to leverage the performance and scalability benefits that are inherent in the product. The extensive quality of service (QoS) support in Vortex OpenSplice helps guarantee predictable and reliable delivery of real-time data, which is vital in energy distribution management. The scalable nature of Vortex OpenSplice enables Smarter Grid Solutions to integrate their network management technology into an increasing variety of energy grids regardless of size. This results in increased efficiency and helps maximize the capacity of current infrastructure. “As a company, Smarter Grid Solutions is proactive in selectively leveraging proven, best of breed technologies and approaches to the design, development and deployment of our industry leading solutions. The increasing penetration of smart Distributed Energy Resources (DER), and associated high dependence upon these network assets means that both innovative and scalable control philosophies are needed in both the near and medium term to enable a whole new raft of service capabilities for energy provision, storage and delivery. Smarter Grid Solutions is increasingly embedding the DDS standard within their product portfolio, both within the platform at the Inter-Process Communications layer and as a key mechanism for real-time data exchange, with intelligent nodes dispersed upon the physical power networks. The provenance of Vortex OpenSplice has been invaluable in the evolution of the ANM Platform and operates at the heart of the company’s mission critical systems, currently deployed in both the UK and North America,” said Neil McNeill, Head of Technology, Smarter Grid Solutions.

Register for the Webcast at: http://www.prismtech.com/events/microservice-architectures-vortex-live-webcast Why Attend: * Understand the key principles of the Microservice Architectural Pattern * Learn how Vortex’s Global Data Space abstraction ideally supports Microservice Architectures * Get started in designing Microservice Architectures though a real-world use case and live code! Abstract: Microservice Architectures — which are the norm in some domains — have recently received lots of attention in general computing and are becoming the mainstream architectural style to develop distributed systems. As suggested by the name, the main idea behind microservices is to decompose complex applications in, small, autonomous and loosely coupled processes communicating through a language and platform independent API. This architectural style facilitates a modular approach to system building. This webcast will (1) introduce the main principles of the Microservice Architecture, (2) showcase how the Global Data Space abstraction provided by Vortex ideally supports the microservices architectural pattern, and (3) walk you through the design and implementation of a microservice application for a real-world use case. The webcast will last approximately one hour.

  25. Register at: http://www.prismtech.com/webcast-signup Why Attend: * Learn how companies are today using the Vortex IoT Data Sharing Platform to build autonomous and connected vehicle systems, * Understand the common data sharing requirements for autonomous and connected vehicles, * Learn about Vortex's features that make it ideal for connected and autonomous vehicles. Abstract: Although Autonomous and connected vehicles may sound somewhat futuristic applications of the Internet of Things (IoT), the reality is that these systems are being built and operated today in special environments. The design of these systems pose some unique challenges due to the constraints imposed by the criticality of the applications and the heterogeneity of the deployment environments. To put it another way, autonomous connected vehicles should not crash into each other, nor into other vehicles, whilst at the same time have to deal with connectivity that changes depending on their location, e.g. connectivity in down-town San Francisco may not be the same as the connectivity experience in the Joshua Tree National Park. This webcast will (1) showcase how PrismTech's Vortex Data Sharing Platform based on the Object Management Group's Data Distribution Service (DDS) standard is used today as the foundation of several autonomous and connected vehicles, (2) summarize the key requirements characteristic of these types of application, and (3) introduce the Vortex features that make it a perfect match for connectivity in autonomous and connected vehicle platforms and applications.
