PrismTech debuts Vortex 2.3, its scalable data connectivity offering for integrating device, edge and cloud systems

PrismTech announced Tuesday availability of its Vortex 2.3 Intelligent Data Sharing Platform for the Internet of Things (IoT). This latest version of its data connectivity solution provides the ideal solution for connecting industrial IoT systems.

Vortex 2.3 includes enhancements that simplify the challenge of connecting nodes and sharing real-time data in complex industrial IoT environments that consist of a combination of device, edge and cloud networks.

Vortex 2.3 offers Vortex Cloud and Fog that includes a number of optimizations that simplify deployment, reduce routing latency and improve scalability significantly. The C99 API will be supported by both Vortex Lite and Vortex OpenSplice as of version 6.7.1Vortex now fully supports the Java 8 platform. Google Protocol Buffer (GPB) extensible data types are now supported by Vortex OpenSplice Tuner.

The group coherence support has been added to Vortex OpenSplice Tuner and Tester; Vortex Cafe can now use UDP and TCP transports simultaneously; instance lifecycle support has now been added to Vortex Web, providing access to SampleInfo in Javascript. Vortex OpenSplice includes an open source reference implementation of the Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE) Consortium’s v2.1 Transport Services Segment (TSS) API.

“This latest release of the Vortex platform is the most scalable and user friendly version of the platform to date,” said Andrew Foster, Product Marketing Manager, PrismTech. “We are really pleased with all the improvements that have been made to the product and are sure that our users will see the benefits of our efforts.”

Vortex is based on the Object Management Group’s (OMG) Data-Distribution Service (DDS) standard and builds on proven technologies to provide an efficient solution for real-time device, edge and cloud IoT data sharing. Vortex 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).

Key Vortex capabilities such as automatic discovery, shared memory architecture, configurable QoS framework, and portability of the platform, together enable system-wide scalability and save valuable development time, particularly when integrating legacy systems. With the support of PrismTech’s world-class tooling and professional services, Vortex customers are able to successfully meet stringent development milestones.
