RTI Connext is network middleware for real-time distributed applications. It provides the communications services that programmers need to distribute time-critical data between embedded and/or enterprise devices or nodes. RTI Connext uses the publish-subscribe communications model to make data distribution efficient and robust.
The RTI Connext Application Programming Interface (API) is based on the OMG's Data Distribution Service (DDS) specification. The most recent publication of this specification can be found in the Catalog of OMG Specifications under "Middleware Specifications".
