RTI Earns Frost & Sullivan's 2019 Global Product Leadership Award

Leading Industrial IoT Connectivity Company Named Product Leader in the Healthcare Market

SUNNYVALE, Calif. – March 12, 2019 – Real-Time Innovations (RTI), the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) connectivity company, today announced that the company was awarded the 2019 Global Product Leadership Award by leading analyst firm, Frost & Sullivan. RTI was named the Global Product Leader for IIoT connectivity in the healthcare market, recognized for its innovative technology, customer-focused approach and market leadership.

This prestigious recognition is based on extensive and ongoing analysis of global IIoT connectivity in the healthcare industry, conducted by Frost & Sullivan analysts. The analyst report noted that as the number of connected devices continues to grow, the importance of data interconnectivity within the healthcare ecosystem will only increase further. In a healthcare environment, medical systems must process critical information faster and more accurately to achieve better patient outcomes. The only way to do that is to connect devices and algorithms so they can share data and cooperate. This environment enables complex systems, such as medical robotics, medical imaging equipment and smart patient monitors to operate as a single unified system while laying the foundation for a connected healthcare ecosystem. The key to connected healthcare is a fast, flexible connectivity architecture. Frost & Sullivan realizes that this technology will drive the future of connected healthcare.

For the Global Product Leadership Award, Frost & Sullivan independently evaluated two key factors: product family attributes and business impact. The report states, "Frost & Sullivan believes that a company cognizant of both broader industry trends and on the ground customer challenges is well-positioned to achieve market leadership. Through exceptional product quality and commitment to innovation, Frost & Sullivan independent analysis concludes that RTI meets these challenges to deliver the best customer value."

RTI's flagship product, Connext® DDS, is the first connectivity framework designed for demanding IIoT requirements. Based on the Data Distribution Service (DDS) standard, RTI's software streamlines connectivity across a complex architecture of systems. It is deployed in thousands of mission-critical systems including autonomous vehicles, wind power systems, surgical robotics, naval ships, unmanned aircraft and more. DDS is specified by several leading industry standards, such as ICE (Integrated Clinical Environment), AUTOSAR (AUTomotive Open Systems ARchitecture), ROS (Robotic Operating System) and Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE™). Connext DDS also offers a safety certification pathway to reduce risk, time and project costs.

In healthcare, RTI's connectivity framework enables modern healthcare IIoT systems with the industry's first medical-grade connectivity software. Connext DDS connects systems of distributed devices and intelligent algorithms to enable around-the-clock connected care, faster emergency response and reduced medical errors. 

"GE Healthcare is leveraging the RTI Connext DDS-based architecture to connect medical devices, edge-based analytics as well as mobile and wearable instruments," said Matt Grubis, Chief Engineer for Mobile Digital Health Solutions at GE Healthcare.

"Frost & Sullivan is one of the world's top analyst organizations. We are grateful to receive its 2019 Global Product Leadership Award," said Stan Schneider, CEO of RTI. "We are honored to be recognized for our expert team and our market-leading technology. But we most appreciate Frost & Sullivan's recognition of our dedication to customers. RTI’s inspiring customers take on the world’s most challenging intelligent distributed systems. To make their investments to improve future healthcare, our customers must trust RTI's critical infrastructure. We accept that responsibility very seriously. The principle of earning their trust guides our software, our expertise, our innovation and our core values. Healthcare will look very different—distributed, intelligent and better—in just a few years. We are proud to help our customers truly make hospitals safer, care teams more effective and the world a better place."
