RTI Wins SIIA CODiE Award for Best IoT Solution 2018

Leading Industrial IoT Connectivity Framework, RTI Connext® DDS Professional, Earns Prestigious Industry Recognition

SUNNYVALE, Calif. –June 19, 2018–  Real-Time Innovations (RTI), the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) connectivity company, today announced that RTI Connext® DDS Professional has been named the Best IoT Solution of 2018 as part of the annual SIIA CODiE Awards. The CODiE Awards recognize the companies producing the most innovative business technology products across the country, and around the world.

Connext DDS Professional is RTI's flagship product and is the first connectivity framework designed to meet the demanding requirements of mission-critical systems in the Industrial IoT. These systems, such as connected medical devices, autonomous vehicles and the smart grid, are mission critical because if they fail for even a second, the results could be catastrophic. In addition, typical IIoT systems require sharing data across multiple networks, such as from the edge to the cloud, as well as with other system components from different manufacturers. Due to the demanding requirements, these IIoT systems have traditionally required custom approaches to data connectivity which are costly and time consuming to build in-house, and are not optimized for scalability. Implementing RTI’s standards-based solution significantly reduces system development, integration and maintenance costs.

The foundation of RTI's connectivity solution is the Connext Databus, a data-centric software framework for distributing and managing real-time data. With the Connext Databus, applications exchange information by simply reading and writing data objects; RTI Connext DDS handles all the underlying complexity including discovery, efficient data routing and failover. Connext DDS complies with the Object Management Group (OMG) Data Distribution Service (DDS) standard to foster interoperability and an open architecture, reducing product development and lifecycle costs.

"The 2018 CODiE Award winners are the most innovative, high-impact products in the market. We are happy to recognize these products and the power they have to transform the future of how we do business," said Ken Wasch, president of SIIA.

"We are truly honored to have been recognized as the CODiE winner for 'Best IoT Solution'," said David Barnett, vice president of products and markets at RTI. "With a history in robotics and autonomy, we designed RTI Connext DDS for the demanding requirements of the world’s most complex, intelligent systems. Our customers are building applications that will forever change our world, such as autonomous vehicles, surgical robotics, flying cars and smart grids. We are proud to be a part of this revolution and to continue offering market leading technology that helps companies accelerate the IIoT."

The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the principal trade association for the software and digital content industries, announced the full slate of CODiE winners during a special Award Ceremony in San Francisco on June 12.
