As the Internet of Things continues to transform businesses and entire industries, key enabling technologies must evolve to address the ever-increasing requirements for these systems. Of particular note is the trend of "fog computing", an architectural design where key functions (typically executed in powerful cloud server infrastructure) are pushed towards the network edge with the goal of making intelligent decisions locally to avoid flooding Internet bandwidth with raw data. Fog computing is made possible by the extraordinary growth of computing power, connectivity, and functional consolidation in traditional embedded devices. These fog computing assets can now scale to "systems of systems" with a layered databus architecture implementation using Data Distribution Service (DDS). However, these architectures generate concerns about security, reliability, and Quality of Service among other things. Join this webinar to learn how Mentor and RTI bring together a solution that enables heterogeneous systems-of-systems while addressing issues critical to strategic and business success.

What You Will Learn

  • Architecting data exchange to support highly scalable systems
  • Using layered databus for data communication across system layers
  • Complete end-to-end security for distributed systems
  • Quality of Service and reliability with DDS
