Custom Transports for RTI Connext DDS

RTI Connext DDS offers a set of transports built-in to the libraries: UDPv4, UDPv6 and Shared Memory. In addition, RTI offers extension transports: Secure WAN and TCP. These transports are built against the RTI Connext pluggable transports architecture. That is, the core of RTI Connext is transport agnostic; it does not make any assumptions about the actual transports used to send and receive messages. Instead, the RTI Connext core uses an abstract “transport API” to interact with the transport plugins which implement that API.

If you have a custom network or a need for Connext DDS to be used over a special protocol, you can extend Connext DDS with your own custom developed pluggable transport.
