Real-Time Innovations (RTI) has released the next generation of its RTI Connext product family. With over 70 new features, the latest release of RTI Connext provides a much more versatile and scalable architecture for developing real-time and embedded applications that use a variety of enterprise integration patterns. The resulting flexibility reduces development, integration and testing costs and enables rapid implementation of new system requirements. 

New features include expanded enterprise integration patterns such as request-reply, which allows applications to receive information on demand, only when they need it. It also supports guaranteed delivery to ensure critical data gets delivered even in the presence of hardware and software failures; and application level acknowledgement, which ensures that critical data is processed completely, even if an application fails after the data was received.

The new version also includes scalability enhancements for better performance across large-scale systems—as the number of subscribers increase, there is virtually no measurable degradation in performance.

Initial support of DDS-XTypes facilitates information model evolution by allowing extensions and changes to existing data types, while maintaining full interoperability between deployed and newly developed systems. This is an important feature for compliance with the Object Management Group (OMG) Data Distribution Service (DDS) standard.

In addition, a new integrated administration console enables users to administer a running system. The new console also illustrates the state of services in applications and systems, allowing for easy reconfiguration across the development, integration and testing phases of a system.

RTI has also announced a new Infrastructure Community (IC) licensing model, which, when combined with the next generation of the RTI Connext product family, offers customers an easy way to adopt common infrastructures within and across an organization to achieve cost, time-to-market and interoperability benefits. 

The next generation RTI Connext product family is available now with U.S. pricing ranging from $1,000 to $3,000 per developer or $500 to $1,500 per processor. Free-of-charge licenses are also available for evaluation and for qualified infrastructure communities, R&D projects and university use.
