PrismTech™, a global leader in software platforms for distributed systems, today announced that its OpenSplice™ DDS product suite has been selected by Atlas Copco to support the company’s latest construction and mining products.

OpenSplice DDS provides real-time data sharing capabilities for the common software platform being deployed by Atlas Copco across its mining product lines. The company is a world-leading manufacturer of underground and surface rock excavation equipment for the construction and mining industry.

“We selected OpenSplice DDS because it provides exceptional performance, scalability, reliability, and operating system availability,” said Tobias Furuholm, Senior Specialist Software Platforms at Atlas Copco. “In addition, it provides important programming language support, including the latest DDS ISO C++ APIs.”

Adding OpenSplice DDS to the common software platform will allow Atlas Copco to achieve greater technology re-use and commonality across products than previously possible. The platform is leveraging COTS (commercial-off-the-shelf) technologies, such as OpenSplice DDS, to help reduce the costs associated with maintaining “in-house” developed solutions. In addition, OpenSplice DDS enables the company to bring new products to market more quickly and further lower operational expenditure by reducing the maintenance burden required to support multiple different platforms.

“We are very pleased that we could provide Atlas Copco with the right data-sharing solution needed to address their technology and business requirements,” said Steve Jennis, SVP Corporate Development, PrismTech. “OpenSplice DDS is a best-in-class technology that is helping customers meet the demanding requirements of next generation distributed systems.”

PrismTech’s OpenSplice DDS is the leading (commercial and Open Source) implementation of the Object Management Group™'s (OMG™) Data Distribution Service (DDS) for Real-Time Systems standard. OpenSplice DDS has been designed to optimally address the real-time information distribution and management challenges posed by high performance real-time industrial and manufacturing systems. OpenSplice DDS sets new levels of performance, robustness, scalability, fault-tolerance and portability (platform support). OpenSplice DDS is a key component of PrismTech’s Vortex™ family of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) enabling technologies.
