RTI announces new technology IIoT incubator

It gives end-users insight and access to experimental and complementary software projects, downloads and tools

RTI customers can gain early access to new technology developed for the IIoT
RTI customers can gain early access to new technology developed for the IIoT

Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) connectivity company, Real-Time Innovations (RTI), is launching RTI Labs, a free programme for customers that provides early access to new IIoT technology.


The mutually beneficial programme, fostering open communication and collaborative efforts between customers and RTI technical teams, gives customers the opportunity to optimise their IIoT systems with advanced technical capabilities and potentially influence the RTI product roadmap.


It gives end-users insight and access to experimental and complementary software projects, downloads, tools, and the chance to provide feedback to RTI engineers and product managers.


The company wants to create a mechanism to share the full range of RTI-developed technologies at various development stages, allowing software developers to increase their knowledge and efficiency when architecting IIoT systems of systems, and to reduce the time, effort and resources spent on creating alternative solutions.


“Our number one priority as a company is going above and beyond in our customer support and relationships, which was the driving force behind the creation of RTI Labs,” said Jan Van Bruaene, vice president of engineering at RTI. “We encourage our customers to engage with our engineers and speak openly about their unique experiences and processes in implementing our products.


“This feedback is invaluable and enables us to continue improving the utility of our products and contribution to our customers’ success. We are proud of the user community we have built at RTI and recognise our users’ impact in solidifying our role as a leader in IIoT connectivity software.”



RTI Labs is launching with three new experimental projects, each of which offers value to customers across markets:

  • RTI Connector for Connext DDS: a quick and easy way to access the power and functionality of Connext DDS from a variety of different scripting languages, such as Python, JavaScript and Lua. It allows developers to leverage these languages, which are often used to create test suites, to simulate incomplete or unavailable system components, and for rapid development
  • RTI System Designer: allows users to graphically configure a system that uses Connext DDS. This includes the topics of data being exchanged, the schema for each and the Quality of Service (QoS) offered by each publisher and required by each subscriber. RTI System Designer enables system architects to design and configure their IIoT systems through a graphical interface and eliminates the need to hand-write textual configuration files. It also provides a guided configuration experience that makes it easy to learn Connext DDS concepts
  • RTI Cloud Discovery Service: provides a discovery mechanism that can be used in environments that do not support multicast, as is sometimes the case with public cloud services and firewalls. In these instances, applications can use RTI Cloud Discovery Service to register their presence and look up their peers. Because the service is only used for discovery and not to broker run-time data exchange, it does not impact system latency, throughput, reliability or resilience.

RTI will be adding additional experimental projects to the program within the next few months, including a feedback mechanism and additional tutorials and videos to support product downloads.
