Needham, MA – November 3, 2017 – The Object Management Group® (OMG®), an international, open membership, not-for-profit technology standards consortium, held its quarterly Technical Meeting from September 25-29 at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans Hotel inNew Orleans, Louisiana. The Platform Technical Committee issued an RFP for a Real-time Publish-Subscribe Protocol TCP Platform Specific Model specification.
This RFP is requesting a Platform Specific Mapping of RTPS that would enable OMG Data-Distribution Service™ implementations to take advantage of TCP capabilities.
