Object Management Group Issues DDS C# API Request for Proposal
Interoperable API to increase DDS deployments in new applications and industries

NEEDHAM, MA – JANUARY 29, 2020 – Today, international technology standards organization Object Management Group® (OMG®) has issued a request for proposals (RFP) for a new C# API for the Data Distribution Standard (DDS) . OMG issued the DDS C# API RFP because DDS users and vendors alike need an interoperable API for the C# programming language. The new API will enable the deployment of new, vendor-neutral applications in a variety of industries.

Data Distribution Service (DDS™) is an OMG middleware protocol and API standard for data-centric connectivity that is widely used in business and mission-critical Internet of Things (IoT) applications because of its low latency, high reliability and scalability. The DDS specification uses a model-driven approach and relies upon APIs to map applications to specific programming languages, such as Java and C++.

"The use of standard frameworks and ecosystems is crucial in the development of next-generation industrial IoT systems. DDS provides a set of standard APIs that enable users to develop portable vendor-independent applications using their programming language of choice," said RFP author Fernando Garcia Aranda, Principal Software Engineer at Real-Time Innovations (RTI). "In this RFP, we aim to define a standard C# API for DDS. We believe this new API will facilitate the development of a new array of DDS applications that are compatible with the .NET ecosystem, expanding the use of DDS to new domains within and beyond the Industrial IoT."

The DDS C# API Request for Proposal is open to the public. The deadline to respond with a letter of intent, that a company is interested in responding, is March 19, 2020. Responses are due by May 18, 2020. The full request and details on how to respond can be found in the RFP.
