A Deep Dive into the DDS/OPC UA Gateway Specification




Start Date:5/24/2018

Start Time:10:00 AM CDT / 11:00 AM ET

Duration:60 minutes


One of the most important challenges that system designers and system integrators face when deploying complex Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) systems is the integration of different connectivity solutions and standards. At RTI, we are constantly working to accelerate the Industrial IoT revolution. Over the past few years, we have developed standard connectivity gateways to ensure that DDS systems can easily integrate with other core connectivity frameworks.

This year, we developed a standard OPC UA/DDS Gateway, a bridge between two of the most well-known Industrial IoT connectivity frameworks. We are excited to announce that the gateway was just adopted by the Object Management Group (OMG).

In this webinar, we will dive deeper into the importance of choosing a baseline core connectivity standard for the Industrial IoT and how to ensure all system components are fully integrated. Attendees will also learn:

How the OPC UA/DDS Gateway specification was developed and how it works

How to leverage the Gateway to enable DDS and OPC UA applications to interoperate transparently

About the first standard connectivity gateway released with RTI Web Integration Service in Connext DDS 5.3

Gateways are a critical component of system interoperability and we will keep working to help companies accelerate Industrial IoT adoption.

Dr. Gerardo Pardo-Castellote, Chief Technology Officer, RTI

Gerardo Pardo is CTO at RTI, he has been with the company since it was founded, held various positions in research, development, consulting, and became the CTO in 1998.

Gerardo was the main developer of the original versions the RTI Connext DDS product line. He started this work while still working on his Ph.D. at Stanford and carried on the product at RTI.

Gerardo leads RTI's standardization efforts and he is the main author of the OMG Data Distribution Service Standard (DDS), the OMG Real-Time Publish-Subscribe (RTPS) Protocol standard, the DDS Security Standard, and many of the other (currently 7) DDS-related standards. He also chairs the OMG revision task forces for these standards.

In 2005 Gerardo founded and still co-chairs the Data-Distribution SIG within OMG. This is the group that oversees the DDS standard family. In 2009 he was also elected to the OMG board of directors where he still serves.

Prior to joining RTI, Gerardo worked in distributed sensor systems and robotics at CERN (Switzerland) and HP Labs in Palo Alto California.

Gerardo is considered an expert on security, middleware, and publish-subscribe systems. He has been the Principal Investigator on more than a dozen research grants, including SBIR and ATP grants, has authored five patents and over 50 technical papers, journal articles, and conference sessions on the topic of real-time and secure distributed systems.

Gerardo completed his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and an MS in Computer Science both at Stanford University. He also holds a BS and an MS in Physics from the University of Granada (Spain) and he was awarded the National 1st Prize Physics award.
