Santa Clara, Calif. Real-Time Innovations (RTI) has incorporated Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) support into its RTI data distribution service middleware. RTI data distribution service now allows distributed applications to simultaneously support both IPv6 and the current-generation IPv4, easing migration to the newer standard. IPv6 support is required of all U.S. Department of Defense networks and applications starting in 2008.
RTI data distribution service was designed to allow distributed applications to support multiple underlying transports. This gives system designers the ability to create distributed applications that can operate between different networks, if required. Each application within a distributed system has access to the same shared data, regardless of the network transport being employed. The ability to support both IPv6 and IPv4 in the same application, without any modification to the source code, can result in savings in software development time and effort, while reducing the risk involved in transitioning to IPv6.
