PrismTech Announces Vortex, the Intelligent Data-Sharing Platform for the Internet of Things

PrismTech™, a global leader in software platforms for distributed systems, today announced Vortex™, the intelligent data-sharing platform for business-critical Internet of Things (IoT) systems.

Vortex provides efficient, secure and interoperable real-time Device to Device (D2D) and Device to Cloud information sharing. It is a key enabler for systems that have to reliably and securely deliver high volumes of real-time data with stringent end-to-end qualities-of-service (QoS).

Vortex enables an IoT global data space with over 20 configurable Qualities of Service (QoS) to ensure the performance, efficiency and robustness required of business-critical systems. It helps system integrators, OEMs, device platform vendors and Cloud service providers deliver ‘Smart’ solutions for many vertical markets, including: Healthcare, Energy, Transportation, Smart Cities and Industrial Automation.

The Vortex platform includes components to connect mobile devices (Vortex Café), connected sensors and machines (Vortex Lite), Cloud services (Vortex Cloud), browsers (Vortex Web), enterprise systems (OpenSplice™) and existing complementary systems (Vortex Gateway). Any or all of these components can be acquired as part of various Vortex bundles.

The Vortex family comes with a complete set of tools in support of the systems development and management tasks (e.g. for configuring, testing, optimizing, monitoring and recording system behavior) and provides a rich and open API for integration with other IoT application platform technologies (such as IDEs, Java EE application servers or analytics engines for example).

The Vortex product family is planned to be generally available in June 2014. The availability of Vortex will not affect PrismTech’s OpenSplice users other than offering them the upgrade potential of adding Vortex capabilities to their current systems.

“We are convinced the IoT offers distributed systems experts like PrismTech the best growth opportunity in a decade,“ said Steve Jennis, SVP Corporate Development, PrismTech. “As such, we have invested heavily in Vortex over the past several years to be first-to-market with an intelligent data-sharing platform that connects all the end-point applications of an IoT system in real-time: mobile people, smart machines, tiny sensors, enterprise / cloud applications (including data analytics) and legacy applications. Vortex provides the performance, agility and robustness required by business-critical systems, while allowing integrators to exploit the cost and ubiquity benefits of the Internet, the Cloud, smartphones and tablets. OEMs and systems integrators that need to deliver superior end-to-end system performance will greatly appreciate the value-add of the Vortex data-sharing platform and its tools.”

Further information about Vortex will be detailed in a live Webcast delivered by PrismTech's CTO on April 9, 2014. Registration for the Webcast is available at: http://www.prismtech.com/webcast-signup.

Detailed information about the Vortex platform including an interactive demo is available from PrismTech’s website at: http://www.prismtech.com/vortex.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...
The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
