An RTPS open source solution

Fast RTPS box200weProsima Fast RTPS is a high performance publish subscribe framework to share data in distributed systems using a decoupled model based on Publishers, Subscribers and Data Topics.

eProsima Fast RTPS is striking fast, beating alternatives such as ZeroMQ and other pubsub middleware in both windows and linux.

The framework generates the Publish/Subscribe code from the topic definition using an Interface Definition Language (IDL) allowing the developer focus in his application logic without bothering about the networking details.

eProsima Fast RTPS is free software (Apache License 2.0) with commercial support available, and built onto standards: eProsima Fast RTPS is a standalone Cpp implementation of the OMG (Object Management Group) RTPS (Real Time Publish Subscribe) wire protocol.
