Under the distribution agreement announced today, Soft Service will distribute and support PrismTech’s market leading OpenSplice™ Data Distribution Service (DDS) and Spectra™ Software Defined Radio (SDR) products within Japan.

OpenSplice DDS is the leading (commercial and Open Source) implementation of the Object Management Group™'s (OMG™) Data Distribution Service (DDS) for Real-Time Systems standard. OpenSplice DDS has been designed to optimally address the real-time information distribution and management challenges posed by high performance real-time systems.
