Internet and Communications
Middleware And Interoperability

INTECS has a longstanding experience in systems providing services needing interoperability functionality to allow mutual information exchange among participating partners and to gather distributed information to be presented as a unique service for the user.

Such systems make use of XML-based Web Services  standards (HTTP-SOAP based infrastructure) and appropriate ISO/OSI protocols (such as the Z39.50 Catalogue Interoperability Protocol for GEO Spatial Data – supported by CEOS).

Distributed Systems
INTECS participates to the design and development of large distributed systems requiring well-established functions (e.g.: Air Traffic Control Systems) bringing into projects its significant experiences in emerging methodologies and technologies such as MDA (Model-Driven Architecture), CORBA, and the UML 2.0 design language.

Middleware for Fault-Tolerant Systems
INTECS provides solutions based on the CORBA OMG compliant middleware using ORBIX-E/C++.
Furthermore, INTECS is involved in the CORBA-based Middleware Project (CARDAMOM) which includes Fault-Tolerance functionality.

OMG CCM and DDS
INTECS is involved in projects using the latest OMG-CORBA standards such as CCM (CORBA Component Model) and DDS (Data Distribution Service).

TCP/IP protocol suite for Real-Time applications
INTECS has participated to the design and development of a TCP/IP protocol suite for embedded and real time operating systems. This suite includes the TCP, IP, ARP, UDP, and TFTP protocols over Ethernet and has been tested in heterogeneous wide area network.

The principal technologies employed by INTECS is this field are the following:

- CCM (CORBA Component Model)
- DDS (Data Distribution Service)
- ORBIX-E / C++
- XML-based Web Services
- HTTP-SOAP
- Z39.50 Catalogue Interoperability Protocol for GEO Spatial Data
