Sunnyvale, Calif. - A healthy fear of writing network is still no reason to hide from it, according to Real-Time Innovations (RTI, Sunnyvale, Calif.), which recently began offering a free online educational series to help users understand networking for distributed, real-time applications.

The first two 45-minute sessions are introductions to two powerful programming capabilities for standard Ethernet networks: multicast and publish-subscribe. There are no commercial interruptions.

Introduction to multicast

Many real-time applications that use Ethernet can benefit tremendously from the protocol's multicast capabilities, which means that one datagram can be received by many nodes on the local network. This seminar explains how Ethernet multicast can be used in practice on local networks. It covers the hardware and software support needed for multicast sending and receiving; mapping of UDP/IP multicast to Ethernet multicast; and problems related to switching/routing multicast (IGMP, GMRP).

Introduction to publish-subscribe

Distributed application developers presently use the publish-subscribe model to simplify and shorten their network programming efforts. This seminar explains how the publish-subscribe model works, and shows how it can reduce network load in comparison to other data distribution models, such as point-to-point and client-server.
