Castle Rock's Twin Oaks partners on international project


Twin Oaks Computing and The Laboratory for Advanced Collaboration (LAC) at the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio) are working together on an international project: ContextNet.

The goal of ContextNet is to get a large number of mobile devices to gather, process, and share information. Users of portable devices (e.g. Android smartphones), vehicles, or moveable gadgets could use this technology to communicate information. These devices would be able to "dynamically discover" each other and share information: automatically "seeing" and "talking" with each other!

The portable devices could be on the same or different operating systems and still communicate: say, some on Linux and others on Windows, or some on Android phones and others on iPads, etc., or some variation / combination of the above. The possibilities are endless!

Working with the LAC for the first time, Twin Oaks Computing supplied the University with CoreDX DDS: the communications software they need to complete this project

CoreDX DDS is being used to build the backbone of the communication infrastructure for the project, which will run via independent users in diverse network domains. This infrastructure will communicate with approximately 30,000-50,000+ mobile devices simultaneously, each of them sending data every 30 seconds.

Currently the ContextNet team is testing the development of this technology. Twin Oaks Computing, Inc. is looking forward to continuing their collaboration with the LAC, advancing communications technologies around the world.

CoreDX DDS is the leading Publish-Subscribe middleware available for small-footprint and embedded systems. Founded in 2005 and located in Castle Rock, Colorado, Twin Oaks Computing, Inc. delivered the first version of CoreDX DDS in 2008. Twin Oaks Computing is a company dedicated to developing and delivering quality software solutions. For more information about CoreDX DDS, visit
