is a content distribution infrastructure for voluminous data streams.
The substrate places no limits on the size,
rate and scope of the information encapsulated within these streams or
on the number of entities within the system. NaradaBrokering provides
support for the scalable and efficient dissemination of these data
streams. The substrate incorporates capabilities to mitigate
network-induced effects, and also to ensure that these streams are
secure, reliable, ordered and jitter-reduced. All components within the
system utilize globally-synchronized timestamps.
communications in a variety of network realms, NaradaBrokering incorporates support for
several communication protocols such as TCP, UDP, Multicast, HTTP, SSL,
IPSec and Parallel
TCP. Support for enterprise messaging standards such as the Java
Message Service, and a slew of Web Service specifications such as SOAP, WS-Eventing, WS-ReliableMessaging
and WS-Reliability are also available.
Since NaradaBrokering is
application-independent, it has been harnessed in a variety of domains
such as Earthquake Science, Environmental Monitoring, Particle Physics,
Geosciences and Internet based conferencing systems. A comprehensive
list of the projects that harness NaradaBrokering is available on the
