PubSub+: A Core Messaging Foundation for SWIM

System-wide information management (SWIM) is the mission-critical foundation of air traffic control systems, and the key to strategies being driven by the FAA, ICAO and EUROCONTROL.

Critical to an efficient SWIM system is a robust messaging layer that will enable reliable and performant communication amongst the variety of applications, systems, equipment and devices that compose the SWIM ecosystem.

Solace enables global SWIM systems with PubSub+, a family of event brokers that route real-time aeronautical, flight and weather data, along with data feeds like TFMS, between aircraft, Global ATM systems and all kinds equipment, sensors and users.

Solace supports NextGen ANSP modernization with PubSub+, industrial strength event brokers that enable reliable and real-time data movement across distributed SWIM systems.

Why PubSub+

PubSub+ enables diverse systems to publish information and services, request and receive information when they need it, and subscribe for automatic receipt. This ensures that airspace users and controllers always have timely information about situations that affect their area of responsibility, while reducing infrastructure costs, by decreasing the number of unique interfaces between systems.

Industrial Strength
  • Provides 99.999% reliability, guaranteed delivery, fault tolerance
  • Supports low latency, high availability, disaster recovery
  • Supports WAN optimization, fan-in/out
Flexible
  • Natively supports open APIs and protocols (AMQP 1.0, MQTT, REST, JMS, WebSocket)
  • Supports multiple message exchange patterns (pub/sub, queuing, req-reply, streaming)
  • Runs natively in public clouds (AWS, Azure, GCP), private clouds and on premises
  • Supports hybrid cloud, multi-cloud, event-driven and microservice architectures
  • Available as interoperable appliances, software, and as a service
Scalable
  • Provides elastic scalability to support connections with tens of millions of end-points
  • Buffering and burst-handling enable system shock absorption
  • Intelligent filtering and routing capabilities support scalability

Unlocking the benefits of ANSP Modernization with PubSub+

A flexible and robust messaging layer can unlock a variety of benefits for modernizing ANSPs

  • Reduced time and effort to introduce new services to the system, without disrupting existing ones
  • Easy automation of the real-time collection and distribution of a variety of information (flight, weather, surveillance, aeronautical data) to a wide range of stakeholders
  • An improved ability to handle large variability in the amount of data and the number of end points the system at a given time
  • Simplified third party access to select data feeds (can now get many data feeds with a single connection using standard protocols like JMS, AMQP and MQTT
  • Better interoperability, locally and globally, with other ANSPs through SWIM
  • Industrial strength reliability and performance
