New tools for developing slot communications using the GSA's BOB and S2S open standards.

Digital Dynamics Software Inc., an industry leader and expert with gaming communication protocols, will exhibit new gaming development product offerings at the 2005 Global Gaming Expo, September 13-15 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. In the Gaming Standards Association's exhibit, Booth #3691, Digital Dynamics will showcase an innovative BOB to SAS protocol converter and new development tools for the BOB and S2S communication protocols.

Digital Dynamics is well known for its expertise with gaming communication protocols and was a special industry consultant to the GSA in developing the BOB protocol reference implementation. Digital Dynamics created the first BOB EGM simulator designed to aid GSA members in learning and implementing the new BOB slot communication open standard.

The new BOB to SAS protocol converter will enable casinos to quickly leverage all the advantages of the new BOB slot communication standard without having to replace their existing technology running legacy slot accounting communication protocols. The protocol converter acts as a SMIB (smart interface board) to transparently convert gaming communications between a slot machine running SAS and a BOB host server controlling the gaming floor. “Our BOB to SAS protocol converter will enable casinos to quickly integrate and utilize innovative technology into their existing slot floor without requiring the radical wholesale replacement of slot machines they already own.” says Tony Antonucci, president of Digital Dynamics.

For gaming manufacturers developing gaming products using the new Best of Breed (BOB) and System to System (S2S) open standards, Digital Dynamics is demonstrating new data scopes to greatly facilitate software and protocol communication development. The data scopes enable developers to easily capture and analyze the following protocol communication layers: TCP/IP, HTTP, SOAP, and S2S/BOB. The data scopes help engineers easily view and dissect all the communications traffic on the slot floor network. The data display can be refined with filters to focus only on specific data that is desired to be reviewed and analyzed.

The message builder tools for the BOB and S2S communication protocols helps software developers quickly construct and validate gaming communications messages to ensure compliance with the GSA's open standard protocol specifications. Developers can use the point and click message building interface to create a BOB or S2S message and send it to the desired recipient. Combined with the data scopes, developers will have incredibly useful tools to facilitate their BOB and S2S software development and protocol compliance testing.

Digital Dynamics is a technology company with headquarters in Schaumburg, Illinois. The company offers training, professional consulting services, and secure products for industries requiring reliable and secure enterprise class technology solutions with advanced design.
