EclipseCon 2023 promises to be what the open-source community has been craving since the pandemic – a big family meeting with new and old friends.
As a company, ZettaScale is committed to open source technology. We are the major contributors of Eclipse Zenoh and Eclipse Cyclone DDS and have been part of the Eclipse family since 2018. Our Zettlers have been active in the community before then.
As a testament to our commitment, we launched our Zetta on the Radio podcast this week. Our inaugural episode is about the role of open source technology in the modern world. It also features an interview with one of our close friends from the Eclipse Foundation, Frédéric Desbiens (Program Manager for IoT and Edge Computing). You can listen to it here.
Going back to EclipseCon, if you’re curious to see which Zettler you can meet there, keep reading. At booth 9, you’ll be able to discuss with (from top left to right):
When talking about ZettaScale’s presence at EclipseCon and unifying communication with Eclipse Zenoh,this year, we’re taking things to the next level. We’re proud to be EclipseCon sponsors and part of the team enabling this event to take place for our open-source community.
As part of our efforts, we decided to dive straight in and prepare several talks for those interested in Eclipse Zenoh and unifying communication, storage and computation from the cloud to the microcontroller.
If you’re new here, you can learn more about Zenoh on our website or watch our Head of Technology, Luca Cominardi, showing you how you can get started with Zenoh below. Since Zenoh is open source, you can install it yourself and test it while following the video.
So, where can you find our team? There are two ways to spot a Zettler in a crowd.
Eclipse Zenoh for IoT Communication On the Stage
On Monday, our Zettlers will be attending the EclipseCon Community Day, and you can listen to the Eclipse Zenoh updates from the project lead and our CEO & CTO, Angelo Corsaro, at 9:45 am in FMZ Präsentationsraum. You can see the official agenda for the Eclipse IoT Community Day on the Eclipse website.
Later on Monday, we’ll also be at the Software Defined Vehicles Community Day (official agenda) hosted by Eclipse SDV, where we’ll introduce Eclipse Zenoh as part of the new SDV projects. We’ll talk about unifying car communication from the MCU to the Cloud. You can find us at 3 pm in the Bürgersaal 2.
On Tuesday, we have two talks in Seminarräume 1 – 3:
- Energy Consumption and Communication Protocols at 2:25 pm. Besides discussing energy efficiency, this presentation will provide an analytic comparison of the most used protocols, such as MQTT, DDS and Zenoh. You can see the abstract on the EclipseCon website.
- Unifying Communication, Storage and Computation from the Cloud to the Microcontroller at 3:10 pm. The goal of this presentation is to introduce Eclipse Zenoh to new members of the Eclipse community. You can see the summary of this talk on the EclipseCon website.
Finally, if you want to discover a new way to scale DDS and MQTT painlessly, listen to our colleague, Phani Gangula (Senior Solution Architect) on Wednesday at 10:10 am in Wilhelm-Krämer-Zimmer room. The abstract of his presentation is on the EclipseCon website.

The real fun starts at our booth!
Live demo with Zenoh for TurtleBot: If you’re new and have just discovered Eclipse Zenoh, come to our booth for a live demo. We’ll showcase the seamless connectivity of devices over the Internet and the ability to bridge diverse protocols, including DDS and MQTT, using Zenoh. Our demo spotlights a Turtlebot that can be remotely operated over the Internet while simultaneously controlled via a Zigbee-MQTT button, all facilitated by Zenoh. If you’re eager to witness the robot’s graceful manoeuvres, we welcome you to our booth.
On the other hand, if you’ve been using Zenoh for some time, come meet our team to learn what is coming up and our plans for 2024. We’d also love to hear your feedback and experience as we’re constantly trying to improve the dragon for our community.
At the same time, we prepared cool merchandise for those brave enough to enter our Treasure Hunt challenge. The rules are simple and you can see them on this page or by scanning the QR code from the challenge card you’ll receive at our booth.
If you’re among the first 10 people to complete the challenge for that day, come back to the booth to claim your Zetta t-shirt and Zetta mug. ZettaScale will soon launch a new line of merch, so you’ll actually be among the first people to get your hands on them!
If you’re not among the first, don’t worry. At the end of the month, we’ll check all the entries and randomly select five people as the big winners. We’ll ship to you a custom Zetta jersey (like our team at the booth is wearing) with your name on the back and our full collection of Zetta merchandise.
