Title Multimedia home networks - Home network communication protocol over IP for multimedia household appliances
Project Number 21089
Abstract/Scope specifies the requirements for the interface between the Home Network Lower Layer for a country's home network of standalone-type household appliances and the TCP/IP Layer for cases where it is intended to introduce a TCP/IP Layer to each of the nodes comprising such home network of standalone-type household appliances. The specified interface in the Home Network Lower Layer consists of 2 portions, the TCP/IP Interface and the lower medium-specific Interface. Figure 3 shows the composition of the Home Network Layer and the standardized portions. In Annex C, this standard specifies the requirements for the lower medium-specific Interface One of these layers shall be IEEE 802.15.1, short-distance radio standard additional layers can be added in the future).
