THE NTCIP--PROTOCOL DETAILS
In the future, intelligent transportation systems (ITS) will operate under a communications protocol that allows for interoperability and interchangeability of equipment without physical conversion or reliance on a sole vendor. The National Transportation Communications for ITS Protocol (NTCIP)--as it will be known--will use standard communications protocols to address a wide range of system requirements. This article discusses the primary benefits of the NTCIP, the Open Systems Interconnect (OSI) seven-layer model, the transport of data, and communications profiles. A communications profile defines the protocols that are used in each of the seven layers of the OSI model and is important when specifying the requirements for devices that will operate within a system.
