Physical Standards

Document NumberTitleDescription
ISO 21217Intelligent transport systems –– Communications access for land mobiles (CALM) –– ArchitectureISO 21217 describes the communications reference architecture of nodes called "ITS station units" designed for deployment in ITS communication networks. While it describes a number of ITS station elements, whether or not a particular element is implemented in an ITS station unit depends on the specific communication requirements of the implementation. It also describes the various communication modes for peer–to–peer communications over various networks between ITS communication nodes. These nodes may be ITS station units as described in the document or any other reachable nodes. ISO 21217 specifies the minimum set of normative requirements for a physical instantiation of the ITS station based on the principles of a bounded secured managed domain.
