Unformatted text preview: T CONCERNING THE SPACE DATA LINK PROTOCOLS Transfer Frame associated with the service is transmitted. The transmission timing of
Transfer Frames is determined by the service provider according to mission-specific rules
(which are usually known to the user). The key feature of this service type, which is
essentially time-division multiplexing, is that the timing of data transfer is driven by the
transfer mechanism, not by individual service requests from the user. Thus a particular SDU
from a sending user might be sent once, several times (if the ‘new’ value is not placed in the
buffer soon enough), or not at all (if one value is replaced by a second before the service
provider can send it).
126.96.36.199.4 Periodic Service Periodic service is a special case of synchronous service in which SDUs are transferred at a
constant rate. Periodic transfer from service interface to service interface is provided with a
specified maximum delay and a specified maximum jitter at the service interface. A
synchronous service is periodic if the channel associated with the service (which is either a
Virtual Channel or a Master Channel) transfers SDUs at a constant rate. (Virtual Channels
and Master Channels are logical data channels established over a space link and will be
explained in 4.2 and 4.3, respectively).
For periodic services, all SDUs are sent only once if the sending user supplies SDUs at the
same rate as the rate at which the service provider transfers them.
3.2.5 CHANNELS For each instance of a service, SDUs are transferred over a channel (either a Physical Channel,
a Master Channel, a Virtual Channel, or a MAP Channel (TC-SDLP only)). In addition to the
Virtual Channels and MAP Channels explained in 3.2.3, the Space Data Link Protocols use
Physical Channels and Master Channels. Physical Channels are explained in 2.2. A Master
Channel is a set of Virtual Channels associated with one spacecraft. In most cases, a Physical
Channel has only one Master Channel, but it may consist of multiple Master Channels. For
explanation on how these channels are identified and multiplexed, see 4.3.
