Data shall be transferred on a Virtual Channel that transfers Packets. Whether a particular
Virtual Channel transfers Packets (and possibly Idle Data) or VCA_SDUs shall be
established by management and static throughout a Mission Phase. CCSDS 132.0-B-1 Page 4-10 September 2003 CCSDS RECOMMENDATION FOR TM SPACE DATA LINK PROTOCOL 188.8.131.52 If Packets are contained in the Transfer Frame Data Field, Packets shall be inserted
