Unformatted text preview: al Channel in a Physical Channel is identified by a GVCID. Therefore, a Virtual Channel consists of Transfer Frames with the same GVCID. All Transfer Frames with the same MCID on a Physical Channel constitute a Master Channel (MC). A Master Channel consists of one or more Virtual Channels. In most cases, a Physical Channel carries only Transfer Frames of a single MCID, and the Master Channel will be identical with the Physical Channel. However, a Physical Channel may carry Transfer Frames with multiple MCIDs (with the same TFVN). In such a case, the Physical Channel consists of multiple Master Channels. A Physical Channel is identified with a Physical Channel Name, which is set by management and not included in the header of Transfer Frames. The relationships between these Channels are shown in figure 2-2.

The service definitions are given in the form of primitives, which present an abstract model of the logical exchange of data and control information between the protocol entity and the service user. The definitions of primitives are independent of specific implementation approaches. The procedure specifications define the procedures performed by protocol entities for the transfer of information between peer entities. The definitions of procedures are independent of specific implementation methods or technologies. This protocol specification also specifies the requirements for the underlying services provided by the Channel Coding Sublayer and the Physical Layer. 2.2 OVERVIEW OF SERVICES 2.2.1 COMMON FEATURES OF SERVICES The TM Space Data Link Protocol provides users with data transfer services.
