1 In order to conserve bandwidth on the space link, some parameters associated with
the TM Space Data Link Protocol are handled by management rather than by inline
communications protocol. The managed parameters are those which tend to be static
for long periods of time, and whose change generally signifies a major
reconfiguration of the protocol entities associated with a particular mission. Through
the use of a management system, management conveys the required information to
the protocol entities. 2 In this section, the managed parameters used by the TM Space Data Link Protocol are
listed for each of the Channels and for Packet transfer. These parameters are defined
in an abstract sense and are not intended to imply any particular implementation of a
management system. 5.1 MANAGED PARAMETERS FOR A PHYSICAL CHANNEL Table 5-1 lists the managed parameters associated with a Physical Channel.
