Base Standards and Profiles 2 (BSP2) Working Group

The Base Standards and Profiles 2 Working Group (BSP2 WG) is responsible for the development and maintenance of NTCIP standards that are:

 

  1. Subnetwork profiles, which provide the rules and procedures for exchanging data over a single physical communications link by referring to one or more base standards; or
  2. Base standards, which define procedures and rules for providing the fundamental operations associated with communications and information that is exchanged over fixed-point communications links; or
  3. Global objects, which identifies and defines objects that may e supported by multiple device types.

 

Note: The Base Standards and Profiles 2 Working Group (BSP2 WG) resulted from merging three, prior Working Groups: An original Base Standards Working Group merged with the Profiles Working Group (in 2003), and subsequently the Global Objects Working Group merged (in 2005). The resulting Working Group is designated as the BSP2 Working Group.

 

The BSP2 Working Group is currently chaired by Doug Crawford, Intelight.

Published Standards

NTCIP 1102:2004, Octet Encoding Rules (OER) Base Protocol

NTCIP 1120:2004 defines a base standard for encoding rules that are to be used in conjunction with Application Layer protocols defined in separate standards. Published October 2005.

 

NTCIP 1103 v03, Transportation Management Protocols

NTCIP 1103 v03 defines a composite application layer protocol for the management of transportation equipment. The Transportation Management Protocol (TMP) specifies an NTCIP Application Layer service. The composite protocol consists of three component protocols: the Internet-standard Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), the Simple Fixed Message Protocol (SFMP), and the Simple Transportation Management Protocol (STMP). The protocols are concerned with the procedures for exchanging information as well as the format in which the information is exchanged, and each of the three protocols provide the same base services, but are designed with different needs in mind. Includes exception-based (event-driven) reporting. Published December 2016. Supercedes NTCIP 1103 v02.

 

NTCIP 1201 v03, Global Object (GO) Definitions

NTCIP 1201 v03 identifies and defines object definitions that may be supported by multiple device types (e.g., actuated signal controllers and dynamic message signs) that are NTCIP-conformant. The messaging between the Transportation Management Center and field devices is accomplished by using the NTCIP Application Layer services to convey requests to access or modify values stored in a given device; these values are referred to as objects. Published March 2011. Supercedes NTCIP 1201 v02.

 

NTCIP 2101:2001, Point to Multi-Point Protocol Using RS-232 Subnetwork Profile

NTCIP 2101:2001 defines a subnetwork profile that is a combination of standards intended to meet specific requirements for data transfers to and from roadside devices in either a networked or direct-connect environment. Published November 2001.

 

NTCIP 2102:2003, Point to Multi-Point Protocol Using FSK Modem Subnetwork Profile

NTCIP 2102:2003 provides the definition of an NTCIP Subnetwork Profile. It defines requirements for the data link and physical layers of a communications stack based upon the OSI Basic Reference Model. It also contains optional and conditional clauses that are applicable to specific environments for which they are intended. Published September 2005.

 

NTCIP 2103 v02, Point-to-Point Protocol over RS-232 Subnetwork Profile

NTCIP 2103 v02 defines the rules and procedures for using the point-to-point protocol over RS-232 like circuits and a subnetwork profile that is a combination of standards intended to meet specific requirements for data transfers to and from processors in direct-connect or circuit-switched environments. The purpose of NTCIP 2103 v02 is to provide the information necessary to establish a connection using the Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) via an RS-232 interface and/or a dial-up modem. Published December 2008.

 

NTCIP 2104:2003, Ethernet Subnetwork Profile

NTCIP 2104:2003 defines a subnetwork profile that provides connection-oriented, acknowledged connectionless, and unacknowledged connectionless data link service. At the physical layer, it provides specifications for peer-to-peer access over coaxial cable, twisted pair wire, or fiber-optic medium. Published September 2005.

 

NTCIP 2201:2003, Transportation Transport Profile

NTCIP 2201:2003 defines an NTCIP Transport Profile. It defines requirements for the transport and network layers of a communications stack based upon the ISO-OSI Reference Model. Published September 2005.

 

NTCIP 2301 v02, Simple Transportation Management Framework (STMF) Application Profile (AP) (AP-STMF)

NTCIP 2301 v02 defines an application profile (AP) that is a combination of standards intended to meet specific requirements for information management and information transfers to and from transportation devices in a networked environment. As an NTCIP application profile, the scope covers the application, presentation, and session layers of the OSI Basic Reference Model. Published July 2010.

 

NTCIP 2302:2001, Trivial File Transfer Protocol Application Profile

NTCIP 2302:2001 defines an application class profile that is a combination of standards intended to meet specific requirements for a simple block or file transfer mechanism to and from roadside devices in a networked environment. Its scope covers the application, presentation and session layers of the OSI Reference Model. Published December 2001.

 

NTCIP 2303:2001, File Transfer Protocol Application Profile

NTCIP 2303:2001 defines an application profile that is a combination of other profiles intended to meet specific requirements for reliable file transfers in a networked environment, and it specifies a set of protocols and standards for the application, presentation, and session layers of the ISO – OSI Reference Model. Published December 2001.

 

NTCIP 8003:2001, Profile Framework

NTCIP 8003:2001 is applicable to traffic control and transportation related devices which must operate in an Integrated Transportation System. This standard develops the terminology, content, structure, and organization of standardized profiles. Published December 2001.
