This part of IEC 61162 specifies interface requirements and methods of test for high speed communication between shipboard navigation and radiocommunication equipment as well as between such systems and other ship systems that need to communicate with navigation and radio-communication equipment. This part of IEC 61162 is based on the application of an appropriate suite of existing international standards to provide a framework for implementing data transfer between devices on a shipboard Ethernet network.
This standard provides a higher speed and higher capacity alternative to the IEC 61162-1 and IEC 61162-2 standards while retaining these standards' basic data format. This standard provides a higher data capacity than IEC 61162-3.
This standard specifies an Ethernet based bus type network where any listener may receive messages from any sender with the following properties.
• This standard includes provisions for multicast distribution of information formatted according to IEC 61162-1, for example position fixes and other measurements, as well as provisions for transmission of general data blocks (binary image), for example between radar and VDR.
• This standard is limited to protocols for equipment (Network nodes) connected to a single Ethernet network consisting only of OSI level one or two devices and cables (Network infrastructure).
• This standard provides requirements only for equipment interfaces. By specifying protocols for transmission of IEC 61162-1 sentences and general binary image data these requirements will guarantee interoperability between equipment implementing this standard as well as a certain level of safe behaviour of the equipment itself.
• This standard permits equipment using other protocols than those specified in this standard to share a network infrastructure provided that it is supplied with interfaces which satisfy the requirements described for ONF (see 4.6).
• This standard does not contain any system requirements other than the ones that can be inferred from the sum of individual equipment requirements. Thus, to ascertain system properties that cannot be derived from equipment requirements alone, additional analysis or standards will be required. In particular, this applies to requirements to maintain system functionality in the face of a single point failure in equipment or networks. Informative Annex D contains guidance on how to address such issues.
