This International Standard specifies the transporting of the Control Network Protocol (CNP) packets for commercial local area control networks over Internet Protocol (IP) networks using a tunnelling mechanism wherein the CNP packets are encapsulated within IP packets. It applies to both CNP nodes and CNP routers.
The purpose of this International Standard is to insure interoperability between various CNP devices that wish to use IP networks to communicate using the CNP protocol.
The main body of this International Standard is independent of the CNP protocol being transported over the IP network. The reader is directed to Annex A and Annex B for the normative and informative, respectively, aspects of this specification that are specific to ISO/IEC 14908-1.
