The Communication Objectshall be used as the browse entry point for communication related resources of the physical device the Serveris running on. It is formally defined in Table 36.

The Communication Objectis referenced by an Organizes Referencefrom the Resources Objectdefined in 5.4.1.

The Communication Objectmay include the following subfolders:

  • MappingTables
  • NetworkInterfaces
  • Streams

Note: It is recommended to keep TSN-Streams and possible future (DetNet-)Flows separated in specific folders.
