The FdtProtocolType and its sub-types are used to specify a communication protocol that is supported by a Device or Network. The BrowseName of each instance of a ProtocolType shall define the Communication Profile (see OPC UA for Devices 6.3).

OPC UA for FDT uses a sub-type FdtProtocolType (see 7.7) for mapping the needed information.
