The Device Topology reflects the communication topology of the Devices. It includes Devices and the Networks. The entry point DeviceTopology is the starting point within the AddressSpace and is used to organise the communication Devices for the top level Networks that provide access to all instances that constitute the Device Topology ((sub-)networks, devices and communication elements).

The DeviceTopology node is formally defined in Table 42.
