  • This document focuses on the application of the Ethernet family(IEEE Std 802.3TM-20081) of protocols for usein medical device communication. The scope is limited toreferencing the appropriate Ethernet family specifications and tocalling out any specific special needs or requirements of theISO/IEEE 11073 environment, with a particular focus on easinginteroperability and controlling costs.


    This standard defines a comprehensive set of protocolsconsistent with the ISO/IEEE 11073 and Ethernet family of protocolsfor common use by medical devices in networked operating contexts.By providing this standard, the ISO/IEEE 11073 design goal toprovide real-time plug-and-play interoperability will be extendedto a broad set of network interfaces.
