The scope covers integrated management of transportation networks, networking devices and transportation specific equipment attached to NTCIP-based networks. This encompasses previous scopes addressed by other networking management frameworks within the Internet community, including the network management applications. It extends the scope beyond the Internet network management by addressing transportation equipment, networks and transportation management applications.
This includes the structure and identification of transportation information within transportation equipment, the protocols that act on defined information entities and the management applications used for controlling the transportation equipment. An extension to the Internet-standard Network Management Framework, called Simple Transportation Management Framework (STMF), allows for the operation, control, monitoring and configuration of NTCIP networks and the transportation equipment participating on the network. This includes networks utilizing legacy communication mediums such as 1200 bps FSK. This framework also details differences between Simple Transportation Management Framework (STMF) and the original Internet-Network Management Framework.
