time Quintuple

Bidirectional?: False

time (A-Interconnect): This CVRIA application interconnect encapsulates all of the Layer 2 information flows between the 'SM Time Synchronization' application object and the 'Network Time Source' physical object. In this case, there is only a single Layer 2 flow associated with this interconnect, so the Layer 1 application interconnect name and the Layer 2 information flow name are both 'time'. This application interconnect is uni-directional since the underlying layer 2 information flows go from 'Network Time Source' to 'Service Monitor System'.

Network Time Source (Source Physical Object): The 'Network Time Source' represents the external time source the Connected Vehicle Service Monitor System uses as the basis for time. This is likely implemented as a Stratum-2 Network Time Server that is 2 steps removed from a basic time source (e.g., atomic clock).

Service Monitor System (Destination Physical Object): The 'Service Monitor System' represents one or more center-based systems that provide monitoring, management and control services necessary to other applications and/or devices operating within the Connected Vehicle Environment. These support services enable other applications to provide transportation services.

SM Time Synchronization (Destination Application Object): "SM Time Synchronization" provides the functions necessary to receive accurate time from an external Network Time Server and provide that Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) as Time Local Form to other center systems and field devices.
