La CEI 62480:2008 spécifie les exigences applicables aux caractéristiques de l'adaptateur de réseau proprement dit ainsi que celles de l'interface entre l'adaptateur de réseau et l'équipement prêt pour connexion au réseau. Les données échangées entre l'adaptateur de réseau et l'équipement prêt pour connexion au réseau correspondent fondamentalement à celles de la Classe 1 de systèmes électroniques domotiques (HES). La présente version bilingue (2012-08) correspond à la version anglaise monolingue publiée en 2008-05.

FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization

comprising all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to

promote international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic

fields. To this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical

Specifications, Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as

“IEC Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee

interested in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and

non-governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates

closely with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined

by agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an

international consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation

from all interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated

in the latter.

5) IEC provides no marking procedure to indicate its approval and cannot be held responsible for any equipment

declared to be in conformity with an IEC Publication.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard IEC 62480 has been prepared by technical area 9: Audio, video and

multimedia applications for end-user network, of IEC technical committee 100: Audio, video

and multimedia systems and equipment.
The text of this standard is based on the following documents:
FDIS Report on voting
100/1354/FDIS 100/1389/RVD

Full information on the voting for the approval of this standard can be found in the report on

voting indicated in the above table.

This publication has been drafted in accordance with the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

The committee has decided that the contents of this publication will remain unchanged until

the maintenance result date indicated on the IEC web site under "http://webstore.iec.ch" in

the data related to the specific publication. At this date, the publication will be

• reconfirmed,
• withdrawn,
• replaced by a revised edition, or
• amended.
A bilingual version of this publication may be issued at a later date.

INTRODUCTION

There are several obstacles to the spread of networked appliances that can be overcome by

the concept of a Network Adapter described in this standard. As Home Networking technology

is rapidly evolving, network functions which are pre-installed in home electrical appliances

can easily become obsolete and may be difficult to upgrade. Many appliances strictly limit

resources such as the CPU, power capacity, and memory to achieve cost savings. If all

network functions are embedded in Home Networked appliances, this could result in a higher

cost for new appliances and an additional barrier to wide adoption of such systems. In

addition, when consumers want to add a new appliance to the network, they are forced to

choose equipment with the same interconnecting systems as the existing network or add a

router or gateway which can interconnect different systems.

To solve these problems, the network functions are divided into two parts. Since functions

from OSI layer 1 to 7 (refer to ISO/IEC 7498 in Bibliography) are necessary to network home

electrical appliances (including both multimedia equipment and household appliances such as

televisions, computers, refrigerators, washing machines, and sensors), network functions from

OSI layer 1 to 6 and most of layer 7 reside in an external Network Adapter and only a small

part of layer 7 resides in the home appliances.
The advantages of applying this standard are:
• Users can upgrade a Home Network by simply changing the Network Adapters.
NOTE For example, when an end-user wants to have higher QoS media.

• An electrical appliance without embedded network functions can be connected to an

existing Home Network with a Network Adapter.

NOTE For example, when an end-user wants to utilize some of the network application functions (i.e.

energy conservation, etc) on an appliance which does not have all of the network function integrated.

• By selecting Network Adapters which use the same interconnecting system as the existing

Home Network, routers or the gateways can be avoided.

NOTE 3 For example, when an end-user’s network is a powerline network, but the appliance the user wants

to connect to has only an RF network connection.

NOTE 4 For example, when an end-user’s network is based on home networking standard “A” (layer 1-7), but

the appliance the user wants to connect utilizes a home networking standard “B” (layer 1-7).

• Home appliance manufacturers can produce products that can be connected to Home

Networks with minimal cost increases since most of the network functions are not required

to be embedded in the appliance.

NOTE This standard is helpful for standardizing the manufacturing process for including the network

function in appliances- especially when the market has a low penetration of appliances that are network-ready.

• Device objects are based on the same object-oriented methodology used in almost all

existing network protocols.
