This part of ISO/IEC ISP 11188 specifies the common upper layer elements of ROSE-based A-profiles, which do not use RTSE. It documents ROSE-specific upper layer requirements over and above the common upper layer requirements specified in ISO/IEC ISP 11188-3. The common elements are specified by reference to OSI connection mode standards for the ROSE protocol, the ACSE protocol, the presentation layer protocol and the session layer protocol.
An ISP defining a ROSE-based A-profile may reference ISO/IEC ISP 1 1188-3 and this part of ISO/IEC ISP 11188 as the common basis for the selection of options for the upper layers, supplemented by a statement of its own specific upper layer requirements for the u se of the same protocol standards.
The rest of the A-profile definition including for instance its use of standards for Application Service Elements (ASE, see also figure 1), follows the general rules of ISO/IEC TR 10000-1.
1.2 Position within the Taxonomy
This part of ISO/IEC ISP 11188 does not specify a full A- profile, and therefore has no place within the taxonomy of ISO/IEC TR 10 000-2.
The model used is one of two end systems running an end-to-end association using the ROSE, ACSE, Presentation and Session services and protocols.
