ClimateTalk uses the classic 7-layer Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) Reference Model for the fully configured Tier 1 device.
Generally, only the simplest protocols are used alone. Most protocols, especially in the context of communications or networking, are layered together into protocol stacks. ClimateTalk has followed this convention, using the classic 7-layer Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) Reference Model for the fully configured Tier 1 device.
ClimateTalk is a data-centric model, with system intelligence residing in the routing of the information, not in a computer. There is a common, routable packet of information that is transmitted, regardless of the profile or devices. For example, in HVAC, the information travels on 2-wires and when used in a 4-wire bundle, both data and power are provided to take advantage of standard HVAC wiring practices. ClimateTalk has been design to also extend across multiple mediums.
