Title: Standard for a Ubiquitous Community Network : Control and Management

Scope: Based on the protocols desribed in IEEE 1888 entitled "Ubiquitous Green Community Control Network Protocol", this standard describes the network gateway central access control and management policy through the extension of the existing interface protocol, message format and interactive processing in an ubiquitous green community network. This standard extends the standard definition of the IEEE 1888 interface protocol and message format. This standard mainly specifies the network gateway signal flow for access control, registration management, state querying, event reporting, and remote management.

Purpose: Through the extension of the IEEE 1888 interface protocol, this standard describes an open and standardized network gateway management interface and protocols for service providers, system integrators, and equipment manufacturers. The extension provides the means to remotely control and monitor the network gateway and other facilities in a green community, such as HVAC, lighting systems, and energy equipment.

Need for the Project: For ubiquitous community applications and energy informatization services, lack of an open and standardized interface protocol to manage and control the numerous diverse sensors, actuators and gateways is a common problem for service providers, system integrators, and network operators, etc. This standard provides a solution to this problem and improves both operational management and user awareness.
