A New Connection Management Architecture for the Next Generation of mLAN
mLAN is a networking technology based on the IEEE 1394 standard that allows for the transport of audio and music control data between audio devices. In the original implementation of mLAN, software within each mLAN node hosted by an audio device contained high level plug abstraction and connection management software. mLAN-B is the next generation mLAN architecture that splits the connection management function between workstation and device. The high level connection management and plug abstraction capability resides on the workstation, while a thin low level connection management capability is left on the device. This approach reduces cost and complexity on the device side and ensures that mLAN systems can be easily upgraded.
