physical plane (IN) (PP)

The physical plane(PP) forms the physical layer in the IN layer model. It consists of hardware units, the physical entities( PE), and describes the interfaces and protocols.

The physical entities communicate with each other using the Intelligent Network Application Protocol( INAP). Since the hardware entities can be spatially distributed over several buildings, it is the responsibility of the Physical Plane to map the functional instances, Functional Entities( FE), of the Distributed Functional Plane( DFP) above it to the Physical Entities.
