Media Oriented Systems Transport Seminar

The MOST Cooperation is offering a one-day seminar on MOST Technology. MOST (Media Oriented Systems Transport) is a multimedia networking technology optimized for use in cars and other applications. It enables the transport of high Quality of Service audio and video together with packet data and real-time control over a single transmission medium. MOST can use plastic optical fiber or electrical unshielded or shielded twisted pair wire physical layers, that meet automotive environmental requirements.


The one-day seminar starts with an overview of MOST application examples, frames, speed grades, and basics. The event will introduce the MOST object model (FBlocks, functions, optypes, hierarchy, notification, shadows, and service discovery). MOST components for electrical and optical physical layer, the INIC, and companion devices will also be presented. In addition, the training will cover stream data (including allocation, bandwidth administration, and the ConnectionMaster example). The seminar will also offer details of the control channel — including the control message structure, transmission control, addressing on MOST, central registry, and segmentation. The seminar will conclude with hands-on demonstrations on how to send and receive control messages, the network startup & shutdown, and audio transmission.

The first seminar will be held Tuesday, April 28, 2009 in Karlsruhe (Germany). Next dates will be May 8, 13 and 14 in South Korea, and May 13 and 27, 2009, in Germany (Munich). Other dates and locations in Asia, Europe, and the United States will be available soon. The number of attendees is limited. Registrations will be accepted in the order they are received. The trainings will be instructed by different MOST Cooperation member companies including CAN Systems, Elektrobit, Ruetz System Solutions, and SMSC.
