Abstract : Today the technology has reached the point that makes the communication among various subsystems easily realizable. On the other hand the complexity of these systems is such that their development is time and cost demanding. It is natural therefore to design our systems to communicate and work with each other and move away from the methods of the past. Interoperability of the various elements used in a system is the design property which allows the intermixing of elements from various sources (manufacturers) without any impact on the performance of the system or the operational software.
