2. GENERAL DESCRIPTION
2.1 System setup
To interface with applications present in the CCU, we will use the Ethernet port present on the
CCU.

network
Figure 1 Hardware configurations remote controls
The device (PC, embedded controller, etc.) connected to the Ethernet port is the second
1
controlling system to the CCU . This device is called remote controller in the remaining part of
the document.
The PC on the top-right in Figure 1 is the DCN NG control PC. A control PC can be connected
via Ethernet. The remote controller on the right controls an application remotely using the
Ethernet port of the CCU. This remote controller can be, for instance, a mimic panel, a
computer that controls and presents voting results, etc.
Third parties can build their own remote controller software to serve several SW-applications.
Each SW-application on the remote controller can control the corresponding application on the
CCU using the remote interface protocol.
2.1.1 Use of TCP/IP port
The communication between the CCU and the remote controller is message based (remote
functions and update notification). The messages are transported as binary streams of bytes.
The remote control interface must be configured according to the specifications in Appendix
A.
2.1.2 Requirements
As mentioned above the remote controller can be connected to the TCP/IP port of the CCU.
For the remote controller the following hardware requirements are needed for the systems:
1
We assume that the DCN NG Control PC connected to an Ethernet port is the primary controller for the CCU.
The remote controller is then the secondary controller. Only one remote controller is needed to control remotely.
Both controllers may be present and operate concurrent, controlling different parts of the CCU.
Bosch Security Systems | 2013 March

DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1
⇒
Single/Multi CCU system (DCN-CCU):
This type of CCU has 1 TCP/IP port. An UTP or STP cable is used to connect the
master CCU-CCU to the remote controller.
The TCP/IP port number used for the communications is described in Appendix A.1.
2.1.3 Hardware connection
2.1.3.1 CCU
The hardware connection between the CCU and remote controller is made by using an UTP
or STP cable. The maximum cable length between the CCU and the remote controller may be
approximately 100 meter. When longer distances are needed we advise the use of a repeater
which ensures the transmission between two systems.
2.2 Message format
The communication used between the remote controller and the CCU is based on messages.
This chapter describes the format of the message and the different message types used to
transport data between the remote controller and the CCU.
2.2.1 Conventions
In the sections and chapters below several structures are defined. To prevent problems these
structures are defined using standard data types, which have defined sizes and usage. The
following data types will be used:
BOOLEAN : a 1 byte unsigned value with the range 0...1 (FALSE and TRUE).
CHAR
: a 1 byte type representing ASCII characters. Strings are represented as an
array of CHAR and are terminated with a zero (‘\0’) character.
BYTE
: a 1 byte unsigned value with the range 0...255.
SBYTE
: a 1 byte signed value with the range -128...127.
WORD
: a 2 byte unsigned value with the range 0...65535.
SWORD
: a 2 byte signed value with the range -32768...32767.
32
DWORD
: a 4 byte unsigned value with the range 0...(2 -1).
31
31
SDWORD : a 4 bytes signed value with the range -(2 )...(2 -1).
2
Note that all number representation in the data are presented in little-endian format.
2.2.2 DCN-NG message layout
2.2.2.1 Format of type MDSC_REMOTEPROCEDURE_REQ
Remote functions are messages, which are always transmitted to the CCU. The message
type must be equal to the value ‘MDSC_REMOTEPROCEDURE_REQ’.
The “message data” transmitted for a remote function follows the following format:
typedef struct
{
WORD
wFnId;
// function identifier
REQSTRUC
tStructure; // function parameters if any!
} RSMT_REMOTEPROCEDURE_REQ;
where:
wFnId
The function identifier.
tStructure
A structure containing the parameters needed to process the
2
Little endian is a storage mechanism where the least significant byte is stored on the lowest address, followed
by the more significant bytes. E.g. a WORD is represented in memory as two consecutive bytes where the LSB
is stored on the lowest address and the MSB on the next address.
Bosch Security Systems | 2013 March
DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1
en | 15
function defined by the function identifier (if any).
The ‘wFnId’ and the ‘tStructure’ are tightly coupled. Therefore the parameter structure is not
defined strictly with the basic types, but a special type is used to identify that the structure
depends on the function identifier.
The actual structure definition to be sent along with the remote function is not described in this
document. The structures are presented along with the definition of the remote function in the
interface documents for the application.
After the remote function request is sent to the CCU, the CCU will always send back a
response upon the reception of a remote function (see §2.2.2.2). The remote controller should
wait for the response to be sure that the function ended successfully before sending another
remote function to the CCU.
Note that the CCU does not generate this kind of messages.
2.2.2.2 Format of type MDSC_REMOTEPROCEDURE_RSP
Upon a receipt of a remote function the CCU shall process the requested function and create
a response as result of that function. The message type will be equal to the value
‘MDSC_REMOTEPROCEDURE_RSP’.
The message data received for the response of a remote function follows the following format:
typedef struct
{
WORD
wFnId;
WORD
wError;
RSPSTRUC tStructure;
} RSMT_REMOTEPROCEDURE_RSP;
// function identifier
// return error-code from the function
// response information if any!
where:
wFnId
The function identifier. The same value as passed with the
remote function request.
wError
The return error-code of the function called. Note that if this
value is non-zero, the content of the ‘tStructure’ parameter is
3
not valid .
tStructure
A structure containing the response information after the
processing of the remote function (if any).
The ‘wFnId’ and the ‘tStructure’ are tightly coupled. Therefore the response information
structure is not defined strictly with the basic types, but a special type is used to identify that
the structure depends on the function identifier.
The actual structure definition to be received after handling a remote function request is not
described in this document. The structures are presented along with the definition of the
remote function in the interface documents for the application.
2.2.2.3 Format of type MDSC_NOTIFY
Upon a status change the CCU reports this change by sending an update notification to the
remote controller. It is up to the remote controller to use the information received from the
CCU. The CCU sends the information to the remote controller and does not expect any reply
from the remote controller on these notifications.
The update notifications are always coming from the CCU and are only sent to the remote
4
controller if he has registered for an application . The message type will be equal to the value
‘MDSC_NOTIFY’.
3
Upon error the ‘wError’ field is filled with an error code (see Appendix C), which references the source of the
error. Depending on the location of the error the ‘tStructure’ data may not be present. Therefore do not use the
‘tStructure’ data when ‘wError’ is not equal to zero.
When the error code has not been described, the error must be reported.
Bosch Security Systems | 2013 March
en | 16
DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1
The message data received along the update notification follows the following format:
typedef struct
{
WORD
NTFSTRUC
} RSMT_NOTIFY;
wFnId;
tStructure;
// notification identifier
// update information if any!
where:
wFnId
The notification identifier.
tStructure
A structure containing the update information.
The ‘wFnId’ and the ‘tStructure’ are tightly coupled. Therefore the parameter structure is not
defined strictly with the basic types, but a special type is used to identify that the structure
depends on the notification identifier.
The actual structure definition to be sent along with the update notification is not described in
this document. The structures are presented along with the definition of the update notification
in the interface documents for the application.
2.2.3 Ethernet message layout
Each message must have this layout:
MessageType
Length
Data
Defined in (c-style) structure format:
struct {
DWORD
DWORD
BYTE
};
dwMessageType;
dwLength;
byData[];
// Message Type
// Message Length
// Message Data (Length – 8 bytes)
Where:
dwMessageType
dwLength
byData
4
The “message-type”, which describes the content of the actual
data passed.
The total length of the message in number of bytes, including
the sizes of the message-type and length. The length must
match the actual transmitted size of bytes.
Since the MessageType and the Length are always present, the
minimum size of the message is 8 bytes. The maximum size of
a message is 8000 bytes.
Data here is the data described in paragraph 2.2.3.1, 2.2.3.2
and 2.2.3.3.
Registration for an application is done by calling a ‘start application’ remote function call. This function call
enables the transmission of update notification for that application. The update can be stopped again by calling
the ‘stop application’ remote function call.

2.2.3.1 Format of type MESSAGETYPE_OIP_KeepAlive
Purpose:
The heartbeat message is a special message, which can be sent to the DCN NG System
at any time. In normal circumstances the heartbeat message is transmitted every 5
seconds (when nothing else to transmit). The message is used to notify the DCN NG
System that your system is still alive. The DCN NG System also sends heartbeat
messages to indicate that the DCN NG System is still operational. You must check if two
successive messages are received within 15 seconds.
Note that the heartbeat message is similar to the notification messages.
Parameter structure:
struct {
DWORD
DWORD
DWORD
DWORD
} OIP_KeepAlive;
dwMessageType;
dwLength;
dwReserved1;
dwReserved2;
Where:

and should be set to the value zero (0).
Message sequence number. Currently the reserved2 is not
used and should be set to the value zero (0).
2.2.3.2 Format of type MESSAGETYPE_OIP_ResponseProtocolError
Purpose:
Any message sent towards the DCN NG System is checked against its boundaries
(message size, string size, validity of the message-type, not logged in …). In case a
mismatch is detected regarding the size, a universal error response message is returned.
Response message as described in section 2.2.3.3 cannot be used, because the received
message is not decoded nor processed.
Parameter structure:
struct {
DWORD
dwMessageType;
DWORD
dwLength;
DWORD
dwReserved1;
DWORD
dwReserved2;
DWORD
dwErrorCode;
DWORD
dwErrorPosition;
} OIP_ResponseProtocolError;
Where:

The message type indicator for the message. Constant value
MESSAGETYPE_OIP_ResponseProtocolError (See
Appendix B).
The total length of the Heartbeat message (24 bytes for this
message).
Session sequence number. Currently the reserved1 is not used
and should be set to the value zero (0).
Message sequence number. Currently the reserved2 is not
used and should be set to the value zero (0).
The error code of the received message. For the possible error

codes see Appendix C.
The byte offset in the message stream, where the fault is
detected.
dwErrorPosition
Related messages:
Any message received by the DCN NG System and is not conform the message guideline as
described in 2.2.3.
2.2.3.3 Format of type MESSAGETYPE_OIP_Dcn
Command messages can be sent to control the DCN NG System. Commands always result in
a response from the DCN NG System. The expected response is referenced with each
command or the generic response MESSAGETYPE_OIP_ResponseProtocolError is
returned in case the message is corrupted. Each command message starts with a fixed
number of fields, which are presented below in structure format.
NOTE:
In the time between the transmission of the command message and the reception of the
response message, the DCN NG System can receive notification messages.

2.3 Protocol description
2.3.1 Ethernet Protocol Description
2.3.1.1 Open interface protocol
2.3.1.1.1 Set-up a connection
After DCN NG has been started, the CCU listens to port 9451. The set-up of the TCP/IP
connection must originate from your system using the IP address of the CCU and port 9451.
The connection between the DCN NG System and your System is based on a stream
connection. This implies that messages may be transferred using multiple packets.
2.3.1.1.2 Heartbeat
After the connection between your system and DCN NG has been established, the CCU of
DCN NG starts the heartbeat checks of your system. The CCU checks if a message is
received within 15 seconds after the last message. When the time between two messages is
more than 15 seconds, the CCU considers the connection to be broken and closes the
TCP/IP connection to your system.
It is advised to also run heartbeat checks of DCN NG on your system. To signal that the
connection is still present, you must transmit a "MESSAGETYPE_OIP_KeepAlive" message
(refer to section 2.2.3.1) to the CCU every 5 seconds when no other messages are ready for
transmission.
2.3.1.1.3 Timing values
This section presents the different value and time-limits needed for handling the protocol.

2.3.2 Remote function execution
Beside the protocol used for transmitting the data between the remote controller and the CCU,
the CCU executes the remote function requests. In this section the execution of the remote
functions is explained to give an overview about the generation of updates during the
execution.
The remote controller can sent a remote function request to the CCU. After the transmission
the remote controller must wait for the response coming from the CCU.
During the execution of that remote
function in the CCU, the internal
state of e.g. microphones changes.
This results in the generation of
update notifications, which are
transmitted to the remote controller
immediately. After the completion of
the remote function execution the
response of that function is sent
back to the remote controller. This
flow of messages to and from the
CCU is shown in Figure 2 (two
notification messages between the
request and the response).

The typical time between the request made and the response received is less than 0,5
seconds.
In the sequence described there is only one remote function request in execution on the CCU.
The remote controller waits for the completion of that remote function. The remote controller
can expect the following ending states of the remote request:
• The actual response of the remote function. The remote function is ended and there were
no transmission errors.
• The NAK packet. This implies that the CCU had a checksum error found after the
reception of the remote function request. The remote controller should respond on this
NAK message by sending again the same request.
• A time-out of the request pending. This means that the CCU does not respond any more.
The remote controller must wait upon the completion of his remote function request. But in
rare circumstance it is possible that there are two remote function requests pending. In that
case the CCU handles both remote function requests after each other (order is maintained).
2.3.3 Control flow with multiple remote controller’s
In a DCN NG-system as shown in Figure 1 (CCU with both a remote controller and the DCN
NG Control PC connected), there are up to three locations where events can be generated.
The locations are:
• The actual units. E.g. microphone keys, soft-keys (voting).
• The DCN NG Control PC connected using Ethernet. This DCN NG Control PC uses
Remote Function calls to trigger functionality.
• The remote controller connected using Ethernet. This Remote Controller also uses
Remote Function calls to trigger functionality.
To get a fully operational system both the DCN NG Control PC and the remote controller must
register themselves to the CCU, so they will receive update messages from the CCU.
Events coming from a unit are processed. During the processing, notifications are generated
and sent to all registered controllers. In the system mentioned above, both the DCN NG
Control PC and the Remote Controller will receive the same update notifications if they are
registered to the same application.
Remote functions coming from either the DCN NG Control PC or the Remote Controller
initiate a function in the CCU. During the function processing, notifications are generated and
sent to both the DCN NG Control PC and the Remote Controller. In this way both remote
controllers get the update information about the actions performed on request of the DCN NG
Control PC or the Remote Controller. (see also Figure 2).
Note that all remote functions are stored in a FIFO queue before execution. This means that
when both controllers call a remote function, both remote functions will be executed one after
another (the time difference depends which function will be executed first).
2.4 Remote Functions
2.4.1 Remote function handling
On the CCU all incoming remote functions are handled by the Remote Function Services
(RFS). During start-up of the system applications register their remote controllable functions at
the Remote Function Services.
When a remote function request is received by the CCU, that request is passed to the RFS
sublink. If the function is available, the data structure will be prepared for the response data.
During this process general failures may occur. The RFS sublink handles these failures by
returning an empty response (only containing the function identifier and the error-code, no
extra data). The error-code informs the remote controller which general failure has occurred.
Bosch Security Systems | 2013 March
DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1
Possible error codes are:
RFSE_BADFUNCTIONID
The remote function is not available
RFSE_ALLOCFAILED
Response space allocation failure
RFSE_NOACCESSPERMISSION The remote function is not authorized
These error-codes are described in Appendix C.
2.4.2 Simultaneous operation from Control PC and Remote Controller
In some cases it is possible to have the same application running on the DCN Next
Generation Control PC and (simultaneously) having that application running on a remote
controller. Some applications can only be active on one place at a time. In the table below all
possible combinations are depicted. All legal combinations are marked +. All illegal
combinations are marked -. If an illegal combination is created, the proper working of DCN is
not guaranteed anymore.

3. SYSTEM CONFIGURATION AND SYSTEM INSTALLTION
3.1 Introduction
The System Configuration and System Installation Remote Interface is part of the DCN NG
software which allows another controlling entity, not being the DCN NG Control PC, to use the
System Configuration and System Installation.
3.1.1 Remote functions
System Configuration (SC) is the application that monitors the hardware configuration of the
congress system and the link between hardware items and user information. Typical SC
issues are, e.g. checking the communication status, determining the system mode and
replacing units.
System Installation (SI) is the application that allows for assigning seat numbers to units to
create a one to one link between a unique user chosen identifier and a congress unit in the
conference hall.
Maintaining the system configuration or performing a system installation with a remote
interface is done by means of calling a defined set of Remote Functions and acting upon a
defined set of Update Notifications. The general concept of remote functions and update
notifications is described in chapter 2. This chapter also defines the protocol and hardware
conditions concerning the remote interface. This document gives the set of remote functions
and the set of update notifications concerning SC and SI. The relation between remote
function and update notifications is given in the description of each separate remote function.
The system configuration and system installation process however, are also influenced by the
actions of the users performed upon the actual units. Actions such as pressing the
microphone button or disconnecting a unit from the system also results in update notifications
being sent to the remote controller. The relation between unit/user events and update
notifications can be found in the user event matrices in sections 3.4.1.2 en 3.6.1.1.
3.1.1.1 Remote function item explanation
Each description consists of the following items:
• Purpose
A global description of the purpose of the function.
• Availability
CCU System modes in which the function is available. See section 3.1.2.
• Parameter structure for the function
The input parameters needed to fulfill the function. When the function requires no
parameters, no structure is described here.
• Response structure from the function
The output information returned by the function called. This information is only valid when
the ‘wError’ field of the received response information equals SC_E_NOERROR,
SI_E_NOERROR or DB_E_NOERROR.
• Error codes returned
The error values returned in the ‘wError’ field of the response information. All different error
codes are described in Appendix C Error Codes.
• Update notifications
The update notifications, which are generated during the execution of the remote function.
When there are no notifications generated, then this part will be omitted.
Related functions
The related function in conjunction with the function described. It refers to other remote
functions and to related update notifications.

DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1
3.1.2 System Modes
To understand the SC and SI functions, one should have some knowledge on the behavior of
the CCU depending on the various so-called system modes. This section gives a brief,
although complete, description of these modes.
The CCU system as a whole is always running in one of the system modes. Each application
on the CCU has its own behavior in each system mode. The purpose of the system mode is to
have a clear division of functions and an easy way of separating them. It should be impossible
for instance to start the installation mode while the CCU is still booting, i.e. the CCU is in the
Init-mode.
The following system modes are used:
Init
One time mode after start-up of the CCU. The CCU can
start with default data (defined as ‘cold start’), or with data
the last time used (so called ‘warm start’).
Config
In this system mode the DCN NG configuration can be
changed, for instance installing units, assigning seat
numbers, assigning audio channels etc.
Congress
This is the 'normal' system mode. In this mode most
applications will do their work, for instance starting a voting
round, turning on a microphone, interpreting etc.
Maintenance
In this system mode the DCN NG system can be
maintained, for instance factory testing.
Download
In this system mode new CCU software can be
downloaded.
Down
One time system mode just before shutdown of the CCU.
Figure 3 below gives an overview of possible system mode changes.

3.2 System Configuration (SC) Functions
3.3 Introduction
The system configuration functions described in this section are needed to query the set-up of
the DCN NG-system from the CCU. The system configuration functions allow the remote
controller to monitor any changes in the DCN NG system configuration. This chapter defines
the set of remote functions for system configuration.

This function is available in CCU system mode's init, maintenance, config and congress.
Parameter structure for the function
The function has no additional parameters.
Response structure from the function
The function has no response parameters.
Error codes
SC_E_NOERROR
3.3.2 SC_C_START_APP
Purpose
Indicates the CCU that the remote controller wants update notifications from the SC
application inside the CCU. After receiving this function the CCU increments the update ‘use’
count. As long as the update use count is greater than zero, the CCU will send update
notifications to the remote controller.
The returned update use count can be used to detect if the remote controller is connected too
often.
When you omit the execution of this remote function, you can still execute remote functions,
but no update messages will be sent to the remote controller.
Availability
This function is available in CCU system modes config and congress.
Parameter structure for the function
The function has no additional parameters.
Response structure from the function
The function returns the following structure:
WORD
wNrOfInstances
where:
wNrOfInstances
The value of the update use count for the SC application at the
end of the function handling. It contains the number of times a
remote PC has been connected over the same communication
medium. E.g. the first time the function SC_C_START_APP is
called, it contains the value 1.

3.4 System Configuration (SC) notifications
3.4.1 Introduction
This chapter defines the set of update notifications concerning SC send by the CCU.
3.4.1.1 Update Notification item explanation
Each description consists of the following items:
• Purpose
A global description of the purpose of the notification.
• Notify structure with this update
The information passed with the update notification.
3.4.1.2 Unit/user event relations
In the previous chapter a description is given of each remote function with a summary of
update notifications being the result of executing that function. However, update notifications
are also the results of user actions done on the actual units or CCU’s. This section gives
unit/user event matrices for the SC application in which the possible user events are linked
with the corresponding update notification(s) depending on the system set-up. For some
events also the required remote functions to continue SC monitoring and maintaining are
given.
The update notifications themselves are described in the remaining sections of this chapter.
The recommended functions from the SI group are described in chapter 3.4.8.

3.4.2 SC_C_CCU_REBOOT
Purpose
Notifies the remote controller that the CCU has restarted. This notification is always send at
start-up of the CCU and is the only notification message send by the CCU till the update
request function SC_C_START_APP is executed.
This notification should be monitored to detect a restart of the CCU. The remote controller
should take appropriate actions to restore the settings.
Notify structure with this update
The update comes with the same structure as used for the response of the remote function
SC_C_GET_CCU_VERSIONINFO (section 3.3.4).
3.4.3 SC_C_CONNECT_UNIT
Purpose
Notifies the remote controller that a new unit has connected to the CCU. The remote controller
can use this notification to add this unit to its functionality.
Notify structure with this update
The update uses the following structure:
SC_T_UNIT_DATA
tUnitData;
where:
tUnitData
Information about the unit that is connected. The elements
present in the structure are defined in section 3.3.5.
3.4.4 SC_C_DISCONNECT_UNIT
Purpose
Notifies the remote controller that a unit has lost his connection with the CCU (i.e. the unit is
disconnected from the ACN-trunk or MOST-trunk). This notification informs the remote
controller that the unit is no longer available.
Notify structure with this update
The update comes along with the same structure as defined in section 3.4.3.
3.4.5 SC_C_CONNECT_SLAVE_CCU
Purpose
Notifies the remote controller that a slave-CCU has connected to the master-CCU.
Notify structure with this update
The update comes with the following structure:
typedef struct
{
BYTE
bySlaveId;
WORD
wFillLevel;
SC_T_UNIT_DATA tConnectedUnits[SC_C_CLUSTER_MAX];
} SC_T_CCU_CONNECT;
where:
bySlaveId
The identification number of the slave-CCU involved.
wFillLevel
The number of units present in the tConnectedUnits array. Only
this amount of array elements is transmitted.
tConnectedUnits
A list of units that are connected to the slave in question. This
means that all units reported in the list are also connected. Each
list element is defined as a SC_T_UNIT_DATA structure which
is defined in section 3.3.5.
Note: Although the list is defined with SC_C_CLUSTER_MAX
elements, only the maximum number of units possible for
Bosch Security Systems | 2013 March
DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1
en | 38
one slave will be transmitted.
Currently the wFillLevel parameter will always be zero. Due to the nature of the units and the
control flow used with the CCU (slave and master), each unit will connect itself using the
notification SC_C_CONNECT_UNIT. Therefore no units are reported in this list. Future
extension in the software could build a list of units connected to a slave. That list should then
be reported in the tConnectedUnits list.
3.4.6 SC_C_DISCONNECT_SLAVE_CCU
Purpose
Notifies the remote controller that the master-CCU has lost connection to one of his slaveCCU’s. Along with this notification a list of all units connected to that slave is send. This
notification tells the remote controller that the listed units are no longer available.
Notify structure with this update
The update comes with the following structure:
typedef struct
{
BYTE
bySlaveId;
WORD
wFillLevel;
SC_T_UNIT_DATA tDisconnectedUnits[SC_C_CLUSTER_MAX];
} SC_T_CCU_DISCONNECT;
where:
bySlaveId
The identification number of the slave-CCU involved.
wFillLevel
The number of units present in the tDisconnectedUnits array.
Only this amount of array elements is transmitted.
tDisconnectedUnits
A list of units that are connected to the slave in question at the
moment of disconnecting the slave. This means that all units
reported in the list are also disconnected. Each list element is
defined as a SC_T_UNIT_DATA structure which is defined in
section 3.3.5.
Note: Although the list is defined with SC_C_CLUSTER_MAX
elements, only the maximum number of units possible for
one slave will be transmitted.
This notification differs from SC_C_CONNECT_SLAVE_CCU such that wFillLevel and the
tDisconnectedUnits array do inform the remote controller about units being disconnected
together with this Slave-CCU. This implies that the units listed in the ‘tDisconnectedUnits’ do
not notify themselves as disconnected with SC_C_DISCONNECT_UNIT.
3.4.7 SC_C_CCU_MODE_CHANGE
Purpose
Notifies the remote controller that the CCU changed its operation mode. For more information
about the different modes see 3.3.4.

}
tUnitId;
dwSerialNr;
where:
tUnitId
The unit identifier of a unit.
dwSerialNr
Serial number of the unit
Some units do not have actual serial numbers. In that case
the numbers are generated according to the current situation.
If this changes (i.e. a different addressing order after a de-init)
then the serial number will change. As long as the addressing
stays the same the serial numbers are supposed to remain
the same between single and multi systems.
3.4.9 SC_C_BATTERY_STATUS
Purpose
Notifies the remote controller the battery status of a unit. This notification is send after the
battery status of a unit has been changed or after SC_C_BATTERY_STATUS_REQ is
executed.

3.5 System Installation (SI) functions
3.5.1 Introduction
The system installation functions provide functionality to connect unit identification with the
seat numbers used within the congress-hall. This process is also called seat-assignment. This
chapter defines the set of remote functions needed for system installation. Each description is
according to the definition given in section 3.1.1.1.
3.5.2 SI_C_START_INSTALL
Purpose
Start the installation mode. The remote controller can choose between 2 modes of installation,
which are:
Mode
Description
SI_C_GLOBAL_INSTALL_MODE
Global installation mode. When activating this mode, the CCU stops all
applications running and only runs the installation application. When the
function is successfully executed, the CCU has changed the system mode
from congress to config.
Entering the system mode config enables the update notification
SI_C_REGISTER_UNIT, which informs the remote controller about
someone pressing a soft-key on a unit. The remote controller must use this
notification message to link the unit with a seat.
By pressing a soft-key on all units in order of the seat-numbers the remote
controller can build a list of units with the seat-numbers as index. An
example using this mode is presented in Appendix D.
SI_C_OPERATIONAL_INSTALL_MODE
Operational installation mode. During this mode all applications keep on
running. The CCU remains in the congress mode.
No special update notification for registration will be enabled. The remote
controller must select a proposed unit and the seat-number must be
searched to link them together.
To finish the installation, the remote controller must execute the function
SI_C_STOP_INSTALL.
Availability
This function is available in CCU system mode congress.

Although the PIN code is identified as a variable of the type ‘long’, the real PIN code is a 6-based number. This
means that only digits 1 - 5 are allowed to be part of the PIN code. Besides, the PIN code also depends on the
iPinSize variable. If e.g. iPinSize is 3, the possible values for lPin range from 111 to 555. If iPinSize is 5 then lPin
ranges from 11111 to 55555. So, lPin must always contain iPinSize digits in the range 1..5.

5. MICROPHONE MANAGEMENT
5.1 Introduction
The Microphone Management Remote Interface is part of the DCNNG software, which allows
for another controlling entity outside the CCU, not being the DCNNG Control PC, to use the
Microphone Management application.
5.1.1 Remote Microphone Management Control
Microphone Management is the application that allows for controlling the microphones in the
conference hall. Typical control issues are e.g.: turning a Microphone On, adding a delegate to
the RTS list, changing the Operation Mode etc.
Controlling microphones with a remote interface is by means of calling a defined set of
Remote Functions and acting upon a defined set of Update Notifications. The general concept
of Remote Functions and Update Notifications is described in chapter 2. This chapter also
describes the protocol and hardware conditions concerning the remote interface.
Together with this remote interface, there are up to three locations in a full-connected CCU
where MM can be influenced. These locations are:
• The remote interface or the remote controller (customer build client or DCNNG Control PC)
uses the TCP/IP interface. The remote controller makes Remote Function calls for
microphone management.
• The actual units that handle their microphone keys.
To get a full operational system both the DCNNG control PC and the remote controller must
register themselves to the CCU, so they will receive update messages from the CCU.
Remote functions coming from either the DCNNG control PC or the remote controller initiates
in the CCU an update of the internal lists. During the update, notifications are generated and
sent to both the DCNNG control PC and the remote controller. In this way both remote controllers get the update information about the actions performed on either the DCNNG control PC
or the remote controller.
During the processing of remote functions on the CCU, the update messages are created and
transmitted. This implies that the response information of a remote function can be received
after the reception of an update notification. The remote controller must wait for the response
of the remote function. After reception of the response appropriate action should be taken
upon the error code returned. The notifications received during the wait for the response may
be processed directly.
Requests coming from a unit are processed and the lists updated. During the update,
notifications are generated and sent to all registered PC’s. In the system mentioned above,
both the DCNNG control PC and the remote controller will receive the same update
notifications.
This document gives the set of Remote Functions and the set of Update Notifications
concerning Microphone Management. The relation between Remote Function, sent by the
remote controller, and Update Notifications is given in the description of each separate
Remote Function. The relation between unit events and Update Notifications is given in
section 5.3.1.2. At last, there is a relation between remote functions sent by the DCNNG
control PC and update notifications. Since both remote controller and DCNNG control PC
receive all update notifications, the set of update notifications therefore also contains those
that are the result of a remote function from the DCNNG control PC.
5.1.2 Microphone List and Mode Management
Handling the microphones in the system is basically a way of managing the various
microphone lists identified inside the CCU and choosing the appropriate operation mode. The
Microphone Management application has five microphone lists, which will be explained in the
table below:
Bosch Security Systems | 2013 March
en | 63
DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1
List
Notebook
Explanation
The notebook contains units having special privileges for turning on
their microphone. This list always contains the Chairman units in the
system. Other units can only be added to the notebook from within the
MM application on a DCNNG Control PC.
The notebook exists in all operation modes.
Speakers list
(SPK)
The speakers list contains the normal delegate units that are currently
allowed to speak. Note that this does not mean that those units have
their microphone switched on. Depending on the operation mode it is
possible that a unit is in the speakers list with its microphone switched
off.
The speakers list exists in all operation modes except for the mode
Delegate with Voice activation.
Request to Speak
list
(RTS)
The request to speak list contains the unit/delegate combinations that
requested to have their microphone switched on so they can speak.
Depending on the operation mode an unit/delegate is automatically
promoted to the speakers list or by means of an operator action.
The request to speak list exists in the modes Operator with Request list,
Operator with Request and Response list and Delegate with Request
list.
Comment
Request list
(CR)
The comment request list, or response request list, contains the
unit/delegate combinations. A delegate, who responses immediate on
the current speaker, will come in the comment list. This comment
request list is to prevent them from being added at the end of the
normal request to speak list and thus loosing the urgency of the
response.
The comment request list is only available in the mode Operator with
Request and Response list.
Comment
Speakers list
(CS)
The comment speakers list, or response speakers list, contains the
units that are promoted from the comment request list to make their
response (i.e. they are allowed to speak now). Promoting a unit from the
comment request list to the comment speakers list can only be done by
means of an operator action.
The comment speakers list is only available in the mode Operator with
Request and Response list.
In the table below the operation modes are identified by the value used in the remaining part
of this document. This table also describes the enabling/disabling of sets of remote functions
and update notifications as result of choosing a specific operation mode.

5.2 Remote Functions
5.2.1 Introduction
This chapter describes the various remote functions needed to perform microphone
management on the system.
5.2.1.1 Preconditions
The remote functions for the MM application acting on any of the microphone lists always use
the UnitId to perform the requested functionality. For the Request to speak list or Comment
Request list functions also a DelegateId is required. This UnitId and DelegateId must be
retrieved respectively set, using the appropriate functions of the SC/SI Remote Interface as
described in chapter 3.
5.2.1.2 Remote function item explanation
Each description consists of the following items:
• Purpose
A global description of the purpose of the function.
• Parameter structure for the function
The input parameters needed to fulfill the function. When the function
requires no parameters, no structure is described here. The type definitions of the basic
types used to build up the input parameter structure are given in chapter 2 .
• Response structure from the function
The output information coming from the function called. This information is
only valid when the ‘wError’ field of the received response information equals
MM_E_NOERROR.
• Error codes returned

5.2.2 MM General functions
5.2.2.1 MM_C_START_MM
Purpose
Indicates the CCU that the remote controller wants updates notifications from the MM application inside the CCU. After receiving this function the CCU increments the update use count.
As long as the update use count is greater than zero, the CCU will sent update notifications to
the remote controller. Update notifications are sent upon state changes due to actions from
the control PC(s) and all microphone actions on the units.
When you omit the execution of this remote function, you can still execute remote functions,
but no update notifications will be sent to the remote controller.
Parameter structure for the function
The function has no additional parameters.
Response structure from the function
The function returns the following structure:
WORD
wNrOfInstances
where:
wNrOfInstances
The value of the update use count for the MM application at the
end of the function handling. It contains the number of times a
remote PC has connected over the same communication
medium. E.g. the first time the MM_C_START_MM function is
called, it contains the value 1.
Error codes returned
MM_E_NOERROR
MM_E_OPEN_CLOSE_FAILED
Related functions
MM_C_STOP_MM
5.2.2.2 MM_C_STOP_MM
Purpose
Indicates the CCU that the remote controller no longer requires updates from the MM application inside the CCU. After receiving this function the CCU decrements the update use count.
As long as the update use count is still greater than zero, the CCU remains sending the
update notifications to the remote controller.
A call to this function when the update use count is already zero will keep the use count to
zero and nothing shall happen.
When the use count reaches zero then the microphone management application inside the
CCU returns to its stand-alone operation. This return involves a change in the following
settings of the MM-application:

5.2.3 MM Speaker list functions
This section describes the functions to manipulate the speakers list.
5.2.3.1 MM_C_SET_MICRO_ON_OFF
Purpose
Control the microphone of a unit. This function gives the ability to turn the microphone of a unit
on or off. To describe the functionality included with this function several cases of this function
are described in the table below:
Case
Action performed
Delegate unit micro on
The unit is appended to the SPK list if possible.
Delegate unit micro off
The units’ microphone is turned off, but the unit still
remains in the SPK list. To remove the speaker also from
the SPK list, use the remote call MM_C_SPK_REMOVE
(see section 5.2.3.3).
Delegate unit micro on
(already in the SPK list)
The units’ microphone is turned on. The unit remains in
the SPK list.
Chairman unit micro on
The units’ microphone is turned on.
Chairman unit micro off
The units’ microphone is turned off.
Parameter structure for the function
The function requires the following structure as parameter:
typedef struct
{
WORD
wUnitId;
BOOLEAN bMicroOn;
} MM_T_MICRO_ONOFF;
where:

5.2.6 MM Request to Speak list functions
This section describes the functions to manipulate the RTS list. The RTS list is a list of
delegates with their unit identifications, which are waiting to get speech-time.
Both the UnitId and the DelegateId are present in the RTS list, because using access-control
with cards and free seating, allows a delegate to leave its unit (taking out his card) and go to
another unit (inserting his card again). During these actions a pending request of that delegate
Bosch Security Systems | 2013 March
en | 78
DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1
must remain in the RTS list and while the card is not in the system the unit of the delegate is
unknown.
For manipulation of the RTS list a special structure is used to identify a RTS list entry. The
structure is defined as follows:
typedef struct
{
WORD
wUnitId;
WORD
wDelegateId;
} MM_T_RTS;
where:
wUnitId
Unit Identifier. Must be unique in the RTS list
wDelegateId
Delegate Identifier. May also have the value
DBSC_EMPTY_DELEGATE, when the delegate is unknown.
Delegate identifiers can be set in the system using the remote
functions for System Config chapter 3.
When a RTS list entry is passed with one of the RTS functions the CCU tries to complete the
RTS information passed. This means that when only the ‘wUnitId’ is provided, the CCU will
search the correct delegate and when only the ‘wDelegateId’ is provided; the CCU will search
for the correct unit. Assumed is that not provided elements are filled with the according
DBSC_EMPTY_UNIT or DBSC_EMPTY_DELEGATE value.
When both elements of the structure have empty values or the unit and the delegate
contradict each other, all functions (except MM_C_SHIFT, see section 5.2.6.6) generate an
error (MM_E_UNKNOWN_UNITID_AND_DELID or MM_E_UNITID_DELID_MISMATCH).
5.2.6.1 MM_C_RTS_APPEND
Purpose
Add a delegate/unit combination to the RTS list on the CCU.

5.2.6.6 MM_C_SHIFT
Purpose
Perform a shift function, i.e. promote a delegate from the RTS list to the Speakers list. The
shift differs from other RTS list or Speakers list functions in such a way that the promoted
delegate is always added to the speakers list, whether this list is full or not. Besides, the CS
list and CR list if present are also cleared. This includes the following steps:
1. Clear the CR list and the CS list if the mode is
MM_C_OPERATOR_WITH_COMMENT_LIST
2. Remove the indicated RTS entry from the RTS list. When the indicated entry does not exist
in the RTS list, then the removal is skipped and the entry provided will be used. Note that
the latter also holds when the operation mode is MM_C_DELEGATE_WITH_OVERRIDE
(see also 5.2.2.5).
3. Look if there is an entry free in the SPK list. If not, then a free entry will be created using on
of the following rules:
• If there are SPK entries with their microphone off, then first of these will be
removed.
• When there are only SPK entries with their microphone on, the first unit in the list
will be turned off and removed from the list
4. Create from the RTS entry a SPK entry and add this to the SPK list.
Bosch Security Systems | 2013 March
DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1
en | 81
Parameter structure for the function
The function requires the structure MM_T_RTS as parameter. This structure is defined in
section 5.2.6.
Normally the provided RTS list entry defines which delegate/unit combination is candidate to
shift to the speakers list.
When the provided RTS is filled with empty values (wUnitId = DBSC_EMPTY_UNIT and
wDelegateId = DBSC_EMPTY_DELEGATE), the first RTS entry present in the RTS list is
used. If there are no RTS entries present or when the operation mode is
MM_C_DELEGATE_WITH_OVERRIDE, nothing happens.
Response structure from the function
The function has no response parameters.

5.2.7 MM Comment Request list functions
This section describes the functions to manipulate the CR list. The Comment Request list is a
list of delegates with their unit identifications, which are waiting to get speech-time to respond
to the current speaker. This comment request list is to prevent the delegate from being added
at the end of the normal RTS list.
Comment Requests are identified by the same MM_T_RTS structure as normal RTS entries.
Comment Requests show the same behavior in combination with access-control and cards as
normal RTS entries.
5.2.7.1 MM_C_CR_REMOVE
Purpose
Remove one delegate/unit combination from the CR list on the CCU.

MM_C_RTS_CLEAR_COMMENT
5.2.7.3 MM_C_SHIFT_CR
Purpose
Perform a shift function on the CR list, i.e. promote a delegate from the CR list to the CS list.
The shift differs from other Comment Request list or Speakers list functions in such a way that
the promoted delegate is always added to the comment speakers list, whether this list is full or
not. Besides, of all units present in the SPK list the microphones will be turned off. This
includes the following steps:
1. Remove the indicated Comment Request entry from the CR list. When the indicated entry
does not exist in the CR list an error is returned.
2. Turn off the microphones off all entries in the SPK list.
3. Look if there is an entry free in the CS list. If not, then removing the first unit in the CS list
will create a free entry.
4. Create from the Comment Request entry a SPK entry and add this to the CS list.
If however, the delegate was already present in the normal speakers list, then the Comment
Request entry is removed from the CR list and the microphone of the entry in the SPK list is
switched on again.
Note: Currently the operation mode MM_C_OPERATOR_WITH_COMMENT_LIST is only
allowed with a maximum number of active speakers of 1. Also the CS list has currently a
maximum length of 1. This means that when a comment request is shifted, the microphone of
the current speaker in the SPK list is switched off and the current speaker in the CS list, if
present, is removed to make place for the shifted CR entry.
Parameter structure for the function
The function requires the structure MM_T_RTS as parameter. This structure is defined in
section 5.2.6.
Response structure from the function
The function has no response parameters.

5.2.8 MM Speechtime functions
This section describes the functions to manipulate the speech-time.
There is no synchronization between different controllers, e.g. Remote Control and ControlPC. The last controller, which is used, is the active one.
It is the responsibility of the controller to invoke the different functions when necessary. The
CCU won’t do this for you. The controller should check the speech-time for each individual
speaker and invoke the relevant speech-time function.
5.2.8.1 MM_C_SET_SPEECHTIME_SETTINGS
Purpose
This function stores the speech-time settings in the CCU.
Parameter structure for the function
This function requires the following structure as parameter:
typedef struct
{
WORD
wSpeechTimeLimit;
BOOLEAN bTimerOn;
BOOLEAN bHoldOnChairPriority;
BOOLEAN bShowRemainingTime;
BOOLEAN bLedFollowMicLed;
} MM_T_SET_SPEECHTIME_SETTINGS;
where:
wSpeechTimeLinit
Speech time limit in minutes
bTimerOn
TRUE: use the speech timer
FALSE: don’t use the speech timer
bHoldOnChairPriority
TRUE: hold timer if one or more Chairman press their Prio
button.
FALSE: don’t hold timer.
bShowRemainingTime
TRUE: down counting timer.
FALSE: up counting timer.
bLedFollowMicLed
TRUE: the LED ring of the microphone follows the flashing
microphone LED in the last minute of speech.
FALSE: The LED ring does NOT follow the flashing mode of the
microphone LED.

5.3 Update Notifications
5.3.1 Introduction
This chapter describes the various update notifications sent by the CCU. All the update
notifications of the MM application are listed in this chapter.
5.3.1.1 Update notification item explanation
Each update notification description consists of the following items:
• Purpose
A global description of the purpose of the notification.
Bosch Security Systems | 2013 March
en | 84
DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1
en | 85
• Notify structure with this update
The information passed with the update notification.
5.3.1.2 Unit/user event relations
As we have mentioned in section 5.1.1, update notifications are not only the results of remote
functions generated by the remote controller, but can also be the results of unit/user events.
To understand these relationships, a unit-event matrix is given in this section. It is assumed
that the remote controller is used with a stand-alone configuration (i.e. no DCNNG Control PC
6
connected), so only a distinction between chairman and delegate is made.
In the unit-event matrix for each event the corresponding update notifications are given,
depending on the operational mode and the type of unit/user. For the Voice Activated mode
there are no update notifications generated at all, so this mode isn’t mentioned in the table
either. The update notifications themselves are described in the remaining sections of this
chapter.
Note that the input events for Microphone and/or Request to Speak are initiated by pressing
the Micro button on a Delegate and/or Chairman unit and the input event for Priority is initiated
by pressing the Priority button on a chairman unit. The input events for Comment Requests
can only occur in the operation mode MM_C_OPERATOR_WITH_COMMENT_LIST. In that
7
mode the main menu and the speakers menu of the delegate units have assigned softkey 3
to the response (i.e. comment) option. This implies that this response option is only available
when the unit has the main menu or the MM menus as current menu. Thus, if a voting round
is running, or a message is being read, the comment option is not available.
6
When speaking of chairman or delegate we really mention the user in the conference hall acting on a chairman
unit and on a delegate unit respectively
7
On units having softkeys but no display the working is equal as if it were units with display and always showing
the main menu.

DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1
Note that a delegate does not really turns on its microphone, but he makes a Request to
speak. Depending on the operation mode and the current lists, he is added to the SPK list or
the RTS list. On this Request-to-Speak-event also a remark has to be made if the
unit/delegate is in the Speakerslist but with the microphone off (which is possible with the
function MM_C_SET_MICRO_ON_OFF, see section 5.2.3.1). In that case for all operation
modes a MM_C_SPK_REMOVE_ON_PC update notification is first given for the current unit
after which the update notifications according to the event matrix are generated.

6. CAMERA CONTROL
6.1 Introduction
The Camera Control Remote Interface is part of the DCN Next Generation software that
allows for another controlling entity outside the CCU, not being the DCN Next Generation
Control PC, to use the Camera Control application.
6.1.1 Remote Camera Control Control
Camera Control is the application that allows configuration of Automatic Camera Control.
Typical configuration issues are e.g.: setting camera assignments, setting camera acticity,
setting global settings etc. More details on the complete CC application can be found in the
user manual [USERDOC_CC].
Configuring Camera Control with a remote interface is achieved by means of calling a defined
set of Remote Functions and acting upon a defined set of Update Notifications. The general
concept of Remote Functions and Update Notifications is described in chapter 2chapter 2.
This chapter also describes the protocol and hardware conditions concerning the remote
interface.
Together with this remote interface, there are at the moment two locations in a fully connected
CCU where CC can be influenced. These locations are:
• A remote controller (which can be the control PC) connected using an Ethernet (in case of
MCCU) or RS-232 (in case of SCCU) connection. This remote controller uses Remote
Function calls to configure Camera Control.
• Chairman or delegate units influence Camera Control indirectly: if their microphone is
activated and a camera was assigned to their position, the camera is activated.
To get a fully operational system the remote controller must register itself to the CCU, in order
for it to receive update messages from the CCU.
Remote functions coming from the remote controller can indirectly initiate update notifications
in the CCU. Note that these update notifications are actually generated in connected camera
equipment. Depending on the fact whether or not camera equipment is connected to the CCU,
and on which type of equipment is connected, update notifications may be sent to the CCU.
The CCU then forwards these to the remote controller.
Since the update notifications are only generated indirectly, they will always be received after
the reception of response information of a remote function. The remote controller must wait
for the response of the remote function. After reception of the response appropriate action
should be taken upon the error code returned.
Events coming from a unit (chairman or delegate) are processed and the CCU is updated.
Although there are no events that directly lead to generating and sending notifications, there
are unit events that can indirectly lead to notifications. Again note that it depends on the type
of equipment used and its connection state whether or not the notifications are sent. The
notifications are sent on by the CCU to the registered remote controller.
This document gives the set of Remote Functions and the set of Update Notifications
concerning Camera Control. The relation between Remote Function, sent by the remote
controller, and Update Notifications is given in the description of each separate Remote
Function. The (indirect) relation between unit events and Update Notifications is given in
section 6.3.1.2.
6.2 Remote Functions
6.2.1 Introduction
This chapter describes the remote functions used to configure the Camera Control application
on the CCU.
Bosch Security Systems | 2013 March
DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1
en | 95
6.2.1.1 Remote function item explanation
Each description consists of the following items:
• Purpose
A global description of the purpose of the function.
• Parameter structure for the function
The input parameters needed to fulfill the function. When the function requires no
parameters, no structure is described here. The type definitions of the basic types used to
build up the input parameter structure are given in chapter 2.
• Response structure from the function
The output information coming from the function called. This information is only valid when
the ‘wError’ field of the received response information equals CC_E_NOERROR.
• Error codes returned
The possible error values returned in the ‘wError’ field of the response information for this
remote function. All different error codes are described in Appendix C Error Codes.
• Update notifications
The update notifications that are generated during the execution of the remote function.
When there are no notifications generated, this part will be omitted. Note that for CC, all
update notifications are generated indirectly and therefore will not always be sent
(depending on the configuration).
• Related functions
The related function in conjunction with the function described. It refers to other remote
functions and to related update notifications. When there are no related functions, this part
will be omitted.
6.2.2 CC General functions
6.2.2.1 CC_C_START_CAMERA_APP
Purpose
This function indicates the CCU that the remote controller wants to communicate with the CC
application inside the CCU. After receiving this function the CCU gives the control of CC to the
remote controller. It is now impossible for another remote controller (e.g. DCNNG Control PC)
to gain control of the application. After this function has been called, the remote controller will
receive update notifications from the CC application (see section 6.3.1.2).
When the execution of this function is omitted, all other remote functions (except
CC_C_GET_GLOBAL_SETTINGS and CC_C_SEND_DATA) will have no effect and will
return an error code (CC_E_NOT_INCONTROL).
Parameter structure for the function
The function has no additional parameters.
Response structure from the function
The function has no response parameters.

6.3.1.2 Unit/user event relations
As mentioned in section 5.1.1, update notifications are not only the result of remote functions
generated by the remote controller, but can also be the result of (interpreter) unit/user events.
It was also mentioned in section 5.1.1 that the relation between the unit/user events and the
update notifications is indirect (i.e. asynchronous).
This section gives information about the events coming from a unit/user and the possible
processing done for the events. In the table below an overview is made about the events and
the possible actions performed. Note that it depends on the type of equipment used and its
connection state whether or not the notifications are sent.

7. SIMULTANEOUS INTERPRETATION
7.1 Introduction
The Simultaneous Interpretation Remote Interface is part of the DCN Next Generation
software that allows for another controlling entity outside the CCU, not being the DCN Next
Generation Control PC, to use the Simultaneous Interpretation application.
7.1.1 Remote Simultaneous Interpretation Control
Simultaneous Interpretation is the application that allows preparation and monitoring over the
functionality of the interpreter desks. Typical control issues are e.g.: setting a desk
configuration, changing the interlock mode, changing the channel languages etc. More details
on the complete IN application can be found in the user manual [USERDOC_IN].
Controlling Simultaneous Interpretation with a remote interface is achieved by means of
calling a defined set of Remote Functions and acting upon a defined set of Update
Notifications. The general concept of Remote Functions and Update Notifications is described
in chapter 2. This chapter also describes the protocol and hardware conditions concerning the
remote interface.
Together with this remote interface, there are at the moment two locations in a fully connected
CCU where IN can be influenced. These locations are:
• A remote controller (which can be the control PC) connected using an Ethernet (in case of
MCCU) or RS-232 (in case of SCCU) connection. This remote controller uses Remote
Function calls to control Simultaneous Interpretation.
• The actual interpreter units that handle their interpreter desk control keys.
To get a fully operational system the remote controller must register itself to the CCU, in order
for it to receive update messages from the CCU.
Remote functions coming from the remote controller can initiate an update in the CCU. During
the update, notifications are generated and sent to the remote controller.
During the processing of remote functions on the CCU, the update messages are created and
transmitted. This implies that the response information of a remote function can be received
after the reception of an update notification. The remote controller must wait for the response
of the remote function. After reception of the response appropriate action should be taken
upon the error code returned. The notifications received during the wait for the response may
be processed directly. See chapter 2 for details on this mechanism.
Events coming from a unit (interpreter desk) are processed and the CCU is updated. Although
there are no events that directly lead to generating and sending notifications, there are unit
events that indirectly lead to notifications. These notifications are sent to the registered remote
controller.
This document gives the set of Remote Functions and the set of Update Notifications
concerning Simultaneous Interpretation. The relation between Remote Function, sent by the
remote controller, and Update Notifications is given in the description of each separate
Remote Function. The (indirect) relation between unit events and Update Notifications is given
in section 6.3.1.2.
7.2 Remote Functions
7.2.1 Introduction

7.2.3 IN General functions
7.2.3.1 IN_C_SIGNAL_CCU
Remarks
This function is exported in the IN remote interface for compatible reasons only!
Use IN_C_START_IN_APP / IN_C_STOP_IN_APP instead. This function will not be
supported from version 3.0.
Purpose
Function to update the controller state on the CCU. Depending on the state the database
system setting StandAloneIN is updated, a timer for controller update messages is inserted or
deleted, a configuration notification and/or a states notification is forced. When a timer is
inserted, a states notification is sent every time this timer times out.
Parameter structure for the function
The function requires the following structure as parameter:
struct
{
WORD
WORD
}
wDummy;
wPCActive;
where:
wDummy
Dummy value, not used in the function.
wPCActive
The controller state. This controller state is a bit-shifted version
(8-bit left shift) of one of the states IN_C_STANDALONE or
IN_C_WITHPC. In case of IN_C_STANDALONE, the database
system setting StandAloneIN is set to FALSE and the timer for
controller update messages is deleted. In case of
IN_C_WITHPC StandAloneIN is set to TRUE, an update timer
is inserted and both a configuration and states notification is
sent.

Response structure from the function
The function returns the following structure:
WORD
wNrOfInstances
where:
wNrOfInstances
The value of the update use count for the IN application at the
end of the function handling. It contains the number of times a
remote controller (other than the remote PC) has connected
over the same communication medium. Therefore the first time
the IN_C_START_MON_IN function is called, it contains the
value 1.

IN_C_CHAN_STATUS
IN_C_CCU_CONFIG
7.2.3.2 IN_C_START_IN_APP
Purpose
Indicates the CCU that the remote controller wants to communicate with the IN application
inside the CCU. After receiving this function the CCU gives the control of IN to the remote
controller. It is now impossible for another remote controller (e.g. DCNNG Control PC) to gain
control of the application. After this function has been called, the remote controller will receive
update notifications from the IN application (see section 6.3.1.2).
When the execution of this function is omitted, all other remote functions (except the other
start and stop functions) will have no effect and will return an error code
(IN_E_APP_NOT_STARTED).
Parameter structure for the function
The function has no additional parameters.
Response structure from the function
The function returns the following structure
WORD
wNrOfInstances;
where:

Purpose
This function changes the whole installation of the IN application. If the slave configuration
does not allow the installation data, nothing happens and an error is returned. If the installation
data is allowed, it changes the autorelay booths, the interlock modes, the channel languages
and the number of channels and per interpreter desk the incoming and outgoing channels and
which B out channels are enabled. The whole application is stopped and restarted in a default
situation after all data is updated and downloaded to the desk. If the passed parameters
exactly correspond to the current situation in the CCU, nothing happens and
IN_E_NOERROR is returned.

TRUE stands for normal mode. If the microphone of an
interpreter desk in a booth is switched on (first desk), the
engaged LED (of the output channel of the active desk) will light
up on all other interpreter desks of that booth.
FALSE stands for alternative mode. In this case, the engaged
LED of the other interpreter desk in the booth will not light up. It
will be flashing when another interpreter desk in the booth also
activates its microphone, but this happens in normal mode too.
tDeskConf[][]
Matrix holding the desk configuration. Each matrix element is
defined as an IN_T_DESKCONFIG structure that is defined
below. The position in the matrix defines the desk and booth
number of the unit (interpreter desk). Adding the value 1 to the

FALSE if the interpreter desk is not installed. In this
case all other parameters of this IN_T_DESKCONFIG
structure are discarded.
wUnitId
Unit Identifier. Valid values are 1..231 and 233..242
(note that the unit identifier must be unique for every
active unit, i.e. not only for interpreter desks). If there is
no unit assigned to the desk and booth number this
identifier belongs to (see tDeskConf explanation), it
must have the value DCNC_UNASSIGNED_UNIT. The
mapping of unit identifiers to booth and desk numbers
must be the same as the mapping received in the last
IN_C_CHAN_STATUS notification (see 6.3.2.1 tIntMics). If this is not the case, the error
IN_E_INCORRECT_DESK_CONFIG will be returned.

1..byMaxChans
cOutSelect
‘A’ if the A out channel of the interpreter desk is active
’B’ if the B out channel of the interpreter desk is active.
Note that this parameter is case sensitive, i.e. if it is ‘a’
or ‘b’ the error code IN_E_WRONG_PARAMETER will
be returned.
dwfBChannelSet
Double word (32 bits), of which the bits indicate which
channels are enabled for the B out channel of the
interpreter desk. The least significant bit stands for
channel 1. If a bit is equal to 1, the channel it stands for
is enabled for the B out channel.

where:
tChannelLang
Array holding the channel languages. This array can hold up to
DBSC_MAX_INTERPRT_CHANNELS channel languages. If
the array holds less channel languages, this is marked by an
array value equal to the constant IN_C_NOMORE_CHANNELS.
All values in the array after this special value are ignored (this
way the number of channels is determined). The range of the
channel languages is 1..DBSC_MAX_LANGNAME. Also note
that the range of the number of channels is
1..DBSC_MAX_INTERPRT_CHANNELS. Therefore if the
constant IN_C_NOMORE_CHANNELS is found in

combinations). At most one unit can be assigned to a booth/desk combination. Units can be
assigned to already occupied booth/desk combinations. If the current occupant is not in the
assignment list then it will be overwritten and the settings will be discarded. If it is in the list
then the settings remain untouched. This includes the settings for the output channels (such
as the A and B channels). Only units that have not been assigned before get the default
settings. The order of the list is also irrelevant.

7.3.1.2 Unit/user event relations
As we have mentioned in section 5.1.1, update notifications are not only the result of remote functions generated by the remote controller, but can also
be the result of (interpreter) unit/user events. It was also mentioned in section 5.1.1 that the relation between the unit/user events and the update
notifications is indirect (i.e. asynchronous).
This section gives information about the events coming from a unit/user or a remote controller and the processing done for the events. In the table
below an overview is made about the events and the actions performed.

This action only leads to the shown notification if the microphone of the interpreter desk is turned on when the action is performed. If the microphone is off, performing the
action will not lead to any update notifications.

If the CCU controls the IN application (i.e. no remote controller connected), the interpreter desks have a full installation menu. Therefore more settings than present in the
IN_C_CHAN_STATUS notification can be changed. Due to this reason the IN_C_CCU_CONFIG, IN_C_FLASHING_MIC_ON. IN_C_SPEAKSLOWLY_SIGN and
IN_C_HELP_SIGN update notification are also sent, but only when there is no remote controller.

TRUE if there was a change in connected units (i.e. interpreter
desks were connected or disconnected) since the last status
update
FALSE if there was no change in connected units since the last
update.
tIntMics
Matrix holding the microphone status information of the
connected interpreter desks. Each matrix element is defined as
an IN_T_MICSTAT structure that is defined below. Every
element holds the information of one particular desk in one
particular booth. The position in the matrix defines the desk and
booth number of the unit (interpreter desk). Adding the value 1
to the indexes of the matrix retrieves the booth and desk
number, e.g. tIntMics[0][1] hold the data of the interpreter desk
located in booth 1 with desk number 2.
tInActiveChan
Matrix holding the active out channels of the connected units.
The value of the matrix elements is either ‘A’ or ‘B’.
tAChannels
Matrix holding the A out channels of the connected units.
tBChannels
Matrix holding the B out channels of the connected units.
tInChannels
Matrix holding the incoming channels of the connected units.
wUnitId
Unit Identifier. If there is no unit assigned to the desk
and booth number this identifier belongs to, it will have
the value DCNC_UNASSIGNED_UNIT.

8. PARLIAMENTARY AND MUTLI VOTING
8.1 Internal Functioning Voting application
The voting application present in the CCU is set up as an engine capable of handling parliamentary
kind of voting’s. For all voting rounds to be carried out, you can identify common aspects for each
different kind of voting.
The voting application uses the common aspects to control the voting requested. Some of these
common aspects are:
• Subject of the voting
• The kind of the voting (e.g. parliamentary voting with “Yes”, “No“ & Abstain” answers)
• General setting (e.g. voting time limit, etc.)
More details on the complete parliamentary voting application can be found in the appropriate user
manuals.
8.1.1 Voting subject
The Voting subject is controlled by the remote function VT_C_DOWNLOAD_SUBJECT. This remote
function passes the subject text along with a motion number as subject identifier to the CCU. The
CCU in his turn uses the motion number to identify the subject handled.
8.1.2 Voting kind
The voting kind determines the kind of voting to run by the voting application. The voting kind is
controlled by the remote function VT_C_SET_VOTINGPARAMS. This remote function passes the
kind of the voting (e.g. "parliamentary"), the number of answer options (e.g. "3"), the answer menu
settings (e.g. "Yes, Abstain, No"), etc. to the CCU. More parameters to complete the identification of
the voting kind must be passed to the CCU. A complete list of parameters can be found at the
remote function description in section 8.2.2.8.
8.1.3 General Voting setting
The general voting settings are mostly common for multiple voting rounds (done over different kind of
voting’s). These settings include settings like:
• Voting time limit
Shows how many minutes and seconds the delegates have to complete their vote.
• Voting LED’s
Shows the vote done using the LED’s on the delegate's unit or use one of the secret voting
sequences available.
• First vote counts
Informs that the first vote entered (TRUE) or the last vote entered (FALSE) by the delegate
counts.
Detailed information about all the general voting settings can be found at the description for the
remote function VT_C_SET_GLOBAL_SETTINGS (section 8.2.2.9).
8.1.4 Communication settings
Not mentioned by the common aspects are the communication settings. These settings are used to
control how the communication of the results should take place. The results can be sent to the
remote controller using update notification (VT_C_RESULTSNOTIFY), or the results are not
automatically sent to the remote controller. In the latter case the remote controller must collect the
results using remote function (VT_C_GET_RESULTS).
Besides the selection of collecting the results (automatic of manual), these settings also includes the
way results could be received. A selection can be made to receive the results compressed or normal.
The next section explains the compressed result structure in more depth.
Bosch Security Systems | 2013 March
en | 127
DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1
8.1.4.1 Result structure format definition
As stated in the communication settings the results could be received normally or compressed. For
both communication settings the same structure is used.
typedef struct
{
WORD
wVotingNumber;
DWORD
dwNrOfPresent;
DWORD
dwNrOfNotVoted;
DWORD
dwNrOfVotes [VT_C_MAX_ANSWER_OPTIONS];
WORD
wFillLevel;
BOOLEAN bCompressed;
BYTE
byDelegateVotes [VT_C_MAX_RESULT_DELEGATE];
} VT_T_RESULT_REC;
where:
wVotingNumber
The voting number as set during the
VT_C_DOWNLOAD_SUBJECT remote function.
The value VT_C_STANDALONE_VOTING indicates that no
subject was downloaded before the start of the voting.
dwNrOfPresent
Total number of delegates which are present for the voting
round. Range 0-DBSC_MAX_DELEGATE.
dwNrOfNotVoted
Total number of delegates which have not voted yet. For the
record: these delegates are present for the voting. So
dwNrOfNotVoted <= dwNrOfPresent.
dwNrOfVotes
Array with in each array-element the total of casted votes for
that answer-option, whereby the last item in the array holds the
total voting weight of the not voters. The total is calculated by
taking the sum of the delegates who have casted this particular
vote multiplied by their vote-weight.
wFillLevel
Highest array index available in the ‘byDelegateVotes’ array.
Range 0-VT_C_MAX_RESULT_DELEGATE.
bCompressed
Inform that the ‘byDelegateVotes’ is compressed or not.
Possible values are:
byDelegateVotes
TRUE
The array is compressed and holds the results of
two delegates in each array-element.
FALSE
The array is not compressed. One delegateinformation in each array-element.
Array containing the vote per delegate. The index is based on
the DelegateId - 1. When the results are not compressed, each
element contains the vote of one delegate. If the results are
compressed, each element contains the vote of two delegates.
The high nibble of the element contains the vote of an even
DelegateId and the low nibble of the element contains the vote
of an uneven DelegateId.
Note that for this array only the number of array-elements as
stored in the parameter ‘wFillLevel’ is actual transmitted
between the CCU and the remote controller.
Note when using compressed results, the lower nibble of the
possible answer values is also taken. This means that the
‘nibble’-value 0xE means VT_C_VOTE_NOT_VOTED and
‘nibble’-value 0xF means VT_C_VOTE_UNASSIGNED.
Due to the limitation of the data-length of the structure both communication settings have their
restrictions, which are:
Normal
The ‘byDelegateVotes’ holds for each element (read byte) the vote-result
of one delegate. This means that the structure can hold information for
VT_C_MAX_RESULT_DELEGATE delegates. When there are more
Bosch Security Systems | 2013 March
DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1
en | 128
delegates in the system you cannot use this way of receiving.
Compressed
The ‘byDelegateVotes’ holds for each element (read byte) the vote-result
of two (2) delegates. Using the compressed way of receiving results the
structure can hold 2 * VT_C_MAX_RESULT_DELEGATE delegates,
which is large enough to hold all delegates.
However the vote-result is now stored in the upper or lower nibble of a
byte. This implies that the total number of possible answers is limited to
14 answers (2 answer values are always reserved for ‘not-present’ and
‘present-and-not-voted’). This limitation of the number of answers inhibits
certain voting-kinds, which are not discussed further in this document.
Note that the parliamentary type of voting only uses 3 answer-options.
As a result of both restrictions we can take the conclusion that we cannot receive the voting result of
voting-kinds, which use more that 14 answer options and if the system holds more than
VT_C_MAX_RESULT_DELEGATE delegates.
Delegate voting result organization
The delegate voting results are organized in a list of delegate’s, whereby the DelegateId is used as
index in the list. The complete list is stored in the ‘byDelegateVotes’ array using either normal or
compressed storage.
Because the DelegateId is used as index within the list, the minimum length of the list is equal to the
highest DelegateId present in the downloaded delegate-database. This implies that the list may
contain holes in the DelegateId-numbering. For each not used DelegateId in of the delegatedatabase, the voting result is set to VT_C_VOTE_UNASSIGNED.
Example: The downloaded delegate-database consists of the DelegateId’s 1, 2, 3 and 8. This
implies that the highest DelegateId’s is equal to 8 and therefore the list gets the length of 8 delegates.
For each DelegateId not in the delegate-database (DelegateId’s 4-7) the voting result is set to
VT_C_VOTE_UNASSIGNED. The other used DelegateId’s can get the following values (for
Parliamentary Voting type with 3 answers):
VT_C_VOTE_NOT_VOTED
VT_C_VOTE_YES
VT_C_VOTE_NO
VT_C_VOTE_ABSTAIN
VT_C_VOTE_NPPV
The delegate is present, but has not casted a vote (yet).
The delegate is present and has casted the ‘Yes’ vote.
The delegate is present and has casted the ‘No’ vote.
The delegate is present and has casted the ‘Abstain’ vote.
The delegate is present and has chosen the ‘NPPV’ vote.
Note that for the result values only the lower nibble is used when the voting result is stored in the
‘byDelegateVotes’ array using the compressed storage form.
8.1.5 Default settings voting application
As mentioned in the sections above, setting of the voting application can be changed using remote
functions. But after successfully executing the VT_C_START_APP remote function, the remote
controller could directly start a voting round without first setting the subject and/or voting parameters
(global and voting kind).
In this particular case the voting is started with the settings as present during the standalone
operation of the voting application. During power-on of the DCN Next Generation-system all settings
will get their default values. When a remote controller already had called remote voting functions,
some setting still have their last values as set by that remote controller (see also §8.1.5.1). The
default (power-on) values for the remote functions are:
Voting subject
The voting number is set to zero and the subject text and legend texts
are set to empty strings. In C-source lines:
wVotingNumber = VT_C_STANDALONE_VOTING;
szVotingSubject = “”;
szLegendSubject = “”;
This means that there is no subject text available on the unit LCD’s.
More information about the parameters can be found in section
8.2.2.7.
Voting parameters
Bosch Security Systems | 2013 March
The voting parameters consist of various parameters which have the

following default values:
wVotingMenu = VT_C_MENU_YES_NO_ABSTAIN;
wNrOfAnswerOptions = 3;
bOpenVoting = FALSE;
wInterimResultType = VT_C_INT_RES_NONE;
More information about the parameters can be found in section
8.2.2.8.
General voting
settings
The general voting settings consists of many parameters which have
the following default values:
wVotingLedMode = VT_C_LED_SHOWVOTE;
wPresentVotes = VT_C_100_PRESENT_KEY;
bShowVoteTimer = FALSE;
wVoteTimerLimit = 0;
bReserved1 = FALSE;
bAutoAbstain = FALSE;
bReserved2 = TRUE;
bVoteWeightingOn = FALSE;
bReserved3 = FALSE;
bFirstVoteCount = FALSE;
More information about the parameters can be found in section
8.2.2.9.
8.1.5.1 Standalone settings
During startup of the DCN Next Generation-system (power-on) the voting settings are set to their
initial values as described in §8.1.5.
However, when the DCN Next Generation-system was controller by a Remote Controller, and new
settings were enabled. After stopping the voting application (Call to function VT_C_STOP_APP)
some voting settings remain active during the standalone period. These settings are:
Parameters
Value
VT_C_SET_GLOBAL_SETTING remote function
wVotingLedMode
This setting remains unchanged.
wPresentVotes
In case VT_C_100_AUTHORISED_VOTES was
selected, the value of ‘wPresentVotes’ will change
to VT_C_100_VALID_VOTES.
For the others of ‘wPresentVotes’, the settings
remains unchanged.
bFirstVoteCounts
This setting remains unchanged.
All other settings will return to their default values as described in §8.1.5.
The settings remain valid until either the power is turn off, or a remote controller is started, which
changes the settings.
8.1.6 Allowed settings without delegate-database present
The standard use of the voting application will be in combination with a downloaded delegatedatabase.
However, it is possible to start a voting round without a downloaded delegate-database. In this case
the parameter value ranges are limited, because some settings require the presence of a delegatedatabase.
In the table below an overview is given of the parameters with reduced setting due to the absence of
the delegate-database. The table shows the parameters of the remote functions
VT_C_SET_VOTINGPARAMS and VT_C_SET_GLOBAL_SETTINGS. When a parameter is not
present in the table, the value range, as described with the remote function, remains valid.
Parameters

chapter 4).
FALSE
The voting is not weighted. Each delegate has the
weight of 1 (one).
bReserved3
Must be set to FALSE.
bFirstVoteCount
If this setting is set to TRUE, delegates do not have the
opportunity to change their vote when they have already cast a
vote for the current vote round.
Note that a TRUE value of the parameter disables the value of
the parameter bAutoAbstain. bAutoAbstain is then always
considered to be FALSE.
In the following table is described how the led-option operates:
wVotingLedMode
Description
VT_C_LED_SHOWVOTE
The LED’s next to the softkeys represents the last
casted vote done.
VT_C_LED_SECRET_ON_OFF
When a delegate casts his vote, all soft LED’s will be on
for about 1 second and then they will be turned off.
VT_C_LED_SECRET_FLASH_ON
When a delegate casts his vote, all soft LED’s will be
flashing for about 2 seconds and then they will be
turned on.
In the following table is described how the number of ‘Present’ and ‘Not Voted’ delegates is
determined:
wPresentVotes
Description
VT_C_100_PRESENT_KEY
No database present:
Every unit is prompted for present
Database is present:
All delegates who have voting authorization
and a unit are asked to press the present
key (softkey 1) before they can vote.
The number of present delegates is equal
to the delegates who have pressed the
present key. When a delegate has pressed
his present key, the number of ‘Not Voted’
delegates will be increased with 1. When a
delegate cast a vote, the number of ‘Not
Voted’ will be decreased with 1.
The number of ‘Present’ delegates is equal
to the number of delegates who have
casted a vote.
The number of ‘Not Voted’ delegates is
always equal to 0.
The number of ‘Present’ delegates is equal
to the number of delegates who have
voting authorization. The number of ‘Not
VT_C_100_VALID_VOTES
VT_C_100_AUTHORISED_VOTES
Bosch Security Systems | 2013 March
en | 138
DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1
Voted’ delegates is equal to the number of
‘Present ’ delegates as long as nobody
casts a vote. When a delegate’s
functionality for voting is not authorized he
will not be counted for the vote round.
VT_C_100_PRESENT_KEY_AND_FRAUD
VT_C_100_EXTERNAL_PRESENT
All delegates have to press both the
present key and the fraud switch at the
same time before actually casting a vote.
Only delegates that pressed both keys will
count.
All delegates have to activate the external
present contact before actually casting a
vote. Only delegates that activated the
external present contact will count.
Note that this functionality of ‘wPresentVotes’ depends on the use of the delegate database, the
external contact and/or the attendance application, see chapter 3, 4 and 9 for more information.
Note: If the Attendance application is started, but nothing is activated, all delegates have voting
authorization.

Each description consists of the following items:
• Purpose
A global description of the purpose of the notification.
• Notify structure with this update
The information passed with the update notification.
• Related functions
The related function in conjunction with the notification described.
8.3.2.1 Unit/User Event relations
The voting application controls on the CCU a voting round and passes the results back to the units,
the hall-display and to the remote controller (depending on the different settings made).
This section gives information about the events coming from the units and the processing done for
the events. In the table below an overview is made about the events and the actions performed.
Event

The marker “votes_changed” is checked. When set the update
notification VT_C_RESULTSNOTIFY is sent to the remote
controller. Finally the marker is reset.
8.3.3 Voting notifications
8.3.3.1 VT_C_RESULTSNOTIFY
Purpose
Notify the remote controller with the total and individual results of the delegates who participate in the
current running voting. These results will be sent every 2 seconds by the DCN Next Generation
system if changes have been detected. Further it depends on parameters in the VT_C_START_APP
and VT_C_SET_VOTINGPARAMS functions. In the following table is described under which
circumstances this notification is sent:
Parameters

Note also that if ‘bResultNotify’ is set to TRUE this notification is sent to the Remote Controller after a
hold or stop of the voting round.
Notify structure with this update
The update comes with the structure VT_T_RESULT_REC. The structure is defined in section
8.1.4.1
Note that only the totals are sent to the remote controller. This ‘wFillLevel’ parameter of the structure
(which holds the number of individual delegate information present in the ‘byDelegateVotes’ array)

9. ATTENDANCE REGISTRATION AND ACCESS CONTROL
9.1 Internal functioning of Attendance registration
9.1.1 Introduction
The Attendance Registration application is divided into three closely related parts:
a. Attendance registration
b. Access control
c. Delegate identification
In the following section an explanation is given about the three parts.
Note that if the attendance registration application is not active in the CCU, however the authority
settings as present in the delegate database are used to accept or reject actions of the delegates.
For example, when a delegate has no Voting authority, he will not be requested to cast his vote.
The authority settings are part of the delegate database, which should be downloaded using the
remote functions as described in chapter 4.
9.1.1.1 Attendance registration
Attendance registration is an application that allows the remote controller to keep track of the
delegates present in the system. To accomplish this the delegate must register himself present by
using one of the selectable options:
• Pressing his ‘Present key’ on his unit. (No leave option)
• Activating the external ‘present’ contact. (No leave option)
• Entering his PIN Code on his unit. (No leave option)
• Inserting his ID-card in his or any unit. To leave he withdraws the ID-card.
• Inserting his ID-card in the entrance-unit of the system. To leave he has to insert his IDcard in the exit-unit of the system.
One of the above options is selectable for registration of a delegate.
Note 1: Activating the external ‘present’ contact will act the same as pressing the ‘Present key’.
Note 2: The use of the ID-card can, as an extra option, be combined with entering a pin-code.
Note 3: The ID-card insertion in a unit can be selected to be in his own unit only (fixed seating) or in
any unit of the system (free seating). In the latter situation the attendance application
connects the current seat to the delegate. The new seat-delegate combination is used within
the system.
The attendance registration application keeps track of the delegate, which enters the system
(become present) and leaves the system (become absent). The differences (if any) are reported to
the remote controller every second.
9.1.1.2 Access Control
Access Control keeps track of the delegate's accessibility for the applications Microphone
Management, Intercom and Voting as stored in the delegate database. Note that the content of the
delegate database is controlled by the remote functions available in the System Configuration
application. More information can be found in chapter 3.
A delegate can get control for an application (if he has access according to the authority settings in
the delegate database) using one of the following options:
• Entering his PIN Code on his unit.
• Inserting his ID-card in his or any unit.
• Inserting his ID-card in the entrance-unit to get access for his seat as stored in the
delegate database. Inserting the ID-card in the exit-unit disables the accessibility.
One of the above options is selectable for access control.
Note:
The use of the ID-card can, as an extra option, be combined with entering a pin-code.
Bosch Security Systems | 2013 March
en | 143
DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1
The Access Control options are set in combination with the attendance registration options.
9.1.1.3 Delegate Identification
This functionality provides information about what delegate is seating on which unit. Delegate
Identification, i.e. location information, is available as a result of inserting ID Cards in and/or
withdrawing them from units. For this functionality neither the attendance registration nor the access
control process need to be active. The only restriction is that a names file should be downloaded.
When the location of a delegate is determined, the new location is sent to the remote controller. The
Delegate Identification functionality keeps track of the location where a delegate is located. The
differences (if any) are reported to the remote controller every second.
For Delegate Identification two definitions can be made:
• Located delegate
a delegate, which resides on a unit.
• Dislocated delegate
a delegate, which doesn’t reside on a unit yet.
A delegate who is assigned a seat in the current names file is using that seat, unless that delegate
inserts his card in another unit. In those cases the delegate is a located delegate. If another delegate
inserts his card in that particular unit, the delegate who resides default on that unit will become a
dislocated delegate.
When a delegate withdraws his card, the delegate will be assigned to his default unit if nobody else is
using that unit and the delegate who has withdrawn his card has no pending request to speak, else
he will become a dislocated delegate.
The delegate who is by default assigned to the unit from which the card was withdrawn will be
assigned to that unit again if the delegate itself is a dislocated delegate. If the delegate is a located
delegate, nobody will be assigned to that unit.
9.1.1.4 Combination Attendance and Access
From the previous sections it will be clear that the settings for attendance registration and access
control are combined, because the ways to register and to get access are the same for both parts of
the application.
Due to the combination of the settings of the two parts there are some restrictions:
• When the ‘Present key’ (or the external ‘present’ contact) is selected to gain attendance,
Access Control cannot be activated.
• When delegates may sit on any chair (Free seating), attendance registration using the
‘Present key’ (or the external ‘present’ contact) is not possible. Also registration and/or
Access Control using the PIN Code is not possible with this setting.
9.1.2 Functioning with parameters
When starting with the attendance application we must use parameters to set the different options.
According to the settings made, several events can occur with the DCN NG system, which influences
the presence and access of a delegate.
In this section we define the parameters and create a matrix that defines the changes when a certain
event within the system occurs.
9.1.2.1 State definitions
The state definitions define the current state of a delegate in the DCN NG system. There will be a
state definition per combination of the different settings. The following states are defined:
State item
Value set
Presence
Present or Absent
Location
Located or Anywhere
Authorization
Functioning or Blocked
Note 1: Presence is a delegate status identifying if a delegate is present or not.
Location is a delegate status, which reflects on which unit the delegate resides.
Authorization is a status identifying if a unit may be used or not by the delegate that currently
resides on this unit.
Bosch Security Systems | 2013 March
DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1
en | 144
Note 2: When a delegate is marked 'Functioning', the application authorization stored in the delegate
database controls whether access is allowed.
9.1.2.2 Events definitions
The event definitions shown in the table below are all the events that can influence the presence,
authorization or location of a delegate.
Event
Initial / Unit connected
Unit disconnected
Present key
PIN Code
Insert card in seat
Remove card from seat
Insert card in Entrance
Insert card in Exit
Explanation
Initial state after activation of settings or state after unit
connection
Unit disconnects
Present key pressed on presence menu (or activating the
external present-contact)
PIN Code is successfully entered using the soft-keys
This can either be:
• PIN Code entered after ID Card insertion (ID Card plus PIN
code control)
• PIN Code entered directly (PIN Code control)
Insert Card in delegate/chairman unit, check if card is inserted
in the correct unit and if no other card with the same card code
is already present in another unit, check pin code if necessary
Remove card from seat after successful "Insert card in seat"
Insert Card in Entrance unit, check if card in no other unit,
check PIN Code if necessary
Insert Card in Exit unit, check if card in no other unit, check PIN
Code if necessary
9.1.2.3 Parameter definitions
Besides the ability to turn on and off the two parts of the attendance application the following
parameters are available for setting the options.
Parameter
SeatAttend
SeatAccess
ControlType
Explanation
Determine where the registration must take place. On the seatunit or on the entrance/exit units.
Determine if access is allowed on just one seat (as stored in the
names file) or on any seat. Seat access ‘None’ means that no
names file is currently opened.
Determine how the delegate must register himself to the system.
Possible options are: Present Key, Present Contact, PIN Code, ID
Card and ID Card plus PIN Code.
9.1.2.4 Event / state matrix
The table on the next page presents the event / state matrix for the different settings of the
parameters. ‘Present Contact’ will react the same as ‘Present Key’.

The notes mentioned in the table are:
1. There are several rows showing the same states on the same events (e.g., Attendance Off, Access On and Seat Attend on Entrance-Exit units is
functional the same for both Seat Access on One-seat and Seat Access on Any-seat). Although it seems doubled information, all allowed combinations
are shown, amongst others to understand the changes in settings.
2. Initial State, No change at connection of the unit.
3. The delegate must be present to come to this state, otherwise no acceptation.
Combinations of settings that are not present in the table are not allowed.
Bosch Security Systems | 2013 March
en | 147
DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1
In case that no delegate database is downloaded into the CCU settings for ID-card or PIN Code are not possible. There is simply no information about which
delegate has which ID-card or PIN Code.
Therefore, when no delegate database is downloaded into the CCU, only one event / state combination is legal:
Attendance

Seat Attend
Seat Access

Note that in this situation the activation of the present-key only registers the seat, because the system does not know which delegate should be seated on
that seat. Thus, in this specific situation no delegate/unit information will be sent to the remote controller. Only the total number of present reports is sent.

9.2 Remote Functions
9.2.1 Introduction
This chapter describes the various remote functions needed to control the attendance
registration application inside the CCU. A global description of the remote function handling is
described in chapter 2.
The CCU can operate in multiple modes. The use of the AT remote function is restricted to the
“Congress Mode”. An overview of modes can be found in chapter 3.
9.2.1.1 Remote function item explanation
Each description consists of the following items:
• Purpose
A global description of the purpose of the function.
• Parameter structure for the function
The input parameters needed to fulfil the function. When the function requires no
parameters, no structure is described here.
• Response structure from the function
The output information coming from the function called. This information is only valid when
the ‘wError’ field of the received response information equals AT_E_NOERROR.
• Error codes returned
The error values returned in the ‘wError’ field of the response information. All possible error
codes are described in Appendix C Error Codes.
• Update notifications
The update notifications that are generated during the execution of the remote function.
When there are no notifications generated, then this part will be omitted.
• Related functions
The related function in conjunction with the function described. It refers to other remote
functions and to related update notifications.
9.2.2 Attendance/Access functions
9.2.2.1 AT_C_START_AT_APP
Purpose
Indicate the CCU that the remote controller wants to communicate with the AT application
inside the CCU. Depending on the control-type passed the remote controller gets the
opportunity to start attendance registration and/or access control. When no control is needed,
but the remote controller likes to know which delegates are present (i.e. for microphone
display information), the remote controller can monitor the presence changes from the CCU.
When you omit the execution of this remote function, all other remote functions have no effect
and will return an error.
Parameter structure for the function
The function requires the following structure as parameters.
typedef struct
{
BYTE byRemoteControlType;
} AT_T_APPCONTROL;
where:
byRemoteControlType
Identify what function the remote controller likes to perform in
combination with the attendance application. Valid values are:
• AT_C_APP_CONTROL
Bosch Security Systems | 2013 March
The remote controller likes to have full
control over the attendance registration
en | 149
DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1
application. This full control implies the
right to change the attendance
registration settings.
• AT_C_APP_MONITOR
The remote controller only wants to
monitor the presence changes. No
control of the settings is allowed.
Note that the second start of the application (without a stop) always results in an error. This
implies that you cannot change from ‘control’ to ‘monitor’ mode by calling the
AT_C_START_AT_APP again. You have to call the function AT_C_STOP_AT_APP first to
stop the previous mode.
Response structure from the function
The function has no response parameters.
Error codes returned
AT_E_NOERROR
AT_E_INCONTROL_OTHER_CHANNEL
AT_E_INCONTROL_THIS_CHANNEL
AT_E_INMONITOR_THIS_CHANNEL
AT_E_ILLEGAL_CONTROL_TYPE
Related functions
AT_C_STOP_AT_APP
9.2.2.2 AT_C_STOP_AT_APP
Purpose
Indicate the CCU that the remote controller no longer requires to communicate with the AT
application inside the CCU. When the remote controller which has the control ability stops the
communication, the CCU takes over the control for AT and turns attendance registration and
access control off if they were still on.
Note:
Upon a communication lost this function will be activated, if AT_C_START_AT_APP
was activated.
Parameter structure for the function
The function has no additional parameters.
Response structure from the function
The function has no response parameters.
Error codes returned
AT_E_NOERROR
AT_E_APP_NOT_STARTED
Related functions
AT_C_START_AT_APP
9.2.2.3 AT_C_STORE_SETTING
Purpose
This function allows the remote controller to pass the new setting for attendance registration
and access control to the attendance registration application on the CCU. The attendance
registration application checks the validity of the parameters passed and stores the new
settings.
Note:
This function may only be called if both attendance registration and access control are
off. See the AT_C_ACTIVATE function (§9.2.2.4).
Parameter structure for the function
The function requires the following structure as parameter:
typedef struct
{
BYTE
bySeatAttend;
BYTE
bySeatAccess;
Bosch Security Systems | 2013 March
en | 150
DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1

byControlType;
} AT_T_SETTINGS;
where:
bySeatAttend
Identify on which type of unit attendance registration will take
place. The setting is one of the following:
• AT_C_SEAT
• AT_C_ENTRANCE_EXIT
bySeatAccess
Identify if a delegate can only use his own assigned unit or also
another unit. The setting is one of the following:
• AT_C_ANY_SEAT
• AT_C_ONE_SEAT
byControlType
Identify how attendance registration and/or access control will
take place. The setting is one of the following:
•
•
•
•
•
AT_C_PRESENTKEY
13
AT_C_PRESENTCONTACT
AT_C_PINCODE
AT_C_IDCARD

The function has no response parameters.
Error codes returned
AT_E_NOERROR
AT_E_APP_NOT_STARTED
AT_E_STORE_SETTING_FAILED
AT_E_CHANGE_NOT_ALLOWED
AT_E_NOT_INCONTROL
Related functions
AT_C_ACTIVATE
AT_C_HANDLE_IDENTIFICATION
9.2.2.4 AT_C_ACTIVATE
purpose
This function allows the remote controller to start/stop attendance registration and/or access
control. As long as attendance registration and/or access control is on, the CCU will send
update notifications of type AT_C_SEND_TOTAL_REGISTRATION to the remote controller.
Update notifications are sent upon state changes due to actions from the delegates on the
units.
Parameter structure for the function
The function requires the following structure as parameter:
typedef struct
{
BOOLEAN
BOOLEAN
} AT_T_ACTIVATE;
bAttendanceOn;
bAccessOn;
where:
bAttendanceOn
Indication if attendance registration must be on or off

9.2.2.5 AT_C_HANDLE_IDENTIFICATION
Purpose
This function allows the remote controller to do the registration with his own equipment. After
the local registration on the remote controller, he should pass the registered delegate to the
DCN NG system.
The registration from the remote controller emulates the insertion of the ID-card in the
entrance- or exit- unit. Therefore the ID-card code and (optional) the PIN-code must be
passed along with this function.
Note that both the ID-card-codes and the PIN-codes are downloaded from the remote
controller into the CCU during the download of the delegate database (see chapter 4 for
details).
Together with the registration of the delegates, at the unit, on which the delegate resides, all
LED’s will be turned on if the delegate becomes present. The LED’s are turned off again when
the delegate is registered absent.
Parameter structure for the function
The function requires the following structure as parameter:
typedef struct
{
WORD
wEvent;
WORD
wFillLevel;
AT_T_DEL_IDENTIFICATION tDelIdenfication [AT_C_MAX_REGISTRATION];
} AT_T_IDENTIFICATION_REC;
where the AT_T_DEL_IDENTIFICATION is defined as:
typdef struct
{
DWORD
dwCardCode;
WORD
wPinCode;
} AT_T_DEL_IDENTIFICATION;
where:
wEvent
Identify on which type of unit attendance registration will take
place. The setting is one of the following:
• ACSC_EVENT_INSERT_CARD_ENTRANCE
• ACSC_EVENT_INSERT_CARD_EXIT
wFillLevel
Number of delegates in tDelIdentification (ranges from 1 to
AT_C_MAX_REGISTRATION). If more than
AT_C_MAX_REGISTRATION delegates should be registered this
function must be called more than once.
tDelIdentification []
Structure containing the delegate identification.
Bosch Security Systems | 2013 March
en | 152
DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1
dwCardCode
ID-Card code of the delegate that should be
registered. Valid ID-card codes are in the range 1MAX_CARD_CODE (the ID-card code must be
unique for every delegate in the DCN NG system).
wPinCode
PIN-code of the delegate hat should be registered.
The PIN-code is only used when the ‘Control-Type’ is
set to the value AT_C_IDCARD_PINCODE (see
§9.2.2.3)
Valid PIN-codes are in the range 111-55555, whereby
each digit must be in the range of 1-5. Set the field
wPinCode to 0 (zero) if PIN-codes are not used.
The number of digits to be used is also stored into the
delegate database. (PIN-codes do not have to be
unique.)
This function will handle the request only if the function AT_C_STORE_SETTINGS is called
before with the settings:
bySeatAttend
AT_C_ENTRANCE_EXIT
bySeatAccess
AT_C_ONE_SEAT
byControlType
AT_C_IDCARD
or
AT_C_IDCARD_PINCODE
and the function AT_C_ACTIVATE is called before to activate either Attendance Registration
or Access Control or both.

9.2.2.6 AT_C_GET_INDIV_REGISTRATION
Purpose
This function allows the remote controller to retrieve the current registration status of each
individual delegate. The function is meant for remote controllers who called the function
AT_C_START_AT_APP with AT_C_APP_MONITOR as control type while attendance
registration and/or access control was already activated.
The function enables the remote controller to create his own start-up status of the delegate
registrations, which is to be used to handle the registration changes, send by the application
specific update notifications.
Parameter structure for the function
The function requires the following structure as parameter:
typedef struct
{
Bosch Security Systems | 2013 March

DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1
WORD
wClusterIndex;
} AT_T_GET_REGISTRATION;
where:
wClusterIndex
An index that indicates which cluster of delegate registration
information is to be retrieved. When wClusterIndex is 0 (zero),
the response structure contains the first cluster, with a
maximum of AT_C_MAX_DELEGATE, of delegate registration
information. When wClusterIndex is 1 (one), the second cluster
is returned etc.
Response structure from the function
The function returns the following structure:
typedef struct
{
WORD
wFillLevel;
AT_T_DEL_ATTEND
tDelegate[AT_C_MAX_DELEGATE];
} AT_T_REGISTER_INDIV;
where the AT_T_DEL_ATTEND is defined as:

WORD
wDelegateId;
BYTE
byAttend;
} AT_T_DEL_ATTEND;
where:
wFillLevel
Number of delegates in tDelegate (maximum of
AT_C_MAX_DELEGATE)
If wFillLevel is less than AT_C_MAX_DELEGATE, then the last
cluster with delegate registration information is returned.
tDelegate
Structure containing the delegate information.
wUnitId
Unit on which the delegate is located. The wUnitId
can be the value DBSC_EMPTY_UNIT when the
delegate is not located anywhere.
wDelegateId
Delegate for which the presence status is given.
byAttend
Presence status of the delegate. The setting is one
of the following:
•
•
•
•
•
AT_C_NOSTATUS
AT_C_ATTEND
AT_C_LEAVE

Internally it is possible that a delegate, which is already present, will be registered present
again. In this case he inserts his ID-card in another unit, which implies that the delegate
changed seat. This seat change is also reported to the remote controller using this update
notification. His status will then be changed to AT_C_ATTEND_NOCHANGE to inform that
the ‘presence’ has not changed. The same situation can occur when the delegate has already
left the system.

10. TEXT & STATUS DISPLAY FOR A REMOTE INTERFACE
10.1 Introduction
The Text & Status Display Remote Interface is part of the DCN Next Generation software that
allows for another controlling entity outside the CCU, not being the DCN Next Generation
Control PC, to use the Text & Status Display application.
10.1.1 Remote Text & Status Display Control
Text & Status Display is the application that provides a means of displaying conference-related
information on character displays located in the conference venue. Typical configuration issues
are e.g.: storing display settings, clearing displays etc. More details on the complete LD
application can be found in the user manual [USERDOC_LD].
Configuring Text & Status Display with a remote interface is achieved by means of calling a
defined set of Remote Functions and acting upon a defined set of Update Notifications. The
general concept of Remote Functions and Update Notifications is described in chapter 2. This
chapter also describes the protocol and hardware conditions concerning the remote interface.
Together with this remote interface, there are at the moment two locations in a fully connected
CCU where LD can be influenced. These locations are:
• A remote controller (which can be the control PC) connected using an Ethernet (in case of
MCCU) or RS-232 (in case of SCCU) connection. This remote controller uses Remote
Function calls to configure Text & Status Display.
• Updates in applications for which LD displays text and/or status (MM, VT and MD) may
lead to updates in text/status displays and/or update notifications (depending on the
configuration)
To get a fully operational system the remote controller must register itself to the CCU, in order
for it to receive update messages from the CCU.
Remote functions coming from the remote controller can indirectly initiate an update in the
CCU. During the update, notifications are generated and sent to the remote controller.
Unit and user events causing changes in applications MM, VT and MD can lead to LD update
notifications in the CCU. Depending on the configuration of LD, update notifications may be
sent to the remote controller.
During the processing of remote functions on the CCU, update messages may be created and
transmitted. This implies that the response information of a remote function can be received
after the reception of an update notification. The remote controller must wait for the response
of the remote function. After reception of the response appropriate action should be taken
upon the error code returned. The notifications received during the wait for the response may
be processed directly. See chapter 2 for details on this mechanism.
This document gives the set of Remote Functions and the set of Update Notifications
concerning Text & Status Display. The (indirect) relation between Remote Function, sent by
the remote controller, and Update Notifications is given in the description of each separate
Remote Function. The (indirect) relation between unit events and Update Notifications (and
the configuration needed to enable these updates) is given in section 6.3.1.2.

10.3.1.2 Unit/user event relations
As mentioned in section 5.1.1, update notifications may not only be the result of remote
functions generated by the remote controller, but can also be the result of unit/user events. It
was also mentioned in section 5.1.1 that the relation between the unit/user events and the
update notifications is indirect (i.e. asynchronous).
This section gives information about the situations which will lead to the update notification
LD_C_SEND_ANUM_DATA. The situations for all applications that can be enabled are
explained. Note that the notifications are only generated for the alphanumerical displays (i.e.
LD_C_DISPLAY_TWO and LD_C_DISPLAY_THREE), and they are only generated if the
application is enabled for the display (see 10.2.2.3).
MM application
The LD update notification may be sent when:
•
The speaker list changes
•
The request-to-speak list changes
MD application
The LD notification may be sent when:
•
A message is sent to hall displays
•
A message is cleared from hall displays
VT application
The LD notification may be sent when:
•
A voting session is started
•
During a voting, a vote is cast (or changed)
•
A voting session is stopped

11. MESSAGE DISTRIBUTION FOR A REMOTE INTERFACE
11.1 Introduction
The Message Distribution Remote Interface is part of the DCN software which allows for
another controlling entity outside the CCU, not being the DCN Control PC, to use the Message
Distribution application.
11.1.1 Remote Message Distribution Control
The Message Distribution application provides a means of generating and distributing text
messages in a DCN environment.
The message can be distributed to the following destinations:
•
Delegates
•
Interpreters
•
Conference hall displays
The user can specify exactly which delegates or interpreters the message has to be
distributed to. If the message has to be distributed to more than one destination, for example
delegates and interpreters, it is sent to each destination in turn. More details on the complete
MD application can be found in the user manual [USERDOC_MD].
Using MD with a remote interface is achieved by means of calling a defined set of Remote
Functions. The general concept of Remote Functions is described in chapter 2. This chapter
also describes the protocol and hardware conditions concerning the remote interface.
Together with this remote interface, there are up to two locations in a full-connected CCU
where MD can be influenced. These locations are:
• A remote controller (which can be the control PC) connected using an Ethernet (in case of
MCCU) or RS-232 (in case of SCCU) connection. This remote controller uses Remote
Function calls to configure Message Distribution.
• Delegate units on which the auxiliary button is pressed, or interpreter desks on which the
help or speak slowly key is pressed.
To get a fully operational system the remote controller must register itself to the CCU, in order
for it to receive update messages from the CCU.
The remote controller must wait for the response of the remote function. After reception of the
response appropriate action should be taken upon the error code returned.
Events coming from a unit (delegate or interpreter) are processed and the CCU is updated.
Some of the events lead to update notifications. The notifications are sent on by the CCU to
the remote controller.
This document gives the set of MD Remote Functions and the set of Update Notifications
concerning Message Distribution. The relation between unit events and Update Notifications is
given in section 11.3.1.2.

12. INTERCOM FOR A REMOTE INTERFACE
12.1 Introduction
The Intercom Remote Interface is part of the DCN NG software, which allows for another
controlling entity outside the CCU, not being the DCN NG Control PC, to use the Intercom
application.
12.1.1 Remote Intercom Control
Intercom is the application that allows for controlling intercom calls between delegates,
chairmen and interpreters during a conference. It allows several types of calls to be made:
•
From participant to operator, or vice versa
•
Between participants, via the operator or directly
•
From interpreter to operator, or vice versa
•
Between interpreters, via the operator or directly
•
From participant to interpreter, or vice versa, via the operator or directly.
More details on the complete IC application can be found in the user manual [USERDOC_IC].
Setting up and controlling intercom calls with a remote interface is by means of calling a
defined set of Remote Functions and acting upon a defined set of Update Notifications. The
general concept of Remote Functions and Update Notifications is described in chapter 2. This
chapter also describes the protocol and hardware conditions concerning the remote interface.
Together with this remote interface, there are up to three locations in a full-connected CCU
where IC can be influenced. These locations are:
• The remote interface or remote controller using the RS-232 interface. The remote
controller makes Remote Function calls for Intercom.
• The actual units that handle their intercom handset.
• The interpreter units that handle their intercom- or chairman-call button.
It is not possible to receive update notifications on both the remote controller and the DCN NG
Control PC.
During the processing of remote functions on the CCU, the update messages are created and
transmitted. This implies that the response information of a remote function can be received
after the reception of an update notification. The remote controller must wait for the response
of the remote function. After reception of the response appropriate action should be taken
upon the error code returned. The notifications received during the wait for the response may
be processed directly.
This document gives the set of Remote Functions and the set of Update Notifications
concerning Intercom. The relation between Remote Function, sent by the remote controller,
and Update Notifications is given in the description of each separate Remote Function. The

the proposed default seat.
10408
DB_E_PENDING_REQUEST
(0x28A8)
Setting/updating the Delegate Database failed because a delegate
with a pending Request to Speak was tried to delete from the
database.
Bosch Security Systems | 2013 March
en | 221
DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1
Database Query Services Error code
Explanation
DB_E_DELEGATE_DATA_BLOCKED
Updating the delegate database with the current
DB_T_PERDELEGATE structure failed.
DB_E_NO_DATABASE
The use of function DB_C_CCU_APPLY_ONE is not possible,
because currently there is no database present in the CCU.
DB_E_APP_NOT_STARTED
Value
(hex.)
10409
(0x28A9)
10410
(0x28AA)
10411
(0x28AB)
The remote controller has not called the DB_C_START_APP yet.
Therefore any remote function call to access the database fails with
this error.
10412
DB_E_INCONTROL_THIS_CHANNEL
(0x28AC)
The database is already under control by this remote controller (on
the same channel). Probably you have called the
DB_C_START_APP function twice.
10413
DB_E_INCONTROL_OTHER_CHANNEL
(0x28AD)
The DB_C_START_APP function could not finish successfully
because the database is already controlled by another remote
controller using another channel.
10414
DB_E_ILLEGAL_CONTROL_TYPE
(0x28AE)
The control-type passed to the function DB_C_START_APP is not
within range of valid values (see appendix 0 for the correct controltype values).
10415
DB_E_NOT_INCONTROL
(0x28AF)
The remote function is not allowed, because this remote controller
has no control over the delegate database.
10417
DB_E_WRONG_PARAMETER
(0x28B1)
Settings or a combination of settings is not correct.
Microphone Management Error code
Value
Explanation
0
MM_E_NOERROR
The execution of the remote function was successful.
2
MM_E_UNKNOWN_UNIT
The UnitId is unknown in the CCU.
5
MM_E_OPEN_CLOSE_FAILED
The internal database on the CCU was not able to update the total
use count for the MM application.
6
MM_E_UNIT_ALREADY_PRESENT
The unit to be added to the list (RTS or SPK) is already present in
that list.
8
MM_E_NOT_PRESENT
The record to search for in the list (Comment Request) is not
present in the list.
9
MM_E_UNIT_NOT_PRESENT
The unit to search for in the list (RTS or SPK) is not present in the
list.
Bosch Security Systems | 2013 March
DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1
Microphone Management Error code
Value
Explanation
15
MM_E_NOT_IN_SPL_OR_NOB
You tried to turn off a microphone of a unit, which was not present in
either the speakers list or the notebook list.
17
MM_E_ILLEGAL_MAX_ACT_MICS
The number provided for the maximum number of active
microphones is illegal with respect to the current Operation Mode.
Valid value for the mode
MM_C_OPERATOR_WITH_COMMENT_LIST is 1. Valid values for
the mode MM_C_DELEGATE_WITH_VOICE are within the range
2..4 and for all other modes in the range 1...4.
18
MM_E_ILLEGAL_MIC_OPER_MODE
The function requested is illegal for the current operation mode. The
function is not executed.
19
MM_E_UNKNOWN_UNITID_AND_DELID
You have provided a RTS list entry with both elements (UnitId and
DelegateId) set to empty values (DBSC_EMPTY_UNIT,
DBSC_EMPTY_DELEGATE). At least one of the elements must be
defined to fulfill the function.
21
MM_E_DELETE_RTS_LIST_FAILED
A delete of a RTS list entry in the internal database failed. Probably
illegal values for either the elements UnitId or DelegateId are
passed.
22
MM_E_INSERT_RTS_LIST_FAILED
The CCU was not able to insert the RTS list entry into the internal
database. Probably illegal values for either the elements UnitId or
DelegateId are passed.
24
MM_E_RTS_LIST_FULL
The RTS list is full. No more RTS entries can be added using the
function MM_C_RTS_APPEND.
25
MM_E_RTS_LIST_CHANGED
During a reduction of the maximum length of the RTS list, the
database was unable to retrieve the last RTS list entry. The actual
length is not changed. To recover this error; clear the RTS list, set
the new RTS list length and set the new contents in the RTS list.
26
MM_E_RTS_LIST_EMPTY
The RTS list is empty; therefore the function cannot be fulfilled. E.g.
remove on a RTS list entry on an empty RTS list.
27
MM_E_ILLEGAL_MAX_RTS_LIST_LEN
The maximum length provided for the RTS list is out of range. Valid
values for the RTS list length are within the range 0..100.
28
MM_E_RTS_LIST_TOO_BIG
The RTS list provided is too big to store it. None of the RTS entries
provided is put into the RTS list and the old RTS list remains active.
31
MM_E_DELETE_SPEAKERS_LIST_FAILED
A delete of a SPK list entry in the internal database failed. Probably
an illegal value for the element UnitId is passed.
32
MM_E_INSERT_SPEAKERS_LIST_FAILED
The CCU was not able to insert the SPK list entry into the internal
database. Probably an illegal value for the element UnitId is passed.
34

APPENDIX D. EXAMPLES
D.1. System Configuration
In the examples below the remote functions and update notifications, that are defined in this
document as constant values for the wFnId parameter of the message (see chapter 2), are
presented as functions described in a ‘C’ syntax. The parameter structures of these functions are
according the input, output or notify structures described in the appropriate section.
For every function is assumed that the function will create his structure, transport the parameters to
the CCU and waits for the result information coming from the CCU.
For both the remote functions as the update notifications the same names are used as their identifier,
but without the constant mark “C” and using mixed case names. So, e.g. remote function
SC_C_CONNECT_UNIT shall be referenced as function as:
SC_Connect_Unit (SC_T_UNIT_DATA tUnitData);
D.1.1. Assigning seats using global installation
This example shows how the remote controller can assign his seats to the unit-numbers present in
the conference hall.
Assumed is that the conference hall has a number of seats numbered starting with 1. For this
proposed installation one person must walk through the conference hall and press one of the softkeys on the units in order of the seats (starting with seat 1). On each unit a soft-key is only pressed
once.
For this seat assignment the global installation mode of the CCU will be used. Therefore we start with
activating that mode.
error = SI_Start_Install (SI_C_GLOBAL_INSTALL_MODE);
if (error != SI_E_NOERROR)
{
/* do error handling */
}
After this function the CCU is in global installation mode, all displays are off and no applications are
running.
We now initialize the current seat and unit-number, assuming seat numbers are chosen to be purely
numeric:
wCurrentSeatNumber = 1;
The system is now ready to accept the key-presses on the units in order of the seats. When a softkey is pressed the CCU sends a notification. During the processing of that function we select the unit
where the key is pressed, and assign the current seat number to the provided unit number.
This result in the following function:
void SI_Register_Unit (SI_T_UNIT_STRUCT *tUnitStruct)
{
/* First turn off the previous selected unit */
/* ........ */
error = SI_Select_Unit (tUnitStruct->wUnitId, TRUE);
if (error != SI_E_NOERROR)
{
/* do error handling */
}
/* assign the current seat to the unit */
MyAssignSeat (wCurrentSeatNumber, tUnitStruct->wUnitId);
/* Increment to the next seat */
wCurrentSeatNumber = wCurrentSeatNumber + 1;
/* and save the unitId to turn off during the assignment of the next seat */
Bosch Security Systems | 2013 March
DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1
en | 229
/* ........ */
}
Note that this function is only an example to shown how the interaction between update notifications
and remote functions can appear. For instance, when you press a soft-key the second time, this
function will fail. Better is to look if the selected unit has already a seat assigned. If not, the assign
and increment, if assigned, just keep the assignment.
When done with all seats present in the conference hall, we can leave the global installation mode.
This is done using the following sequence:
/* first turn off the last selected unit */
/* ........ */
error = SI_Stop_Install ();
if (error != SI_E_NOERROR)
{
/* do error handling */
}
This ends the global seat assignment. The remote controller has now a complete list of all seats and
their corresponding unit-numbers.
D.1.2. Replacing defective units during operation
This example shows how the remote controller can assign a seat to a unit in the conference hall,
which is replaced by a new unit (due to failure of the old unit).
Assumed is that previously all units have been assigned a seat-number on the remote controller.
After detecting that a unit fails, the following actions are performed by the technical staff of the
conference hall:
1. The defective unit is removed from the system. Note that disconnecting the unit also may
disconnect other (chained) units.
2. A new unit is inserted into the unit-chain and connected to the system.
3. The new unit is de-initialized, and initialized again to be sure that the added unit has no
address conflict with other units.
During these actions the following notifications are reported to the remote controller (assumed is that
the application SC is registered by the CCU:
• Microphone off notifications if any of the disconnected units has their microphone on or
had a pending request (present in the Request To Speak list).
• SC_C_DISCONNECT_UNIT for all units in the chain disconnected. The remote controller
remembers these units to disable the functionality.
• SC_C_CONNECT_UNIT for all units connected. Most of the unit-numbers are known in
the disconnect-list and can be restored (e.g. the functionality will be enabled). The new
unit(s) connected to the system is not known.
For these units the remote controller must start the operational installation mode. The operational
installation mode is activated using the following remote function request:
error = SI_Start_Install (SI_C_OPERATIONAL_INSTALL_MODE);
if (error != SI_E_NOERROR)
{
/* do error handling */
}
After this the CCU has enabled the operational installation mode. The remote controller can start the
sequence to assign the new unit-numbers to seats not yet assigned.
while (there are new units and unassigned seats)
{
WORD wUnitId;
wUnitId = First_new_unit_available;
/* select the unit */
Bosch Security Systems | 2013 March
DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1
en | 230
error = SI_Select_Unit (wUnitId, TRUE);
if (error != SI_E_NOERROR)
{
/* do error handling */
}
/* Let the operater determine which seat should be assigned to the selected
unit. Normally the operator will view which unit is flashing, checks the
seat-number and pass the seat-number found to the remote controller.
The seat-number is stored in the variable ‘wSeatNumber’
*/
/* assign the current seat to the unit */
MyAssignSeat (wSeatNumber, wUnitId);
/* assignment finished, deselect the unit */
error = SI_Select_Unit (wUnitId, FALSE);
if (error != SI_E_NOERROR)
{
/* do error handling */
}
}
After this sequence handling the newly added units are again assigned to seats. This also finished
the operational installation mode, so we can leave the installation mode.
error = SI_Stop_Install ();
if (error != SI_E_NOERROR)
{
/* do error handling */
}
The remote controller can now continue with operation.
D.2. Microphone Management
In the example below the remote functions and update notifications, that are defined in this document
as constant values for the wFnId parameter of the message (see chapter 2), are presented as
functions described in a ‘C’ syntax. The parameter structures of these functions are according the
input, output or notify structures described in the appropriate section.
For every function is assumed that the function will create his structure, transport the parameters to
the CCU and waits for the result information coming from the CCU.
For both the remote functions as the update notifications the same names are used as their identifier,
but without the constant mark “C” and using mixed case names. So, e.g. remote function
MM_C_SET_SETTINGS shall be referenced as function as:
MM_Set_Settings (MM_T_CCU_GLOBAL_SETTINGS tMMSettings);
D.2.1. Microphone Management Control
This example shows the minimum steps to be taken for controlling the MM application.
First we have to start the MM application inside the CCU.
WORD
wNrOfInstances;
error = MM_Start_MM(&wNrOfInstances);
if (error != MM_E_NOERROR)
{
/* do error handling */
}
else
{
switch (wNrOfInstances)
{
case 0 : /* something went wrong with registering for remote interface
Bosch Security Systems | 2013 March
DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1
en | 231
so, do error handling */
break;
case 1 : /* OK */
break;
default : /* 2 or more. This means there are more remote controllers
identified by the CCU. Stop as many times as needed */
WORD wNewNumber;
do
{
MM_Stop_MM(&wNewNumber);
} while (wNewNumber > 1);
break;
}
}
If there are no errors on starting the MM application the next thing we are interested in are the
settings. Assume that we want the system to operate in a Operator with RTS list mode, 4 active mics
and a maximum RTS list length of 50. The first thing to do is retrieve the current settings, then check
them against the wanted settings and, if they are not the same, set the new settings.
The results in the following control flow:
/* declare variables */
MM_T_CCU_GLOBAL_SETTINGS tMMSettings;
BOOLEAN
bMustSend = FALSE;
/* retrieve the current settings */
MM_Get_Settings(&tMMSettings);
/* and check if they are what we want */
if (tMMSettings.wOperationMode != MM_C_OPERATOR_WITH_REQ_LIST)
{
tMMSettings.wOperationMode = MM_C_OPERATOR_WITH_REQ_LIST;
bMustSend = TRUE;
}
if (tMMSettings.wActiveMics != 4)
{
tMMSettings.wActiveMics = 4);
bMustSend = TRUE;
}
if (tMMSettings.wMaxRTSListLen != 50)
{
tMMSettings.wMaxRTSListLen = 50;
bMustSend = TRUE;
}
/* Set new settings if we have to */
if (bMustSend)
{
error = MM_Set_Settings(&tMMSettings);
if (error != MM_E_NOERROR)
{
/* do error handling */
}
}
Setting new settings also results in an update notification, so the last thing to do is to check if our
settings are accepted by the CCU.
Therefore, we need the following function:
void MM_Set_Settings_On_Pc(MM_T_CCU_GLOBAL_SETTINGS tNotifiedSettings)
{
BOOLEAN bIdentical = FALSE;
/* assume we have a user defined function to compare both settings structures */
bIdentical = MyCompareSettings(tNotifiedSettings, tMMSettings);
Bosch Security Systems | 2013 March
DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1
en | 232
if (bIdentical == FALSE)
{
/*
If they are not the same:
Either update your local settings with the CCU settings
or try to set them again
*/
}
}
Once the settings are known, we could retrieve the current notebook-, speakers- and RTS list and
wait for the updates to monitor the microphone status in the conference hall, or send remote
functions to influence that status.
When the congress is finished we must tell the CCU that we stopped monitoring the MM application,
using the following function:
WORD
wNrOfInstances;
error = MM_Stop_MM(&wNrOfInstances);
if (error != MM_E_NOERROR)
{
/* do error handling */
}
else
{
switch (wNrOfInstances)
{
case 0 : /* OK */
break;
default : /* 1 or more. This means there are still remote controllers
identified by the CCU. Stop as many times as needed */
WORD wNewNumber;
do
{
MM_Stop_MM(&wNewNumber);
} while (wNewNumber != 0);
break;
This ends controlling the MM application. The remote controller and CCU can now safely be switched
off.
D.3. Camera Control
In the example below the remote functions and update notifications, that are defined in this document
as constant values for the wFnId parameter of the message (see chapter 2), are presented as
functions described in a ‘C’ syntax. The parameter structures of these functions are according the
input, output or notify structures described in the appropriate section.
For every function it is assumed that the function will create its structure, transport the parameters to
the CCU and wait for the result information coming from the CCU.
For both the remote functions and the update notifications the same names are used as their
identifier, but without the constant mark “C” and using mixed case names. So, e.g. remote function
CC_C_START_CAMERA_APP shall as function be referenced as:
CC_Start_Camera_App (void);
D.3.1. Controlling CC application
This example shows the minimum steps to be taken for controlling the CC application
First we have to start controlling the CC application on the CCU.

wError = CC_Start_Camera_App();
switch (wError)
{
case CC_E_INCONTROL_THIS_CHANNEL:
/* I have the CC app already under control */
/* Is that correct? Has the remote controller restarted? */
/* For the moment assume to be correct and continue */
break;
case CC_E_INCONTROL_OTHER_CHANNEL:
/* Another remote controller has control over the CC application */
/* report error and terminate */
........
break;
case CC_E_NOERROR:
/* function ended succesfully */
break;
default:
/* some unexpected error occurred, report the error */
........
break;
}
We have now established communication with the CC application on the CCU. Since controlling has
now started, update notifications may arrive. Therefore, we need the following functions:
void CC_Receive_Data(CC_T_DATA_FRAME tDataFrame)
{
/* Handle data of tDataFrame */
}
Assume that we want to activate camera activity. We then need the following functions and control
flow:
CC_T_CAMERA_ACTIVITY tCameraActivity;
tCameraActivity.bCameraActivity = TRUE;
WORD wError;
wError = CC_Set_Camera_Activity(&tCameraActivity);
if (wError != CC_E_NOERROR)
{
/* do error handling */
}
We can now send remote functions to configure camera control.
Bosch Security Systems | 2013 March
DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1
en | 234
When we no longer need to be able to send remote functions and receive update notifications we
can stop the communication with the CC application using the function:
wError = CC_Stop_Camera_App();
if (wError != CC_E_NOERROR)
{
/* do error handling */
}
This ends remotely controlling the CC application.
D.4. Simultaneous Interpretation
In the example below the remote functions and update notifications, that are defined in this document
as constant values for the wFnId parameter of the message (see chapter 2), are presented as
functions described in a ‘C’ syntax. The parameter structures of these functions are according the

We have now established communication with the IN application on the CCU. Since controlling has
now started, we could wait for the updates to monitor the interpreter desks status updates. Therefore,
we need the following functions:
void IN_Chan_Status(IN_T_CHAN_STATUS tNotifiedChanStatus)
{
/* copy the values of tNotifiedChanStatus to tChanStatus */
}
void IN_Ccu_Config(IN_T_CCU_CONFIG tNotifiedCcuConfig)
{
/* copy the values of tNotifiedCcuConfig to tCcuConfig /
}
void IN_Flashing_Mic_On(BOOLEAN bNotifiedFlashingWhenEngaged)

{
bSpeakSlowlySign = bNotifiedSpeakSlowlySign;
}
void IN_Help_Sign(BOOLEAN bNotifiedHelpSign)
{
bHelpSign = bNotifiedHelpSign;
}
Assume that we want a system with an interlock mode between booths IN_C_OVERRIDE and a
normal engaged Led indication. We can check these settings after having received the update
notifications and change them if needed. Therefore we need the following functions and control flow:
if (tCcuConfig.byBetweenLock != IN_C_OVERRIDE)
{
IN_T_UPDATE_LCK tUpdateLck;
tUpdateLck.wWithin = (WORD)tCcuConfig.byWithinLock;
tUpdateLck.byBetween = IN_C_OVERRIDE;
tUpdateLck.bEngaged = TRUE;
WORD wError;
wError = IN_Update_Lck(&tUpdateLck);
if (wError != IN_E_NOERROR)
{
/* do error handling */
}
else
{
/* update local administration */
tCcuConfig.byBetweenLock = IN_C_OVERRIDE;
}
}
Once the settings are known, we could wait for the updates to monitor the interpreter desks status
updates, or send remote functions to influence that status.
When we no longer need to be able to send remote functions and receive update notifications we
can stop the communication with the IN application using the function:
wError = IN_Stop_IN_App(&wNrOfInstances);
if (wError != IN_E_NOERROR)
{
/* do error handling */
}
This ends remotely controlling the IN application. Note that the value of wNrOfInstances can still be
larger than 0, if there still are registered remote monitors.
D.5. Voting
In the examples below the remote functions are seen as functions, which can be called. The
parameters passed to the function form the input parameter structure. When a function returns
information, the parameter list is finished with a structure parameter to store the information into.
Bosch Security Systems | 2013 March
en | 237
DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1
For every function is assumed that the function will create his structure, transport the parameters to
the CCU and waits for the result information coming from the CCU.
For update notifications is assumed that the examples create a (update) function that will be called
whenever the CCU has sent the notification.
For both the remote functions as the update notifications the same names are used as their identifier,
but without the constant mark “C”, some “_” and using mixed case names.
For example remote function VT_C_RESTART_VOTING shall be referenced as function as:
VT_RestartVoting ();
D.5.1. Running a vote round without update notifications
In this example we consider to have prepared a voting script holding multiple parliamentary voting
motions. Each motion is of the same kind with the following settings:
• Parliamentary with answer options “Yes”, “Abstain” and “No”
• The results will be collected using remote functions (initial we do not use the update
notifications) using compressed results.
• The first vote casted counts
• No voting timer will be used
• The Attendance application inside the CCU must decide which delegate may cast his
14
vote . This means that only authorized delegates may vote.
• The casted vote may not be visible by means of the soft-LED’s. After a vote the LED’s
must flash for several seconds and all LED’s must be turned on.
For the simplicity of this example we assume that there is no chairman unit present in the congress
hall (or if present, it will not be used to start or stop the voting). That is all controlling of the voting will
be done by the remote controller.
Declaration of parameters
For the C-example code we need parameters. In this part we declare the parameters used.
WORD wError;
Connecting to the voting application
First the remote controller must get the control of the VT application. Because we do not use the
update notifications, we directly can reduce the number of updates by turning off the automatic result
updates coming from the voting application. The time for showing the text “End of voting” after the
stop of a voting round will be set to 20 seconds. This results in the following function call:
WORD wError;
VT_T_COMCONTROL
tComControl;
tComControl.bResultNotify
= FALSE;
tComControl.bReserved
= FALSE;
tComControl.wViewTimeAfterStop = 20;
/* must be FALSE */
wError = VT_StartApp (&tComControl);
switch (wError)
/* Check the possible errors */
{
case VT_E_INCONTROL_THIS_CHANNEL:
/* I have the voting app already under control */
/* Is that correct? Is the remote controller restarted? */
/* For the moment assume to be correct and continue */
break;
case VT_E_INCONTROL_OTHER_CHANNEL:
/* Another remote controller has control over the voting application */
/* report error and terminate */
.........
14
Note that the interface to enable the attendance application is not described in this document. For information about
the attendance application and the use of the attendance interface see chapter 9.

break;
case VT_E_NOERROR:
/* function ended succesful, continue */
break;
default:
/* some unexpected error occurred. */
/* report the error */
.........
break;
}
We have now established communication with the voting application on the CCU and can start with
the preparation of the voting session.
Preparing the voting
For the preparation of the voting we must set the global settings, the voting parameters and the
subject of the first voting round to be started.
The setting of the global parameters is done in the code below:
VT_T_GLOBAL_SETTINGS
tGlobalSettings;
tGlobalSettings.wVotingLedMode
= VT_C_LED_SECRET_FLASH_ON;
tGlobalSettings.wPresentVotes = VT_C_100_AUTHORISED_VOTES;
/* AT decides who */
tGlobalSettings.bShowVoteTimer
= FALSE; /* we do not use the vote timer */
tGlobalSettings.wVoteTimerLimit
= 0;
tGlobalSettings.bReserved1
= FALSE;
/* Must be FALSE */
tGlobalSettings.bAutoAbstain = FALSE;
/* We are using firstVoteCounts, so false */
tGlobalSettings.bReserved2
= TRUE; /* Must be TRUE */
tGlobalSettings.bVoteWeightingOn
= FALSE; /* Everyone has the weight 1 */
tGlobalSettings.bReserved3
= FALSE;
/* Must be FALSE */
tGlobalSettings.bFirstVoteCount
= TRUE; /* the first cast of a delegate counts */
wError = VT_SetGlobalSettings (&tGlobalSettings);
if (wError != VT_E_NOERROR)
{
/* do error handling */
}
The second part of the preparation is setting the voting kind as used during all the vote rounds.
VT_T_VOTINGPARAMS
WORD
tVotingControl;
wIndex;
tVotingControl.wVotingMenu
= VT_C_MENU_YES_NO_ABSTAIN;
tVotingControl.wNrOfAnswerOptions
= 3;
/* Yes, No and Abstain */
tVotingControl.bOpenVoting
= TRUE; /* Individual results */
/* Only send the results to the remote controller */
tVotingControl.wInterimResultType
= VT_C_INT_RES_INDIV_PC_ONLY;
tVotingControl.bCompressedResults
= TRUE; /* results must be compressed */
wError = VT_SetVotingParams (&tVotingParams);
if (wError != VT_E_NOERROR)
{
/* do error handling */
}
These two calls finish the preparation for the voting session. We can now start each vote round till
the session is completed.
Running each vote round
For running the vote round we expect an external function present which collects the subject text for
the next voting. This external function returns TRUE if a new subject has been found and returns
FALSE when no more subjects are present. As subject legend we will use the fixed text “Voting”.
Bosch Security Systems | 2013 March
en | 239
DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1
For controlling the time mechanism and the interaction with the operator we use another two external
functions. The first function returns TRUE when a second has passed and the second function
returns TRUE when the operator has decided to stop the vote-round.
Another external function is assumed to store the voting result. This function accepts the voting
results as used for collecting the results from the CCU.
The function declarations are:
extern
extern
extern
extern
BOOLEAN MyFunction_GetSubject (WORD *wVotingNumber, CHAR *szSubject);
BOOLEAN MyFunction_SecondTick (void);
BOOLEAN MyFunction_OkToStopVoting (void);
void MyFunction_StoreResults (VT_T_RESULT_REC *tResults);
Because we are going to run multiple voting rounds, we must set up a looping mechanism:
VT_T_SUBJECT_REC
VT_T_RESULT_REC
tSubject;
tResults;
/* start the loop to run all voting rounds */
while (MyFunction_GetSubject (tSubject.wVotingNumber, tSubject.szVotingSubject))
{
We have now received the voting number and the voting subject. All we have to do is extend the
structure with the legend and pass the information to the CCU.
strcpy (tSubject.szLegendSubject,
“Voting”);
wError = VT_DownloadSubject (&tSubject);
If (wError != VT_E_NOERROR)
{
/* do error handling */
}
The subject is downloaded to the CCU. The CCU is now ready to start this voting round.
Let’s start the voting.
wError = VT_StartVoting ();
If (wError != VT_E_NOERROR)
{
/* do error handling */
}
/* no parameters */
The voting round is running.
During the run of the vote round the program must wait for the operator to stop the voting. In the
mean time we collect the voting results from the CCU and store them.
while ( ! MyFunction_OkToStopVoting ())
{
if (MyFunction_SecondTick ())
{
/* collect the interim results */
wError = VT_GetResults (&tResults);
If (wError != VT_E_NOERROR)
{
/* do error handling */
}
/* store the results */
MyFunction_StoreResults (&tResults);
}
}
Note that after the collection of the results the voting-number present in the result-structure should be
the same as set during the download of the subject.
The vote round should be finished by stopping the VT application on the CCU. We do not allow that
the results are shown on the units LCD’s, so no show-results.
wError = VT_StopVoting (FALSE);
If (wError != VT_E_NOERROR)
{
Bosch Security Systems | 2013 March
/* no parameters */
DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1
en | 240
/* do error handling */
}
After successful completion the final results are ready on the CCU to be collected. Note that the CCU
sends an update notification with the final results (if activated). But in this example we have stated
that we do not use the update notifications. Therefore we collect the final result using the remote
function.
wError = VT_GetResults (&tResults);
If (wError != VT_E_NOERROR)
{
/* do error handling */
}
/* store the results */
MyFunction_StoreResults (&tResults);
This completes the vote rounds, so we can start the next vote round to complete the voting session.
/* terminating the loop for each voting round */
}
Terminating the voting applications
After done all vote rounds we can stop the communication with the voting application using the
function:
wError = VT_StopApp ();
/* no parameters */
If (wError != VT_E_NOERROR)
{
/* do error handling */
}
D.6. Attendance Registration and Access Control
In the examples below the remote functions and update notifications, that are defined in this
document as constant values for the wFnId parameter of the message (see chapter 2), are
presented as functions described in a ‘C’ syntax. The parameter structures of these functions are
according the input, output or notify structures described in the appropriate section.
For every function is assumed that the function will create the required input parameter structure,
transport the parameters to the CCU and waits for the result information coming from the CCU.
For both the remote functions as the update notifications the same names are used as their identifier,
but without the constant mark “C”, some “_” and using mixed case names.
For example remote function AT_C_STORE_SETTING shall be referenced as function:
AT_StoreSetting (&tSettings);
D.6.1. Using Attendance Registration and Access Control
This example shows how the remote controller can perform attendance registration with the
entrance- and exit units by using ID Cards.
For this example we have defined the following DCN NG system:
•
•
•
•
A conference hall equipped with delegate units without ID-card readers
Entrance and Exit units are present.
The seat-assignment has been done by the remote controller.
A delegate database is downloaded into the CCU.
Using this system we like to use the ID-cards for registration and access control for all delegates.
Because the system does not have an ID-card reader in the units, we use card-readers in the
entrance- and exit units to register the delegates.
First the remote controller must register himself to the AT application.
error = AT_StartATApp (AT_C_APP_CONTROL);
switch (error)
Bosch Security Systems | 2013 March
DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1
en | 241
{
case AT_E_INCONTROL_THIS_CHANNEL:
/* I have the attendance registration app already under control */
/* Is that correct? Is the remote controller restarted? */
/* For the moment assume to be correct and continue */
.........
break;
case AT_E_INCONTROL_OTHER_CHANNEL:
/* Another remote controller has control over the attendance registration app */
/* report error and terminate */
.........
return;
case AT_E_INMONITOR_THIS_CHANNEL:
/* I tried to open the application for control, but it seems that I have the */
/* attendance registration application already opened for Monitoring attendance. */
/* report error and terminate */
.........
return;
case AT_E_NOERROR:
/* function ended succesful, continue */
break;
default:
/* some unexpected error occurred. */
/* report the error */
.........
break;
}
We now have control over the attendance registration application and may change the settings, but
first the input parameter structure must be filled in:
AT_T_SETTINGS
tSettings;
tSettings.bySeatAttend
tSettings.bySeatAccess
tSettings.byControlType
= AT_C_ENTRANCE_EXIT;
= AT_C_ONE_SEAT;
= AT_C_IDCARD;
error = AT_StoreSetting (&tSettings);
if (error != AT_E_NOERROR)
{
/* do error handling */
}
Starting attendance registration and access control will be done by calling the following function:
AT_T_ACTIVATE
tActivate;
tActivate.bAttendanceOn = TRUE;
tActivate.bAccessOn = TRUE;
error = AT_Activate (&tActivate);
if (error != AT_E_NOERROR)
{
/* do error handling */
}
The CCU is now running attendance registration and access control. When a delegate inserts his IDcard into an entrance unit, the AT application on the CCU sends an “individual registration” and “total
registration” notification.
This result in the following two functions:
Bosch Security Systems | 2013 March
en | 242
DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1
void AT_SendIndivRegistration (AT_T_REGISTER_INDIV *tIndivResults)
{
WORD wIndex;
/* get presence of delegates */
for (wIndex = 0; wIndex < tIndivResults->wFillLevel; wIndex++)
{
/* handle the presency of each delegate separately */
}
}
void AT_SendTotalRegistration (AT_T_REGISTER_TOTAL *tTotalResults)
{
/* update the local results with the new total present and absent information
CCU */
}
from the
When the remote controller is also equipped with a card-reader, then the delegates may use that
card-reader to register themselves. In that specific case the remote controller reads the ID-card and
registers the delegate to the Attendance application by using the AT_C_HANDLE_IDENTIFICATION
remote function.
For example when two delegates with card-code 16824 and 6823 have registered themselves using
the remote controller, the remote controller performs the following actions:
AT_T_IDENTIFICATION_REC tIdentification;
tIdentification.wEvent = ACSC_EVENT_INSERT_CARD_ENTRANCE;
tIdentification.wFillLevel
= 2;
tIdentification.tDelIdentification [0].dwCardCode = 16824;
tIdentification.tDelIdentification [0].wPinCode
= 0;
tIdentification.tDelIdentification [1].dwCardCode = 6823;
tIdentification.tDelIdentification [1].wPinCode
= 0;
/* not used */
/* not used */
wError = AT_HandleIdentification (&tIdentification);
if (wError != AT_E_NOERROR)
{
/* do error handling */
}
Finally, when the congress is ended, we can stop the Attendance registration and Access control by
calling:
AT_T_ACTIVATE
tActivate;
tActivate.bAttendanceOn = FALSE;
tActivate.bAccessOn = FALSE;
error = AT_Activate (&tActivate);
if (error != AT_E_NOERROR)
{
/* do error handling */
}
Now the control can be given back to the CCU by calling the following function:
error = AT_StopATApp ();
if (error != AT_E_NOERROR)
{
/* do error handling */
}

D.7. Text & Status Display (LD)
In the example below the remote functions and update notifications, that are defined in this document
as constant values for the wFnId parameter of the message (see chapter 2), are presented as
functions described in a ‘C’ syntax. The parameter structures of these functions are according the
input, output or notify structures described in the appropriate section.
For every function it is assumed that the function will create its structure, transport the parameters to
the CCU and wait for the result information coming from the CCU.
For both the remote functions and the update notifications the same names are used as their
identifier, but without the constant mark “C” and using mixed case names (with less underscores).
So, e.g. remote function LD_C_START_LD_APP shall as function be referenced as:
LD_StartLDApp (void);
D.7.1. Controlling LD application
This example shows the minimum steps to be taken for controlling the LD application
First we have to start controlling the LD application on the CCU.
typedef struct
{
WORD wDisplayId;
WORD wFlags;
WORD wNrOfSpeakerLines;
WORD wNrOfRequestLines;
DWORD dwReserved;
} LD_T_DISPLAY_REC;
typedef struct
{
WORD wDisplayId;
CHAR ssData[DCNC_MAX_DISPLAYDATA_SIZE];
WORD wNumOfChars;
} LD_T_DISPLAY_DATA;
WORD wError;
wError = LD_StartLDApp();
switch (wError)
{
case LD_E_INCONTROL_THIS_CHANNEL:
/* I have the LD app already under control */
/* Is that correct? Has the remote controller restarted? */
/* For the moment assume to be correct and continue */
break;
case LD_E_INCONTROL_OTHER_CHANNEL:
/* Another remote controller has control over the LD application */
/* report error and terminate */
........
break;
case LD_E_NOERROR:
/* function ended succesfully */
break;
default:
/* some unexpected error occurred, report the error */
........
break;
}
Bosch Security Systems | 2013 March
DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1
en | 244
We have now established communication with the LD application on the CCU. Since controlling has
now started, update notifications may arrive. Therefore, we need the following functions:
void LD_SendAnumData(LD_T_DISPLAY_DATA* ptDisplayData)
{
/* Handle data of ptDisplayData */
}
Assume that we want to store display settings of LD_C_DISPLAY_TWO. We then need the following
functions and control flow:
LD_T_DISPLAY_REC tSettings;
tSettings.wDisplayId = LD_C_DISPLAY_TWO;
/* Enable VT and MM application */
tSettings.wFlags = LD_C_VT_FLAG_DISPLAY | LD_C_MM_FLAG_DISPLAY;
tSettings.wNrOfSpeakerLines = 4;
tSettings.wNrOfRequestLines = 6;
WORD wError;
wError = LD_StoreDisplaySettings(&tSettings);
if (wError != LD_E_NOERROR)
{
switch (wError)
{
case LD_E_APP_NOT_STARTED:
/* Application not started, handle error */
break;
case LD_E_UNKNOWN_DISPLAY:
/* Incorrect display, handle error */
break;
case LD_E_WRONG_PARAMETER:
/* Incorrect parameter, handle error */
break;
case LD_E_LINES_OVERFLOW:
/* wNrOfSpeakerLines + wNrOfRequestLines >
LD_C_MAX_NUMBER_OF_DISPLAY_LINES */
break;
default:
/* Handle unknown error */
break;
}
}
When we no longer need to be able to receive update notifications we can stop the communication
with the LD application using the function:
wError = LD_StopLDApp();
if (wError != LD_E_NOERROR)
{
/* do error handling */
}
This ends remotely controlling the LD application.
D.8. Message Distribution
In the example below the remote functions, that are defined in this document as constant values for
the wFnId parameter of the message (see chapter 2), are presented as functions described in a ‘C’
syntax. The parameter structures of these functions are according the input or output structures
described in the appropriate section.
Bosch Security Systems | 2013 March
DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1
en | 245
For every function it is assumed that the function will create these structures (if needed), transport
the parameters to the CCU, waits for the result information coming from the CCU and deletes the
created structures if not needed anymore.
For the remote functions the same names are used as their identifier, but without the constant mark
“C” and using mixed case names. So, e.g. remote function MD_C_SEND_MESSAGE_TO_UNITS
shall be referenced as function as:
MD_SendMessageToUnits(MD_T_SEND_MESS* ptSendMessage);
D.8.1. Sending a Message
This example shows the steps to be taken for using the MD application.
In this example, we will send a message to a list of interpreter units. We will assume that these units
exist.
WORD wError;
typedef struct
{
DCNC_LCD_TEXT_BLOCK tText;
WORD
wRcvType;
WORD
wDuration;
WORD
wNumOfUnits;
WORD
wUnitList[DBSC_MAX_ACT_UNIT];
} MD_T_SEND_MESS;
typedef struct
{
WORD
wUnitId;
BYTE
byButtonType;
BOOLEAN bOn;
} MD_T_REQ_BUTTON_ON_OFF;
typedef struct
{
WORD wUnitId;
BYTE byLedMask;
} MD_T_AUX_LED_CTL;
MD_T_SEND_MESS tSendMessage;
tSendMessage.wUnitList[0] = 1; // List with unit id's of interpreters.
tSendMessage.wUnitList[1] = 2;
tSendMessage.wUnitList[2] = 3;
tSendMessage.wUnitList[3] = 4;
tSendMessage.wNumOfUnits = 4;
tSendMessage.tText[0] = "Line 1";
tSendMessage.tText[1] = "Line 2";
tSendMessage.tText[2] = "Line 3";
tSendMessage.tText[3] = "Line 4";
tSendMessage.tText[4] = ""; // Fifth line is a terminating line
tSendMessage.wRcvType = MD_C_RCV_INTERPRETER; /* Send to interpreters. */
tSendMessage.wDuration = 0; /* Only needed for hall displays */
/* Send the message to the listed interpreters. */
wError = MD_SendMessageToUnits(&tSendMessage);
if (wError != MD_E_NOERROR)
{
/* do error handling */
}
If we are interested in receiving update notifications, we must register with the CCU.
WORD wNrOfInstances = 0;
wError = MD_StartMonMD(&wNrOfInstances);
if (wError != MD_E_NOERROR)
Bosch Security Systems | 2013 March
DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1
{
/* do error handling */
}
else
{
switch (wNrOfInstances)
{
case 0: /* Something went wrong, handle error */
break;
case 1: /* OK */
break;
default:
/* two or more, stop rest until we have one left */
WORD wNewNrOfInstances = 0;
do
{
MD_StopMonMD(&wNewNrOfInstances);
} while (wNewNrOfInstances > 1);
break;
}
}
Now we can receive update notifications. We need a function to receive the update.
void MD_ReqButtonOnOff(MD_T_REQ_BUTTON_ON_OFF* ptReqButton)
{
switch (ptReqButton->byButtonType)
{
case MD_C_AUXILIARY_BUTTON:
if (ptReqButton->bOn)
{
/* Aux button pressed and held, switch on notebook
LED (and switch off other LEDs) */
MD_T_AUX_LED_CTL tAuxLedCtl;
tAuxLedCtl.wUnitId = ptReqButton->wUnitId;
tAuxLedCtl.byLedMask = MD_C_IN_NOTEBOOK_LED;
MD_AuxLedControl(&tAuxLedCtl);
/* handle message further */
}
else
{
/* Aux button released, switch off notebook
LED (and all other LEDs) */
MD_T_AUX_LED_CTL tAuxLedCtl;
tAuxLedCtl.wUnitId = ptReqButton->wUnitId;
tAuxLedCtl.byLedMask = 0;
MD_AuxLedControl(&tAuxLedCtl);
/* handle message further */
}
break;
case MD_C_SPEAKSLOWLY_BUTTON:
/* Handle message */
break;
case MD_C_HELP_BUTTON:
/* Handle message */
break;
Bosch Security Systems | 2013 March
en | 246
DCN Next Generation Open Interface Release 4.1
en | 247
}
}
Finally if we are no longer interested in update notifications, we can deregister with the CCU.
wError = MD_StopMonMD(&wNrOfInstances);
if (wError != MD_E_NOERROR)
{
/* do error handling */
}
D.9. Intercom
In the example below the remote functions and update notifications, that are defined in this document
as constant values for the wFnId parameter of the message (see chapter 2), are presented as
functions described in a ‘C’ syntax. The parameter structures of these functions are according the
input, output or notify structures described in the appropriate section.
For every function is assumed that the function will create his structure, transport the parameters to
the CCU and waits for the result information coming from the CCU.
For both the remote functions as the update notifications the same names are used as their identifier,
but without the constant mark “C” and using mixed case names. So, e.g. remote function
IC_C_SET_LINKS shall be referenced as function as:
IC_Set_Links (&tLinks);
D.9.1. Intercom without update notifications
This example shows the steps to be taken for controlling the IC application.
In this example, we will setup a link between some units. We will assume an operator has been
assigned.
WORD wError;
IC_T_LINKINFO_LIST tLinks;
/*
* Set up a bi-directional link between units 3 and 7 and a
* one-way link from unit 2 to unit 5.
*/
tLinks[0].wSourceId = 3;
/* from unit 3 */
tLinks[0].wDestId = 7;
/* to unit 7 */
tLinks[1].wSourceId = 7;
/* from unit 7 */
tLinks[1].wDestId = 3;

When the handset of unit 3 is picked up, a call is made to unit 7. If unit 7 picks up the handset the call
will be established (and vice versa). When unit 5 picks up its handset, the operator will be called, and
not unit 2. On the other hand, when unit 2 starts a call, the call will be made to unit 5.
