With the current complexity of communication protocols, implementing its layers totally in the kernel of the operating system is too cumbersome, and it does not allow to fully use the capabilities which are only available in user space processes. However, building protocols as user space processes must not impair the responsiveness of the communication. Therefore, in this paper we present a layer of a communication protocol, which, due to its complexity, was implemented in a user space process. This layer must communicate with the lower layers of the protocol, which for responsiveness issues are implemented in the kernel. This protocol was developed to support large-scale power-line communication (PLC) with timing requirements.
