Mapped objects consist of mapped devices and mapped points. A mapped device shows an object exists in the NIE database that reflects an actual device in the N1 Network. The only devices mapped from the N1 Network are NCMs.

A number of N1 point objects are defined as Metasys mapped points under the NCM object. A mapped point reflects that an object exists in the NIE database that reflects the current state of the same point in an actual device on the N1 Network. Table 1 describes the available point object mapping.
