Link Type

Link type is a mode of selecting a wireless connection between AP and SU radios. A Link type here can be a PTP/ PTMP. Few mandatory parameters are customized in AP than in SU.

Radio Mode

Outdoor Base / Outdoor Subscriber

If the Radio Mode is Outdoor Base, it is considered as AP.

If the Radio Mode is Outdoor Subscriber, is selected then it is a SU.

Service Set Identifier (SSID)

SSID is simply the technical term for a network name. The SSID is a string with 32 characters, supports configuration of alpha-numeric and special characters. An SSID is publicly visible. Within those rules, the SSID can be anything for quick identification of the network.

Country: US 5 GHz

Band1: 5160 - 5240 MHz

Band2: 5735- 5840 MHz

Operational Mode: 11AC

Bandwidth: 20/40/80MHz

Given the above options, the admin has the flexibility to select the bandwidth. In general, 2.4GHz radio can have a bandwidth of 20 MHz i.e. for short distances. 5GHz radio can have 40 MHz/ 80MHz bandwidth. Advantages of a 5 GHz with 40 MHz/ 80MHz bandwidth are; it is tuned for faster speed; more data can be transferred and less signal interference.

Channel: A channel refers either to a physical transmission medium such as a wire, or to a logical connection over a multiplexed medium such as a wireless radio channel through which a message is sent to its intended receiver. Several Wi-Fi Channels and their numbers were pre-defined to achieve the best performance.

Note: The default channel is 160 (5800 MHz) when Outdoor base is selected in radio mode. The SU after scanning should be updated automatically with the same parameters as AP, this is possible only when SSID and Country parameters are same in both AP a SU.
