Description

In order to double the throughput of the Quanta 5, Quanta 6 or Quanta 70 based systems, the aggregation technology can be used based on the standard protocols of third-party equipment or InfiMUX switches.
The simplest scheme will be the organization of two links established at the 2 level of OSI via two Quanta 5, Quanta 6 or Quanta 70 devices. LACP protocol excludes loops and allows to double the throughput in compare to the perfomance of the single link.

In this case, the link aggregation is configured on the switches using the LACP protocol. These can be both InfiMUX switches or third-party equipment. Traffic will be balanced between the two links, increasing their total throughput.

Additionally in case one of the links is breaking up, traffic will be completely transferred to the second link.

Unfortunately, in this case, the use of one frequency for two pairs of devices is not desirable.

Configuration Example

CAUTION

Configurations from the scenarios below are examples that demonstrate the potential capabilities of the Infinet Wireless devices. The configurations may vary depending on the model and firmware version. We do not recommend copying this solutions to the hardware without checking.

  • Step 1: Configure Master 1 and Slave 1 devices as the first radio link using the following parameters:

    • Downlink center frequency: 5055 MHz;
    • Uplink center frequency: 5055 MHz (Master only);
    • Channel width: 40 MHz;
    • Frame length: 5ms;
    • Access key: 9876.
  • Step 2: Configure Master 2 and Slave 2 as the second radio link using the following parameters:

    • Downlink center frequency: 5155 MHz;
    • Uplink center frequency: 5155 MHz (Master only);
    • Channel width: 40 MHz;
    • Frame length: 5ms;
    • Access key: 6789.
  • Step 3a: Configure LACP on the InfiMUX switches.

    InfiMUX 1 / InfiMUX 2
    lag 0 port eth1 eth2
    ifc lag0 up
    switch group 1 add eth0 lag0
    switch group 1 start 
  • Step 3b: Configure LACP on the third-party equipment (not included in the example).
