In the "Link Settings" section you can configure the parameters for the pseudo radio interface and for the Join function.
In the "prf" subsection, you can configure thepseudo radio link as a MINT network node. The "prf" subsection is available for configurations only after at least one pseudo radio interface has been created in "Network Settings" section. Pseudo radio interface is used to provide MINT-over-Ethernet.
Transformation to "Unicast" requires memory data copying that increases CPU load. Besides, the use of "Unicast" streams increases the volume of transmitted traffic proportional to the number of subscribers and reduces the sector available throughput.
"Unicast 3" mode is set by default.
Transformation of "Multicast" to "Unicast" via CLI is described in the section "mint command".
Activate routing using the ODR protocol. The following modes are available:
The main advantage of ODR protocol is a network throughput efficient use. Part of the link throughput is usually used by the routing protocol to transmit service information, this part can be released by ODR using. The ODR protocol transmits the hosts IP prefixes using the MINT protocol at the data link layer.
The ODR protocol can only be used in networks with star topology, where all nodes are connected to the central node only. An example of such a network is a point-to-multipoint topology, where each subscriber is connected only to a base station.
Automatic updates in the MINT domain may be configured in the following modes:
In the "Join" subsection, you can link two or more pseudo-radio interfaces of one unit into one MINT domain. Each of these interfaces may act as an independent MINT network node. The "Join" subsection is available for configurations only after at least one pseudo-radio interface has been created in "Network Settings" section. In order to join the interfaces, simply enable the check boxes of the corresponding interfaces.
