This guide will assist you with the use, installation, and configuration of the VMM6300 (2.4 GHz) and
the VMM7300 (4.9 GHz), Vehicle Mounted Modem (VMM). Because of the physical and functional
similarities of these two VMMs, the same instructions will apply to both devices except where
specifically noted.
The Vehicle Mounted Modem (VMM) Defined

.
.
Thank you for purchasing the VMM6300 and/or the VMM7300 Vehicle Mounted Modem. Both
devices are designed to integrate with Motorola’s mesh enabled architecture wireless communication
system capable of supporting high data rate mobile communication at variable rates of vehicular
speeds.
The VMM6300 and the VMM7300 are wireless modems that have been designed for permanent invehicle mounting. Each device provides access to the wireless network via an Ethernet connection to
mobile data terminals, laptop computers, or any other device that has an Ethernet port. The VMM
operates on 12VDC and is rugged enough for installation in commercial and public safety vehicles.
The VMM6300 and the VMM7300 provide the same functionality as the WMC6300 or the WMC7300
(respectively) to the connected device, including geo-location.
The VMM efficiently combines the functionality of a Motorola subscriber device and client modem
into a single cost-effective wireless network component. This makes it easy for any Ethernet-ready
device to access a wireless mobile broadband network. Computers, IP video cameras, sensors, signs,
signals, etc. can all be mesh network enabled to send and receive data at burst rates of up to 6 Mbps.
All standard subscriber device functionality including Multi-Hopping™, non-line-of-sight
communications and geo-location services are fully supported.
The Vehicle Mounted Modem allows connection of multiple IP addressable devices using standard
Ethernet connectivity. This allows devices that cannot accept the PCMCIA based WMC6300 or
WMC7300 product to function transparently on a wireless mesh network without additional drivers.

Chapter 1: Introduction
VMMs Role within a MOTOMESH Wireless Network
The VMM is considered a subscriber device (SD) within the MOTOMESH wireless network.
Subscriber devices can communicate with other subscriber devices or with infrastructure devices
(MWRs and IAPs) for wireless network authentication and access. In turn, IAPs act as the principal
network management interface for associated MWRs and SDs.

There are two ways to install and setup the VMM6300 and the VMM7300 devices: MeshManager or
the MOTOMESH Device Administration web interface.
Between the two available setup methods, MeshManager is the preferred and comprehensive device
setup, configuration, and management application. Prior to using the MeshManager for device
installation and configuration, ensure that it is installed and running on a network computer.
MeshManager will be used during the VMM setup process to validate the installation of the device and
to manage it, (as well as other devices) within the wireless network. It is important to note that a fully
functional mesh network is REQUIRED when using this method.
The MOTOMESH Device Administration web interface can be used to setup and configure the device
by connecting a PC to the wired interface. Please note that the web interface does not offer all the
features that are provided within the MeshManager application. Additional web interface information
is provided later in the manual.
Detailed information about the MeshManager application is found in the MOTOMESH MeshManager
Users Guide.

3
Insert the Power Plug into Power Connector.
Figure 2-3
VMM6300 or VMM7300 Trunk Mounting
4
Verify that both MAC addresses have been recorded in either Table 2-2 or Table 2-3 of this manual, as
this information will be required to configure and test the device(s).
5
If installing more than one IP device to the VMM6300 or VMM7300, a separate hub device can be
connected to the VMM Ethernet port. The number of devices that can be provisioned to interface with
the VMM depends on the limit of the hub device selected. The VMM device itself has a recommended
limit of 50 devices.
For more information about how to configure additional devices to the
VMM refer to the DHCP Server Section of this manual.
Deployment Considerations
When deploying the VMM consider the following:
•
The antenna should be a minimum of 30 inches from any nearby metal poles to avoid
distortion of the RF pattern.
•
The antenna must have a separation distance of at least 2 meters from the body of all
persons and must not be co-located or operating in conjunction with any other antenna
or transmitter.
•
Users and installers must be provided with antenna installation and transmitter operating
conditions to satisfy RF exposure compliance.
•
Typically, Vehicle Mounted Modems are distributed within a network and are used as
subscriber devices. A rule of thumb is to deploy 2-3 hop networks to optimize range,
latency, and throughput to subscriber devices.
•
The VMM installation location must provide applicable DC power for the device.
•
It is required that the VMM chassis be grounded to minimize the possibility of ESD
(electrostatic discharge) induced damage.
•
Locate the antenna to minimize multipath:
6881011Y54-A September 2005

Chapter 2: Device Installation
- Minimize interference from nearby transmitters
- Maximize chance of a direct line of sight connection to other devices.
- Mount the supplied antenna vertically
Testing the Device Installation
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
.
.
Verify the operation of the VMM using the following procedure (within the network coverage area):
Procedure 2-2 Testing the VMM Hardware Installation
1
Apply power to the VMM. The device will be operational between 60 and 120 seconds.
2
Obtain the Transceiver MAC address and the Host address that was recorded earlier in section Mac
Address Table. The address will be similar to the format 02-05-12-0A-xx-yy for the Transceiver
(XCVR) and 00-05-12-0A-xx-yy for the Host. Please note that the actual MAC addresses will vary from
the samples addresses provided in this guide.
3
Within MeshManager’s DeviceManager screen, right-click on the appropriate VMM in the device tree
and select the Ping Device option.
4
Check for a successful response to the Ping command in the named device results dialog box. A
successful response verifies that the VMM is communicating to the infrastructure devices.
Testing Individual Device Components
You can also choose to ping each of the two individual components located within a VMM: the
Transceiver (XCVR) and the Host.
Procedure 2-3 Additional Testing of the VMM Hardware Installation
1
Apply power to the VMM – the device will be operational in 60 to 120 seconds.
2
Within the MeshManager software screen, double-click on the specific VMM in the device tree.
If MeshManager is able to communicate with the device, the top of the right pane (in MeshManager) will
be updated to show three smaller panes: one general information pane and two component panes (XCVR
and Host, respectively). See the figure shown below.

This chapter contains information which will assist you with accessing a VMMs local web interface
and using the available configuration options.
IP Addressing Considerations
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
.
.
The VMM provides network access to one or more IP devices connected to the Ethernet port of the
VMM. In order for the VMM to provide service to the IP devices, some configuration must be done
prior to connecting the IP devices.
The local default gateway address is used only on the wired interface, and is only visible to the
attached IP devices. It is not advertised to the wireless network, and the network cannot access the
VMM using this gateway address. The VMM has another IP address for the wireless interface that can
be used to access the VMM from the network. Because the gateway address is limited to the local
wired interface, the same address could be used for the gateway service in several VMM devices. The
local gateway should be a part of the overall subnet chosen for your wireless network.
Care must be taken to ensure that the selected IP address is on the same subnet and does not conflict
with any other devices or the chosen Local Gateway service address on the wireless network.
External Device Provisioning from MeshManager
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
.
.
In order for the VMM to provide service to other devices attached to its Ethernet port, some
configuration must be done from MeshManager or the device’s internal web interface.
For additional information about device provisioning options available in the device’s web interface
see the DHCP Server Section (External Device Provisioning) in this manual.
This section will concentrate on performing external device provisioning for the VMM from within
MeshManager’s Device Manager application.

Enabling the DHCP Server and Assigning Addresses
The following procedure describes how to enable the local DHCP server residing on the VMM and
assign an address range from within MeshManager’s DeviceManager screen.
Procedure 3-1 Enabling the VMM resident DHCP Server
1
Within the MeshManager software screen, double-click on a specific VMM (6300 or 7300 series) in the
device tree.
If MeshManager is able to communicate with the device, the top of the right pane (in MeshManager) will
be updated to show two smaller panes, (one for each of the two main components of the device).

Set the Local DHCP Server Enabled field to True.
This will enable the Local DHCP server (resident on the VMM) to allocate IP addresses to devices
attached to the VMM, via hub or other similar device.
When the Local DHCP server is enabled the VMM device will not check for a DHCP server on the wired
network.
6
Provide a DHCP Start IP address.
This is the first IP address in a range of IP addresses that the local DHCP server will allocate to any new

clients connected to the VMM (with the enabled DHCP server).
The IP address range should reflect the number of clients plus one,
attached to the VMM via hub or other connection. The first IP address
will be used by the DHCP server itself.
7
Provide a DHCP End IP address. This is the last IP address to end the range of addresses begun with the
IP address specified in the DHCP Start IP field.
8
Enter a CIDR value (in bits), reflecting the desired network type.
9
Enter a DHCP Lease Time appropriate for your network.
10
Enter a DHCP Default Suffix.
Depending on the way that your network is setup, this field is optional. The value entered here will be
handed out by the DHCP server and used by client devices for name resolution.
11
Enter a Default Gateway address.
12
Enter a Domain Name Server address, if one exists.

The procedure below describes how to access the VMM device web page.
Procedure 3-2 Accessing the VMM Device Administration Web Interface
1
Find the IP address assigned to the VMM SBC prior to accessing the device administration web interface.
You can use MeshManager’s Device Manager to access the VMM SBC IP address. To do this, doubleclick on the VMM in MeshManager’s Device Tree, and then view the resulting SBC IP address
information shown in the right pane.
Note that by default, the device’s addressing mode will be set to Network DHCP.
If a fixed address was provided by the Network Operator in MeshManager, then that
IP address will be used by the VMM instead of the derived address when the
Statically Provisioned option is in effect.
Alternatively, the web page can be accessed by attaching to the device’s Ethernet
port, configured for DHCP.

When the IP address is known, open your web browser and enter the IP address of the VMM SBC.
For example, if the VMM SBC address is 10.128.32.1, then the web page would be found at
http://10.128.32.1/.
If you are running a VMM as a standalone device, the configuration web
page can be reached by connecting a PC to the wired interface. The
installation procedure described here requires administrator access.
Alternatively, all of the parameters that are provisioned via the web page
may also be provisioned via MeshManager.
Administrator and User Account Information
The device has two accounts for the web interface - an Administrative account (Super User), and a
User account (Normal User). The Administrative account must be used for provisioning the device,
and the User account may be used for monitoring the status of the device.
The password for the admin account should be changed during installation. The password for the User
account can be changed by an administrator or the user.

Additional Information about the Network DHCP Setting
Network DHCP means that the VMM device can be configured to request an address from a DHCP
server and requires the inclusion of a DHCP server in the core network configuration to answer these
requests. With Network DHCP selected, the VMM will send DHCP requests for its own address to the
core network once it becomes associated and establishes communications with the infrastructure.
6881011Y54-A September 2005
3-9
Chapter 3: Device Configuration
Operation under the Network DHCP selection allows users to temporarily wander outside of the
network infrastructure without losing connectivity.
The server may be configured by the operator to hand out temporary or static leases. The VMM must
associate and acquire an address from the network before establishing communications. Once a lease
has been granted, the address will be valid out of network coverage for the remainder of the lease or, if
a static lease was granted, until the next power cycle. If the lease expires or the user cycles power
while outside of network coverage, the user will again lose the ability to communicate with the
wireless network.
Additional Information about the Statically Provisioned Setting
When selecting the Statically Provisioned Bridge Addressing option from the Configuration web
page, the VMM device will use provisioned DHCP-like information to establish an IP address for use
in the wireless network. A DHCP server is not required on the core network because the addresses are
derived from the MAC address by default. It should be noted that a DHCP server can still exist on the
network to hand out addresses to other nodes using the Network DHCP option as long as the server's
address range does not conflict with addresses assigned to other devices using the Statically
Provisioned option.
The IP addresses and options used are also configurable per-device using the MOTOMESH
MeshManager application.
The Network Operator can choose to keep the provided (derived IP address) or assign a fixed IP
address and subnet mask. It is up to the Network Operator to ensure that the assigned address is
routable on the core network (if core network access is needed) and that it does not conflict with other
addresses in use. This is analogous to and carries the same caveats as plugging an Ethernet card into a
LAN and manually assigning an address to the card.
DHCP Server Section (External Device Provisioning)
Prior to attaching external devices to the VMM device, the resident DHCP server needs to be enabled.
The current VMM factory defaults automatically enable the DHCP server feature.

Authorization
Control
To allow for various levels of security and authentication control, there are
three security authentication settings available to the MOTOMESH VMM
device: Force Authorized, Force Unauthorized, and Local.
Force Authorized
Force Authorized: In Force Authorized mode, there are effectively no
security and authentication controls, resulting in open authentication for all
network devices. There will be no security measures applied to links
between devices that are currently set to Force Authorized. Hardware
authentication via the HAS is still performed but password authentication
is not carried out at the user level and there is no integrity check carried out
for all packets transferred between any source and destination node
Force Unauthorized:
In Force Unauthorized mode, all devices seeking authorization for network
access will be denied, effectively locking down the network. The Force
Unauthorized setting will not allow any network device to establish
communication with any other node that may attempt to communicate with

Chapter 6: Certification and Safety Information
Safety Information for the MOTOMESH Products
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) with its action in ET Docket 96-8 has adopted a
safety standard for human exposure to radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic energy emitted by FCC
certified equipment. Motorola MOTOMESH products meet the uncontrolled environmental limits
found in OET-65 and ANSI C95.1, 1991. Proper operation of this radio according to the instructions
found in this manual and the hardware and software guides on the MOTOMESH CD will result in user
exposure that is substantially below the FCC recommended limits.
•
Do not touch or move the antenna(s) while the unit is transmitting or receiving.
•
Do not hold any component containing a radio such that the antenna is very close to or
touching any exposed parts of the body, especially the face or eyes, while transmitting.
•
Do not operate a portable transmitter near unshielded blasting caps or in an explosive
environment unless it is a type especially qualified for such use.
•
Do not operate the radio or attempt to transmit data unless the antenna is connected;
otherwise, the radio may be damaged.
