Bootup to airOS

When powering on, the Power, GPS,

LINK, and Signal 1-4 LEDs light on. Once the CPU code takes over, the GPS, LINK, and Signal 1-3 LEDs turn off.

Signal 4 LED remains on to indicate the boot sequence is underway.

Initializing airFiber Software

When the airFiber application begins to boot under airOS, the Signal 4 LED goes from solidly on to a 2.5 Hz flash. This continues until the airFiber X radio is fully booted.

Signal Level

Once fully booted, the Signal 1-4 LEDs act as a bar graph showing how close the airFiber X radio is to ideal aiming. This is auto-scaled based on the link range, the antenna gains, and the configured TX power of the remote airFiber X radio. Each Signal LED has three possible states: On, Flashing, and Off. All Signal LEDs would be solidly on in an ideal link. If the link has a 1 dB loss, the

Signal 4 LED will flash; a 2 dB loss and the Signal 4 LED will turn off. The full bar graph LED states are shown below.

The following applies to the AF-5X only:

When the AF-5X operates in a DFS country and within a valid DFS band for that country, it performs a Channel

Availability Check (CAC) before operating. The rules vary by country and frequency, but in general:

-

FCC domains

If the AF-5X operates in a DFS band

(5.2 GHz or 5.4 GHz band), the AF‑5X performs a

60-second check on the Master only.

-

ETSI domains

For most frequencies, the AF-5X performs a 60-second check on the Master and Slave; however, if it operates in the 5600‑5650 MHz range, then the AF-5X performs a 10-minute check.

While the AF-5X is performing this check, the RF Link

Output Power (EIRP)

Defines the maximum average transmit output power (in dBm) of the airFiber X radio.

To specify the output power, use the slider or manually enter the output power value. The transmit power level maximum is limited according to country regulations.

Note: The Antenna Gain and Cable Loss should be configured before the Output Power. This is because the range of the Output Power field is affected by the Antenna Gain and Cable Loss values – changing the antenna gain or cable loss adjusts the maximum and minimum values you can select using the

Output Power slider. Since the Output Power already includes the antenna gain and cable loss, it represents EIRP; therefore, the value of Output Power is actually the total power the radio is transmitting over the air. The current transmit power is displayed by the TX Power EIRP setting on the Main tab.

Note: The airFiber X radio may limit the output power to a value less than the value specified by this field, to comply with regulatory region requirements. For a list of maximum output power

values by country and region, refer to “Frequency

Ranges and Power Levels per Country/Region” on

page 50.

Antenna Gain

Enter the gain in dBi of the antenna that is used in your installation. An improper value could cause

DFS false detections when operating on DFS frequencies.

Cable Loss

Enter the cable loss in dB of the cable that is used in your installation. An improper value could cause

DFS false detections when operating on DFS frequencies.

Maximum Modulation Rate or Modulation Rate

Higher modulations support greater throughput but generally require stronger RF signals and a higher Signal-to-Noise

Ratio (SNR). By default, Automatic Rate Adaptation is enabled, and Maximum Modulation Rate is displayed. This allows the airFiber X radio to automatically adjust the modulation rate to changing RF signal conditions. Under certain conditions, you may prefer to lock the Maximum

Modulation Rate to a lower setting to improve link performance.

When Automatic Rate Adaptation is disabled, Modulation

Rate is displayed. Lock the Modulation Rate to the setting of your choice.

Select one of the available modulation rates:

8x (256QAM MIMO)

6x (64QAM MIMO)

4x (16QAM MIMO)

The Network tab allows you to configure settings for the management network. There are two ways to access the airFiber Configuration Interface:

Management Port

Enabled by default. Use a direct connection to the Management port for out-of-band management.

In-Band Management

Enabled by default. In-band management is available through the local Data port or the Data port at the other end of the link.

The Management port and in-band management share the default IP address of 192.168.1.20.

To keep the changes, click Apply. If you do not click

Apply within 180 seconds (the countdown is displayed), the airFiber X radio times out and resumes its earlier configuration.

Discard

To cancel your changes, click Discard.

Management Network Settings

In-Band Management

Enabled by default. In-band management is available through the local Data port or the Data port at the other end of the link.

Note: If In-Band Management is enabled, ensure that each airFiber X radio in a link has a unique

IP Address. If the airFiber X radios use the same IP

Address, you may lose access via the Data ports.

Management IP Address

The airFiber X radio can use a static IP address or obtain an IP address from its DHCP server.

DHCP

Keep the default, DHCP, to use DHCP reservation on your router to assign a unique IP Address. The local

DHCP server assigns a reserved IP address, gateway IP address, and DNS address to the airFiber X radio.

Note: If you select the DHCP option, ensure that you use DHCP reservation because if you do not know the IP address, then the only way to manage the airFiber X radio is to reset the airFiber X radio to its factory default settings. (Press and hold the Reset button for more than five seconds.)

Its default Management IP Address is reset to

192.168.1.20.

-

DHCP Fallback IP

Specify the IP address the airFiber X radio should use if a DHCP server is not found.

-

DHCP Fallback Netmask

Specify the netmask the airFiber X radio should use if a DHCP server is not found.

Static

Assign static IP settings to the airFiber X radio.

Note: IP settings should be consistent with the address space of the airFiber X radio’s network segment.

airView Port

The port number associated with the airView spectrum analyzer tool. The default value is 18888.

For detailed information on the airView tool, refer to

“airView” on page 33.

-

IP Address

Specify the IP address of the airFiber X radio. This IP will be used for device management purposes.

-

Netmask

When the netmask is expanded into its binary form, it provides a mapping to define which portions of the IP address range are used for the network devices and which portions are used for host devices. The netmask defines the address space of the airFiber X radio’s network segment. The 255.255.255.0

(or “/24”) netmask is commonly used on many Class C

IP networks.

-

Gateway IP

Typically, this is the IP address of the host router, which provides the point of connection to the

Internet. This can be a DSL modem, cable modem, or

WISP gateway router. The airFiber X radio directs data packets to the gateway if the destination host is not within the local network.

-

Primary DNS IP

Specify the IP address of the primary

DNS (Domain Name System) server.

-

Secondary DNS IP

Specify the IP address of the secondary DNS server. This entry is optional and used only if the primary DNS server is not responding.

Management VLAN

If enabled, automatically creates a management Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN).

VLAN ID

Enter a unique VLAN ID from 2 to 4094.

Auto IP Aliasing

If enabled, automatically generates an

IP address for the corresponding WLAN/LAN interface.

The generated IP address is a unique Class B IP address from the 169.254.X.Y range (netmask 255.255.0.0), which is intended for use within the same network segment only. The Auto IP always starts with 169.254.X.Y, with X and Y as the last two octets from the MAC address of the airFiber X radio. For example, if the MAC address is

00:15:6D:A3:04:FB, then the generated unique Auto IP will be 169.254.4.251. (The hexadecimal value, FB, converts to the decimal value, 251.)

The Auto IP Aliasing setting can be useful because you can still access and manage devices even if you lose, misconfigure, or forget their IP addresses. Because an

Auto IP address is based on the last two octets of the MAC address, you can determine the IP address of a device if you know its MAC address.

GPS Clock Sync

The airFiber uses GPS to synchronize the timing of its transmissions. By default, this option is disabled.

Automatic Power Backoff

This feature allows the radio to automatically adjust the maximum TX power per modulation so that the radio never transmits at a higher power than each modulation rate can decode. The default values in the Max 8x/6x/4x Conducted Power fields are values determined to work at all temperatures and all frequencies supported by the radio.

It may, however, be possible to increase the maximum

TX power for one or more modulations based on your radio’s operating environment. For example, if a radio is running at 6x and trying to switch into 8x operation, you can increase the Max 8x Conducted Power value 1 dB at at time to see if the radio can maintain 8x operation

(Automatic Power Backoff must be enabled to allow the

Max Conducted Power fields to be edited). The same can be done with 6x and 4x up to the maximum conducted power of the radio.

Max 8x/6x/4x Conducted Power

The maximum conducted power for the 8x/6x/4x modulation rates. Each field is editable only if Automatic Power Backoff is enabled.

DATA Port Ethernet Settings

Chapter 7: Advanced Tab

Use Timeout Duration

This option is designed for use by operators who are using in-band management. Two timers control the Data port’s Ethernet link.

RF Link

Goes down for the first time

Ethernet Link

The Ethernet link goes down and remains down for the number of seconds specified by the Link Off Duration timer.

The Ethernet link will then come back up so that the airFiber X radio can be managed even when the RF link is down.

The Ethernet link remains up as long as time remains on the

Link Off Spacing timer.

When the Link Off

Spacing timer elapses, then the Ethernet link goes down again for the number of seconds specified by the Link

Off Duration timer. (This happens only if the RF link is still down.)

Notes

Even if the RF link goes back up before the

Link Off Duration timer elapses, the Ethernet link remains down.

The Ethernet link’s downtime is long enough to signal to the customer’s routing equipment that the path is lost.

DATA Speed

This is the speed of the Data port.

The default is Auto. The airFiber X radio automatically negotiates transmission parameters, such as speed and duplex, with its counterpart. In this process, the networked devices first share their capabilities and then choose the fastest transmission mode they both support.

To manually specify the maximum transmission link speed and duplex mode, select one of the following options: 100 Mbps‑Full, 100 Mbps‑Half, 10 Mbps‑Full, or

10 Mbps‑Half.

To disable the Ethernet data port, select Disabled.

Note: If Disabled is selected, ensure that the radio is accessible using the Management Ethernet port or over the RF link (with in-band management enabled), or all communication with the radio will be lost.

Full-duplex mode allows communication in both directions simultaneously. Half-duplex mode allows communication in one direction at a time, alternating between transmission and reception.

Flow Control

If enabled, the airFiber X radio generates and responds to Ethernet layer PAUSE frames. The airFiber X radio regulates inbound traffic from the customer’s network to avoid buffer overflows within the airFiber X radio. Flow control has the effect of controlling the inter-packet spacing of packets headed into the airFiber Data interface.

Multicast Filter

If enabled, the filter blocks multicast traffic from overloading the CPU when in-band management is enabled. This allows the airFiber X radio to be managed in-band when the customer’s network is carrying large volumes of multicast traffic, such as IPTV.

The filter does not block multicast traffic going over the radio; it simply blocks it from reaching the airFiber’s management interface CPU.

Track Radio Link

If this option is enabled, the airFiber X radio disconnects the Data port’s Ethernet link when the

RF link is lost (The Management port is never disabled by this option). The Track Radio Link option is useful because it quickly indicates a “link lost” condition to the customer’s routing equipment (such as a direct connection to

OSPF-enabled routers).

Disabled

The Track Radio Link option is disabled by default. The Data port’s Ethernet link will always remain up regardless of the RF link state.

Goes down for the second time

The Ethernet link’s uptime is long enough so the operator has enough time to access the airFiber X radio, make configuration changes, and save those changes.

Sufficient Ethernet link uptime is vital when a

RF link is constantly up and down.

If the Use Timeout Duration option is enabled, the Track

Radio Link option and the following timers are enabled:

-

Link Off Duration

The Link Off Duration timer controls the length of time the Data port’s Ethernet link will be down if the RF link goes down. Enter the number of seconds that the Ethernet link should be offline. For example, if this is set to 10 seconds, then when the RF link goes down, the Ethernet link will go down and remain down for 10 seconds (regardless of the RF link state), and then it will go back up.

-

Link Off Spacing

The Link Off Spacing timer controls the length of time the airFiber X radio will wait before allowing the Data port’s Ethernet link to go down for a second time if the RF link goes down again. Enter the minimum interval (in seconds) between offline events of the Ethernet link, regardless of the RF link status.

The value for Link Off Spacing should be larger than the value for Link Off Duration, and it should be enough time for the operator to access the airFiber X radio, make any configuration changes, and apply those changes.

Note: If the Link Off Spacing timer is set to

0 seconds, then the Ethernet link will only use the

Link Off Duration timer. If the Link Off Duration timer is set to 10 seconds and the RF link goes down, then the Ethernet link will go down for

10 seconds and then go back up regardless of the

RF link state. If the RF link is still down, then the

Ethernet link will not go down again until the RF link goes back up and then down again.

Chapter 7: Advanced Tab

Here are a couple of examples involving the use of the

Use Timeout Duration option.

• Example #1

Link Off Duration

5 seconds

Link Off Spacing

60 seconds

The Data port’s Ethernet link will be initially disconnected when the RF link first goes down. That event will start a 60-second timer. The Ethernet link will remain offline for 5 seconds (regardless of the RF link status) and then come back online. The Ethernet link will remain online (regardless of the RF link state) until the 60-second timer expires.

• Example #2

Link Off Duration

20 seconds

Link Off Spacing

120 seconds

The Data port’s Ethernet link will be initially disconnected when the RF link first goes down. That event will start a 120-second timer. The RF link goes back up after 10 seconds; however, that does not affect the Ethernet link. The Ethernet link will remain offline for 20 seconds and then come back online.

The RF link goes down again after 60 seconds; however, that does not affect the Ethernet link.

The Ethernet link will then remain online until the

120-second timer expires.

Enabled

This option is designed for use by operators who are not using in-band management. The Track

Radio Link option is enabled without timers, so the Data port’s Ethernet link follows the RF link state exactly. If the RF link goes down, then the Ethernet link goes down and remains down until the RF link goes back up.

Minimum TX Capacity

This is the minimum allowable TX capacity before the link is dropped. If the capacity drops below this threshold, the Ethernet link will be dropped.

If set to 0, then capacity will not be used; only the RF link state will be used.

Minimum RX Capacity

This is the minimum allowable RX capacity before the link is dropped. If the capacity drops below this threshold, the Ethernet link will be dropped.

If set to 0, then capacity will not be used; only the RF link state will be used.

Capacity Window

This is the number of continuous seconds that the radio must remain under the minimum

TX or RX capacity before the link is dropped. If set to

0, then as soon as capacity drops below a set limit, the

Ethernet link will be dropped.

MGMT Port Ethernet Settings

MGMT Speed

This is the speed of the Management port. By default, the option is Auto. The airFiber X radio automatically negotiates transmission parameters, such as speed and duplex, with its counterpart. In this process, the networked devices first share their capabilities and then choose the fastest transmission mode they both support.

To manually specify the maximum transmission link speed and duplex mode, select one of the following options: 100 Mbps‑Full, 100 Mbps‑Half, 10 Mbps‑Full, or 10 Mbps‑Half. If you are running extra long Ethernet cables, a link speed of 10 Mbps could help to achieve better stability.

Full-duplex mode allows communication in both directions simultaneously. Half-duplex mode allows communication in one direction at a time, alternating between transmission and reception.

Appendix B: Listen Before Talk airFiber

X User Guide

Appendix B: Listen Before Talk

40

Note: This appendix applies to the airFiber AF-3X radio only.

Introduction

Listen Before Talk (LBT) is a requirement for the 3.6 GHz band in North America and Canada.

Because exclusive licenses for the 3650-3700 MHz band are not granted within the United States, operators must take steps to minimize potential interference in this band.

LBT refers to a contention-based protocol (CBP) that requires a device to check if the transmission channel is in use (listen) before it can initiate a transmission (talk). FCC standards that relate to LBT include the following:

• FCC Part 90, Subpart Z requires 3.6 GHz systems to implement a contention-based protocol to provide

LBT capability. This same requirement has also been adopted by Industry Canada (IC).

• FCC Part 90, Subpart Z defines two categories of contention-based protocols, restricted and unrestricted:

-

Restricted contention-based protocol

This is a protocol that can detect interference from products that use a similar contention technology. Systems using a restricted contention-based protocol operate in the lower 25 MHz of the frequency band (3650-

3675 MHz).

-

Unrestricted contention-based protocol

This is a protocol that can detect interference from products that use a dissimilar contention technology. Systems using an unrestricted contention-based protocol use the full 50 MHz (3650-3700 MHz) of the frequency band.

Unrestricted Protocol Description

The AF-3X Master/Slave system uses dedicated logic for the LBT protocol, which is embedded into a TDD frame structure. Energy detection is done at the beginning of the TX defined by the frame structure of the air interface, at intervals of 2.0, 2.5, 4.0, or 5.0 ms for compatibility between various other Part 90Z radio devices.

Threshold Detection To Determine

Occupancy

The AF-3X averages the energy detected over a fixed listen time and compares it to a preconfigured threshold value.

This threshold is configured for values that are within the linear portion of the radio’s Receive Signal Strength

Indicator (RSSI) dynamic range.

The energy detection threshold is proportional to the transmitter’s maximum transmit power. For example, if the transmitter’s EIRP is 23 dBm, then the detection threshold at the receiver’s input (assuming antenna gain of 0 dBi) is

-73 dBm/MHz.

The detection threshold is adjusted as follows: where:

DT = -73 dBm/MHz + 10log

10

(B) + 23 – P

T

+ A

DT = Detection Threshold in dBm

B = Monitored bandwidth in MHz

P

T

= Maximum transmit power in dBm EIRP

A = Receive antenna gain in dBi

The receive antenna gain A is set equal to the external antenna gain. The following are set by the operator during the configuration of the AF-3X radio:

• maximum desired EIRP power P

T

• external antenna gain A

• channel bandwidth B

The AF-3X ensures that the sum of the actual conducted power and the external antenna gain used to calculate P

T does not exceed the regulatory EIRP limit.

The Master/Slave device makes an average measurement during its Tx and samples the channel every frame

(typically 2.0 ms) to accumulate a co-channel signal measurement. A typical accumulation period is 5 µs.

The bandwidth used for all channel occupancy measurements is the same bandwidth used for system operation and is configurable for values that range from

3.5 MHz to 40 MHz.

The detection threshold is configured to scale automatically based on the in-use modulation level that the system negotiates. The threshold level is automatically set by the radio to meet regulatory requirements. All threshold levels are normalized to a 0 dBi reference level.

The detection system uses the same hardware as the actual radio lower-level software code and is therefore operational over the same power range.

The AF-3X point-to-point system employs a proprietary media access layer (MAC) that utilizes a TDD scheduled transmission which is synchronized. Both the Master and Slave employ a threshold detection mechanism to monitor for other systems running within a selected channel.

Action Taken When Occupancy is

Determined

Upon detection of occupancy, the Master will cease transmission. It will continue to monitor the channel to see if at any point that it becomes available.

Hidden-node problems are avoided by the AF-3X system’s proprietary media access control (MAC) layer that utilizes a TDD scheduled transmission (a synchronized framed transmission). The Slave device cannot transmit until it is allocated bandwidth from the Master device. If the

Master device detects co-channel signals, the uplink for the scheduled slot allocation is not granted to the Slave, preventing the Slave from transmitting. Since permission to transmit is granted by the Master, there is no hidden node problem like that experienced by Wi-Fi systems which employ a contention-based protocol.

airFiber ® X User Guide

Opportunities for Other Transmitters to Operate

No differences are performed between start-up mode and operational mode. The Master/Slave device goes into an energy scanning mode where it is allowed to do one full cycle of energy detection before it is allowed to transmit. The scan is a mode where the average energy is accumulated to compare against the programmed detection threshold. If the energy detected is less than the detection threshold, the Master/Slave device is allowed to make a transmission.

In normal operational mode the system does not allow any transmission once the threshold has been detected.

Once the energy is no longer present will the system begin to transmit again.

The Master and Slave uses the energy detected prior to each transmit frame to control the muting of the transmit function.

At any load level (no load, typical, or overload), the system transmits data based on the configuration for the uplink/downlink ratio The same amount of bandwidth is reserved for channel detection, so performance remains unaffected.

If there are two AF-3X systems on a co-channel, they would share the spectrum as follows:

• Since the system is a synchronized frame-based system, both systems would operate effectively with each other because each system can be configured to transmit and receive at the same point in time. The system uses a

GPS synchronization to time-align the start-of-frame for all systems deployed.

• If the users configure the number of uplink and downlink slots and the duty cycle (uplink/downlink ratio) in an identical manner and each system uses the same set of uncommitted uplink slots for the detection sampling interval, then the two systems will co-exist with no knowledge of the others presence.

• Each system listens prior to transmit and if it detects activity yields to the other system.

• The system will shut down when the accumulated energy is above the detection threshold and will continue to transmit if it is below the detection threshold. When the co-channel system is clear of the channel then the target system will go back into regular operation. Regular operation will consist of a constant averaging of the energy detected in the uplink slots.
