Operational Mode When looking at the LEDs on the module the following descriptions go from left to right. LNK: The link LED displays the status of the Ethernet link to the Canopy module. The LED will be constantly lit if there is an Ethernet link present.
  • Page 11: Background Information On Networking

    BACKGROUND INFORMATION ON NETWORKING Computers are assigned IP addresses by network operators, which have two methods available, static or dynamic IP addressing. The user of this document will need to understand how IP addressing is done at their particular location. All Canopy radio products (Subscriber Modules, Access Point Modules, and Backhaul Modules) have the default IP address of

    INSTALLATION The following steps are required to install the Canopy subscriber module. • Unpack the Canopy products • Configure the subscriber module for the Canopy network • Install the module • Align the module UNPACK THE CANOPY PRODUCTS Upon receipt, carefully inspect all shipping boxes for signs of damage. If there is damage, immediately notify the transportation company.

    discern that a password is set. • The operator can enter in information about the Site Name, Location, and Contact. This is optional. If the subscriber module is in the 5.7 GHz band and the operator will be utilizing the Canopy passive reflector to obtain a link at distances of 10 miles or less, the subscriber module should be mounted to the reflector in the following manner.
  • Page 14 FIGURE 3 • Leave the unit mounting means loose enough to allow for movement when performing the alignment procedure. They must be tightened after the alignment procedure is completed. As with any such installed devices, the Canopy subscriber module and the Ethernet cable must be grounded in accordance with the latest revision of the National Electrical Code (NEC) and/or all country and local electrical codes to provide some protection against damage caused by near-miss lightning strikes and other electrical discharges.
  • Page 15: Align The Subscriber Module

    Wiring Diagram of Canopy subscriber module to Computer with Surge Suppressor ALIGN THE SUBSCRIBER MODULE There are two methods that can be utilized for aligning a subscriber module to an access point module. The first is to monitor the RSSI and Jitter values on the subscriber. The second is to utilize the built-in alignment tool on the subscriber module.
  • Page 16 • Point subscriber module in direction of the access point. Remember that when utilizing the internal patch antenna the energy is radiated out in a 60° horizontal by 60° vertical pattern. IF UTILIZING A 5.7 GHz SUBSCRIBER MODULE: the passive reflector will change the radiated pattern to 6°...
  • Page 17: Cabling

    CABLING The following information describes the wiring standards for installing a Canopy system. All diagrams use the EIA/TIA 568B color standard. Currently shipping modules auto-sense the Ethernet cable type – either RJ-45 straight-thru cable or RJ-45 crossover cable can be used to connect a network interface card (NIC), hub, router, or switch to a module.

  • Page 20: The Interface Screens

    THE INTERFACE SCREENS The Canopy subscriber module contains a series of web pages that are used to interface to the unit. The following is a quick reference to interface screens. Note: These screens are subject to change by subsequent software versions. To access the web based interface you first must be on a computer that is in some way connected to the subscriber module.
  • Page 21 FPGA Version: displays the version of the FPGA (field programmable gate array) that is currently loaded into the module. Please make note of this information when obtaining technical support. Uptime: displays the length of time the module has been operating since a rest of the module occurred.
  • Page 22: Configuration

    CONFIGURATION The Configuration webpage contains information and configurable parameters pertaining to the operation of the product. The first line of information on the Configuration screen is a repeat of the Device Type from the Status web page. The following are the parameters and their descriptions. Link Negotiation Speeds: choose the type of link speed desired for the Ethernet connection.
  • Page 23 is a means for the Canopy System operator to segregate an individual network or neighboring Canopy networks. Also, color code can be used to force a subscriber module to only register to a specific access point module even though the subscriber module may be able to see multiple access point modules.
  • Page 24 Undo Save Changes: by clicking on this button, any changes that have been made and not committed through a reboot of the module will be undone.
  • Page 25 Set to Factory Defaults: depressing this button will change all of the configurable parameters (all of which are contained on the Configuration page) back to their factory settings. Reboot: depressing this button will reboot the module. Canopy Default Plug When inserted, the default plug brings the module up with a default configuration. This allows the operator to regain control of a module, which may be using an IP address and/or password that has been forgotten.
  • Page 26: Event Log

    EVENT LOG This page contains information that is recorded from the subscriber module for troubleshooting purposes. Please make note of the information that is gathered here when calling for technical support. Clear Event Log: this button will clear the event log.
  • Page 27: Ap Eval Data

    AP EVAL DATA The AP Eval Data web page contains information on each of the access point modules that the subscriber module has visibility to. For each access point module that can be seen certain bits of information are shown on this web page. An example of the information shown on this web page for each access point module: Index: 0 Frequency: 0 MHz ESN: 0a-00-3e-00-01-d5 Jitter: 5 RSSI:...
  • Page 28: Ethernet Stats

    ETHERNET STATS The Ethernet Stats web page reports TCP throughput and error information for the Ethernet connection of the subscriber module. The following definitions are available: inoctets count: displays the total number of octets received on the interface, including framing characters.

    collision occurs during the first 512 bits of the frame transmission. If a collision occurs after the 512 bit times, then it is considered a late collision. A late collision should be taken as a serious network problem, since it causes the frame being transmitted to be discarded. The most common cause of late collisions is a mismatch between duplex configurations at each end of a link segment.

    The Link Test is a test for measuring the throughput and efficiency of the RF link between two Canopy modules. To perform a link test enter a number into the field labeled “ Duration ”. The duration is the number of seconds the RF link will be tested.

  • Page 33: Appendix

    APPENDIX There are two basic concepts that are needed for a basic understanding of networking, IP addresses and subnet masks. IP addresses are 32-bit binary numbers that have two corresponding parts or sub-addresses, the first part identifying the network and the second part identifying the hosts on the network.
