2.0 The Hardware
Within two boxes, I found the pair of bridges, POE injectors, power supply adapters, ethernet cablesand console cables.
2.1 The ODU (Out Door Unit)
The TrangoLink-10 ODUs are painted white, metal cased and have easy mounting holes for brackets on the back. The POE injector is simple, fairly small and wall mountable. One unit comesas the Master Unit and the other called the Remote Unit.Was simple to install the ethernet into the ODU screw socket and get the unit powered up the initialconfiguration.The ODU has a few LEDs near the ethernet cable connector that shows your RF link and ethernetstatus.
3.0 Setting up the Units for Deployment and Testing
Our next steps are to review the set-up process and get the units into the field for testing. First, Ineed to get access to the units.
