i need to cover a site with Cambium cPilot and i want to connect the cnPilots thought backbones with cnWave.
The black points are the nodes and some of them are connected with cnpilots (LAN-to-LAN).
The center of the site (v5000) have not LoS with the POP Fiber so i need to do a PTP link with 2 two v1000 and connect the v5000 with another v1000 (the black dot on the right of the image).
My question is:
i need to set the v1000 that connect the V5000 in DN and set the V5000 in DN too or the V5000 will operate correctly even if the v1000 is a v5000 “slave” setted in CN mode and the V5000 is a DN “master”?
The node having fiber/backhaul access should be a POP and onboard controller should be run on POP and not any other node.
Which means it should be on V1000_DN @ POP Fiber. However, E2E controller on V1000 supports one link (PTP topology) only. My suggestion is to use V3000 instead at POP Fiber and enable E2E controller there.
It’s not raccomanded or doesn’t work if i put the E2E controller on a non fiber POP?
Can I set the POP fiber V1000 in PTP with e2e controller on it, connect the remote v1000 in cnmode, connect it to the v1000 in LAN-to-LAN and connect it in DN mode to the v5000 in dn mode too and enable the E2E controller on the v5000?
I have remote access to all the devices so is not very important to have only one e2e controller.
This strategy will work but lead to multiple tunneling (L2 GRE encapsulation / decapsulation overhead).
Consider traffic from a CPE connected to right most V1000_CN.
Tunnel1 from V1000_CN to V5000_DN
Tunnel 2 from V5000_DN to V1000_DN
Tunnel 3 from V1000_CN to V1000_DN at POP Fiber.
Throughput will come down. Especially at V5000 as two tunnels are involved.
The relay port enabled is necessary?
I have a router where the fiber arrive and where i will connect the POP fiber V1000 so i don’t need the OpenR routing.
I’m I wrong?
I can use the relay port (the AUX port for exemple) instead use a switch to connect two V1000 and a cnpilot?
Exemple: LAN-to-LAN the cnpilot with the second V1000 (cn mode) and the other V1000 (cnmode) connected through AUX port in relay mode with the other V1000?
