Up: Static Configuration
Previous: Configuration Requirements
- The radio topology and frequency assignment algorithm 
currently takes on the order of several minutes to complete. It must be
run each time the EN to EN topology changes. This requires that ENs
remain fixed. Virtual Network Configuration  can be used once
the system is in operation. Should the orderwire configuration processing
be distributed rather than redundantly computed at each node in order to
speedup this operation ?
- How will QoS be defined and used to guide the topology ?
- Depends on a master coniguration node: how can it be made
more reliable, e.g. hot backup or redo the entire topology ?
- This algorithm assumes all packet radios are within broadcast
range of each other. What problems may occur if the network grows large
enough that some packet radio nodes cannot reach others ?
