Physical Layer


The physical layer includes all hardware components and the wireless connections. This includes the high speed radios, orderwire packet radios, ATM switch, antennas, and additional processor for configuration and setup (orderwire). This layer provides a raw pipe for the data link layer described in the next section. Configuration at this level is described in Section 8.
