Connecting your Network Interface
One side of the Mimer NetworkInterface has a standard RJ45 connector for 10/100 base TCP/IP.
Connect this side to your
IP network as described to the right.
Example of a Motorola GM360 and a network interface. The
blue cord is a standard Cat5 cable.
Each Network Interface in the system needs to
be given its unique ID-number and unique IP-address. This is done via the
program "Network Interface Setup". Read more
Different connection types
Local Office Network
You can connect your Mimer Network Interfaces to your ordinary office network
(LAN). All your computers on the office network will then be able to connect to the radios, if they have Mimer SoftRadio installed.
The Network Interface needs to have its own fixed
In some cases it is better to run the Mimer system on a separate network, for example
for computer network security reasons.
You can of course do this, just set up a separate CAT5 network. Either put in extra network cards on your computers so they can access two separate networks or use separate computers. With separate computers just for Mimer SoftRadio we recommend that you
also use touch screens.
We have customers that work in environments were everything is run via fibre instead of copper.
If so, you need to transform your network via fibre to copper converters.
WAN or the Internet
The Network Interface can also be connected to
a wide area network or to an
Internet connection, for example through ADSL.
The connection needs to have a fixed IP-address.
If you use a
Mimer RadioServer at the radio site, the server will
connect to the WAN or the Internet.
And the Network Interfaces will then connect to the RadioServer.
