Invokes the configuration mode of a t5 wireless controller

Supported in the following platforms:

  • Wireless Controllers — RFS4000
  • Service Platforms — NX5500, NX7500, NX9500, NX9600, VX9000




t5 <T5-DEVICE-MAC> Specify the T5 device‘s MAC address. The system enters the identified device‘s configuration mode.

A T5 controller uses the IPX operating system to manage its connected radio devices, as opposed to the WiNG operating system used by RFS wireless controllers and NX service platforms. However, a T5 controller, once enabled as a supported external device, can provide data to WiNG to assist in a T5‘s management within a WiNG supported subnet populated by both types of devices. The CPEs (Customer Premises Equipments) are the T5 controller managed radio devices using the IPX operating system. These CPEs use a DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) as their high speed Internet access mechanism using the CPE‘s physical wallplate connection and phone jack.

After logging on to the T5 device, use the ‘cpe‘ keyword and configure the following mandatory settings:
  • vlan – Set a VLAN from 1 - 4,094 used as a virtual interface for connections between the T5 controller and its managed CPE devices.
  • start ip – Set a starting IP address used in a range of addresses available to T5 controller connecting CPE devices.
  • end ip – Set an end IP address used in a range of addresses available to T5 controller connecting CPE devices.
