Wi-SUN Border Router#

A Wi-SUN Border Router connects a Wi-SUN network to other IP-based networks, such as Ethernet®. It also manages the Wi-SUN mesh network connected. The Border Router provides services for devices within the Wi-SUN network, including routing services for off-network operations. Silicon Labs provides a Border Router binary demonstration running on a standalone EFR32 and a production-grade Wi-SUN Linux Border Router.

This section provides additional information about using and configuring a Wi-SUN Border Router.

  • Wi-SUN Network Configuration: Introduces the different Wi-SUN Border Router solutions maintained by Silicon Labs. Provides installation instructions for a Wi-SUN Linux Border Router. Describes the Linux Border Router software architecture. Includes the steps to establish a connection between a Wi-SUN network and an external IP network.

  • Wi-SUN IP Communication: This section provides guidelines to ping a Wi-SUN device from the Raspberry Pi running wsbrd. These guidelines assume that wsbrd has been configured and is running on the Raspberry Pi.

  • Linux Border Router (GitHub): Contains source code and instructions for wsbrd, one part of the Linux border router solution.

  • Border Router Graphical User Interface: Presents the Wi-SUN Border Router Dashboard, that can be used to configure the Wi-SUN Linux Border Router and visualize the Wi-SUN Network.
