HAPI over WAN and Unicast

Postby tiborknowles » Fri Mar 15, 2019 16:35

Hello,

Doing a design and would like to hook up two HAPI's or Anubis over AWS or Google Cloud Platform.
Has there been any testing done regarding HAPI over WAN?

Essentially, the ports targeting the WAN would need to be Unicast. How would the PTP packtes handle that?

Please let me know at your earliest convenience.

Thanks, Tibor

1. Would it be necessary to have a PTP Grandmaster clock locked to GPS in both locations?
2. Would ANEMAN pick up both HAPI's (assuming they both need to be on same subnet?)
3. What if the HAPI were not on the same subnet, how would you get them talking? NAT?
4. Can you set the HAPI ports to transmit and receive Unicast?
5. What testing has your team done, how was it set up?

HAPI Unicast --> ISP --> Internet --> Cloud (No Multicast allowed) --> Internet --> ISP --> HAPI

6. What happens if location A loses GPS lock. Will the signal be un-decodable at location B? And visa versa.
