    9090No software support is needed for the GW16081
     91
     92=== 9 radio test
     93
     94GW640x and GW630x J9 slot can be replaced with PCI-e Expansion adapter, contact !sales@gateworks.com for details.  Attaching a GW16081 at that site allows 9 and 8 radios can be populated on those boards respectively.
     95
     96A limiting factor when using Ventana was the address space, Newport has a much larger address space therefore allowing numerous modern devices to be working simultaniously.  For a test 9x GW17032 (WLE900VX, ATH9k) radios were brought up as access points.  This configuration can be achieved very simply using the following steps.
     97
     98- Attach radios to both boards, attach expansion board to SBC.
     99- Attach barrel jack power to expansion board.  The radios are going to draw more power than can be can be provided through the mezzinene expansion header.   
     100- Attach POE, or barrel jack power to SBC.
     101- Using your perfered method install your perfered BSP, during this testing Ubuntu Bionic with 4.20 kernel was used.
     102- Boot Bionic download necessary software and scripts
