    94 GW640x and GW630x can have their J9 slot can be replaced with PCI-e Expansion adapter, contact !sales@gateworks.com for details.  Attaching a GW16081 at that site allows 9 radios can be populated using these boards, 7 on mezzanine 2 on board.
    95 
    96 A 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.

     97The Newport GW640x and GW630x are ideal SBCs for implementing high radio count access points due to their support of a large amount of PCI memory address space. The bottom right Mini-PCIe slot can be replaced with a PCI-e Expansion connector allowing the GW16081 Mini-PCIe Expansion Mezzanine to be stacked with the board.
     98
     99With the GW6400 up to 10 radios can be supported (3 on GW6400 + 7 on GW16081). With the GW6300 up to 9 radios can be supported (2 on GW6300 + 7 on GW16081). For even higher radio count applications a special version of the GW16081 is available with an additional stacking connector allowing up to 3 GW16081's to be stacked with the CPU board. This would allow up to 21 radios with the GW6300 and 22 radios with a GW6400.

     101Note the GW16081 also supports USB signaling to the Mini-PCIe sites so a combination of WiFi and Cellular radios could be used with these configurations. 
     102
     103As an example, Gateworks compined a GW6300 plus GW16081 with 9x GW17032 (WLE900VX, ATH10k) radios. Each radio then was configured as an access points.  This configuration can be achieved very simply using the following steps.
