The WAVE interface is separated into multiple component modules that connect with each other to form a Broadband-only or Broadband + Radio System Customer. The following diagram illustrates the basic connections.
As you can see from the diagram, the majority of the modules to be added and modified are encapsulated within the Customer (green line). It is the Partner’s task to create Customers and Administrators. It is the Administrator’s task to create and manage Users, Talkgroups, and Radio Systems.
