    5461The currently supported Data Path Module is the Click Modular Router, v1.6;  later, this is planned to be replaced with v1.8.

    56 The functionality of the CLICK Modular Router is shown in Fig 4.  It is based on a dynamically configurable L2 learning switch.
    57 
    58 Both UL and DL data paths are automatically created and installed when MSs associate.  Dataflows are:
    59 
    60  * DL from GENI Access Network:  classifier, switch, tunnels
    61 
    62  * UL from Clients: ARP lookup, switch, GENI Access Network

     67Both Up Link (UL) and Down Link (DL) data flows are automatically created and installed when MSs associate.  Data flows are:
     68
     69 * Down Link (DL) from GENI Access Network:  classifier, switch, tunnels
     70
     71 * Up Link (UL) from Clients: ARP lookup, switch, GENI Access Network
    6372
    6473 * DHCP allocations: learned by the parser, which populates entries in a ARP manager
     
    6675 * ARP Requests from GENI Access Network: handled by ARP manager
    6776
    68 Data paths are setup by the CLICK configuration file;  see (reference below).  This configuration file is initialized and then updated by the Control Module.  With the current v1.6 implementation, the CLICK modular router must be restarted after the configuration file is updated.
     77Data paths are setup by the CLICK configuration file;  see (reference below).  This configuration file is initialized by the Control Module, and then updated whenever data flows are added or deleted.  With the current v1.6 implementation, the CLICK modular router must be restarted after the configuration file is updated.

    7685A group of MSs, each identified by its MAC address, is associated with a particular subnet/VLAN tag.  Typically, each subnet/VLAN tag is associated with a particular "slice".
