B5x station configuration

Does a B5x configured as the station transmit beacon signals ? or remains silent all the time !!. Need to decide whether to configure the unmanned portion of the link AP or station?

The Station(s) connect to the Access Point. In the PTP link, you will have 1 of each. In a PTMP, you will have 1 Access Point & multiple Stations. The Access Point advertises the network to the Station(s).

Using a computer as an example, your computer would be the Station and connect to the Access Point.

Thanks, I do understand, I just wanted to know whether station also transmits a beacon and is discoverable?

Simply the fact that it’s broadcasting means it’s discoverable, if you’re using the right tool. However, the beacon you’re referring to is broadcast by the AP, not the Station.
