Answer

DS (Direct Sequencing) radio terminals support 6 power performance mode settings. They are as follows:

Mode 0
Continuously Aware Mode (CAM), also called "Performance Index 0".
  • In this mode, the radio continuously listens for messages and network activity. 
  • It provides the best network performance and the lowest response time; however, the power consumption is the most.
Mode 1
Power Save Polling Mode 1(PSP1), also called “Performance Index 1". 
  • In this mode, the radio will sleep if it has nothing to send and wake-up on every beacon.
Mode 2
Power Save Polling Mode 2(PSP2), also called “Performance Index 2". 
  • In this mode, the radio will sleep if it has nothing to send and wake-up on every other beacon.

Power Save Polling Mode 3(PSP3), also called “Performance Index 3". 
  • In this mode, the radio will sleep if it has nothing to send and wake-up on every third beacon.
Mode 4
