MPLS ON,OFF Multi protocol Label Switching
wiredRouting ON, OFF  
llType LL, LL/Sat Link Layer
macType Mac/802_11, Mac/Csma/Ca, Mac/Sat, Mac/Sat/UnslottedAloha, Mac/Tdma Medium Access Control
ifqType Queue/DropTail, Queue/DropTail/PriQueue Interface Queue type
phyType Phy/wirelessPhy, Phy/Sat Physical Layer Type

    2. depending on the type of network, you can set the power. for WSN, you can get the power history of a IRIS or MICA and set the corresponding values, for a wifi network, set power based on the battery profile of the device.....
