The readable data can be divided into static data and dynamic data.
Static readable data
The static readable data encompasses information about, for instance, the type of NIM, the vendor name, product number, serial number, revision and link length information.
Dynamic readable data
The dynamic readable data, gives information about temperature, supply voltage, RX power level, TX power level, TX bias current and so on. These data can be provided with internal or external calibration. Internal calibration means that the data can be read and used as they are, while external calibration requires that the values that are read directly must be calibrated mathematically by means of certain calibration data, provided in the static data.
