|An index that identifies through reference to a specific
SMF operations mode. There are basically three styles
of SMF operation with reduced relay sets currently
Independent operation 'independent(1)' -
SMF performs its own relay
set selection using information from an associated
MANET NHDP process.
CDS-aware unicast routing operation 'routing(2)'-
a coexistent unicast routing
protocol provides dynamic relay
set state based upon its own control plane
CDS or neighborhood discovery information.
Cross-layer operation 'crossLayer(3)' -
SMF operates using neighborhood
status and triggers from a
cross-layer information base for dynamic relay
set selection and maintenance.
