Terminal station: It refers to the microwave station that transmits services only in one direction.
Relay station: It refers to the microwave station that transmits services in two directions and is required added to solve the problem existing in the microwave line of sight communication. The relay station is classified into two types, active relay station and passive relay station.
Add/Drop relay station: It refers to the microwave station that transmits services in two directions and adds/drops transmitted services.
Pivotal station: It refers to the microwave station that transmits services in three or more than three directions and transfers the services in transmission channels in different directions. It is also called the HUB station.

 Radio Frequency relay station
 An active, bi-directional radio repeater system without frequency shift. The RF relay station directly amplifies the signal over radio frequency.

 Regenerator relay station
 A high-frequency repeater of high performance. The regenerator relay station is used to extend the transmission distance of microwave communication systems, or to deflect the transmission direction of the signal to avoid obstructions and ensure the signal quality is not degraded. After complete regeneration and amplification, the received signal is forwarded.
