Hi Daud,
I've copied the mailing list, as I believe the question belongs there.

Yes, we have an option to stack UmTRX'es, but it is only to share
clock source and/or GPS source, i.e. you still have to connect each
UmTRX to the Ethernet. As long as connecting to an Ethernet switch
works fine, so we don't see this as an issue.

Later we may consider implementing true stacking when stacked units
share Ethernet port, like with USRPs. This might be a useful endeavor,
but we don't want to dive into this until we have everything else
settled.
