Hybrid FAQ

Posted by Lee Dubé | About the Author on Jun 7, 2019 1:34:27 PM

 

A common question frequently asked about the new AES 7177 Hybrid 2.0 Fire Subscriber is, 'Where in the network can the Hybrid unit be placed?'.  

 
AES Mesh Radio Network


The Importance of the Routing Table

As long as another IP Link or Hybrid make it onto the Hybrid's routing table, the unit will be satisfied.  However, if there are no IP Links or Hybrids listed in the routing table then the unit will produce a Redundant Mesh (RM) Fault meaning it does not have peer in its routing table at a similar or lower Link Layer than that of the unit itself (Link Layer 0).  The unit does this to always ensure it can serve as a RF repeating peer to other dependent Subscribers.

Best Practices Guideline

Posted by Lee Dubé | About the Author on Jan 14, 2019 1:40:00 PM

 

Please note, this blog post is offered for reference only to be used as a general guideline for
networks utilizing the 7705i MultiNet Receiver (similar guidelines are being developed for next generation 7705ii MultiNet Receiver networks). Not all networks are the same, each private network has a different set of variables and unique configuration. Field Technicians and Installers should always seek appropriate advice from a member of the AES Support team if they have a question or need assistance.

 

Based on Our Experience


experience

 

The capacity of Subscribers supported by a set of IP Links or Hybrid Subscribers when establishing a network will be up to 1,200 Subscribers. Actual capacity may be higher or lower depending on geography, environmental factors, deployment strategies (frequency of Check-Ins, Time-to-Live settings, etc.), and quality of installations.
