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.
