PANS R2: Co-existence of networks

Hi there,
one new feature of the PANS R2 is the possibility to run multiple networks simultaneously as stated in the newsletter:

Co-existence of networks with different PANIDs

could anyone tell me more about how this works? Is it just frame filtering based on the panid, or some sophisticated synchronization between the networks?


Hi Looki,

Co-existence consists in sharing the resources between the neighbor networks.

For example if two networks share the same space, then on can have a total of 15 tags at 10 Hz shared by those two networks and similarly a total of 30 anchors shared by those two networks.

The frame filtering is performed with regards to the PanId but there is a synchronization mechanism between networks as well to make sure there is no collision.

Hope it helps,
