airFiber - What kinds of topologies exist for AF24?

Overview


In addition to the simple PtP link design, AF24 can be used in ring redundancy patterns as well as daisy-chained paths.

Ring Redundancy


Multiple AF24 radios can be placed in a ring-topology for redundancy. If one link goes down, other links have alternate routes available. For each link, configure one airFiber radio as Master, and configure the other as Slave.

Daisy-Chain Paths


Multiple AF24 radios can also be used to extend the distance of a link like a series of PtP relays (PtPtP). Radios in the same node must use the same Wireless Mode (Master or Slave) to ensure low-latency across the entire link.
