I’m preparing to deploy a Tektelic 16x2 GW among an existing network server configuration of several 8x1 Mikrotik LR9s, region is US915.
If I understand correctly (and I’m not sure that I do), this means the network server must still be configured for 8x1 channels, because not all of the GWs support 16x2. For example, on an OTAA Join, a device may be given a channel mask including 16x2 channels and thus frequently use channels the 8x1 GWs don’t hear.
My hunch is that I would not change the network service configuration and still have effectively an 8x1 network, though I believe the 16x2 gateway uplinks will still be available via MQTT for monitoring purposes.
Is this correct?
