The Zigbee TH Reg is a Zigbee mesh where one module is a coordinator which establishes the mesh and the other units are either routers or end devices. A Zigbee mesh is capable of sending data to all nodes (Broadcast) as well as sending data to one node (Unicast).

The difference between Zigbee mesh and Digi mesh is that Digi Mesh is proprietary and a true peer to peer mesh where as Zigbee is not.

Thanks for your answer ^_^
Is it possible if I recover the ZigBee and change the function of ZigBee TH Reg to DigiMesh 2.4 or something else to applied DigiMesh protocol to XBEE (X24C)?

if not possible, so I must change the xbee, isn't right ?
IF you have the proper hardware then yes, you can change the firmware on the S2C from Zigbee TH to Digi mesh.
