This application note discusses three flexible methods for configuring Digi Wireless radio modems for operation as repeaters:
- Store and forward (Loopback)
- Streaming (back-to-back)
- Application specific (implemented outside the module)
Note: Since the creation of this application note several more sophisticated repeater modes have been created that allow multiple loopback repeaters to be used in the same area. Please see the examples in XStream module addresses and masks.
MaxStream has also developed a functionality on internal to the XStream and Xtend radios that will allow them to be configured for repeater operation. Refer to the article Using Repeaters in a Wireless Network.
