Class C Multicast downlink


#1

Is it possible to generate a downlink frame to a Class C multicast enabled end node ?
Is there a way to do this from the Senet Portal ?
the Class C device’s have already joined the network using OTAA . Now i would like to send a multicast downlink frame to a group of Class C endnodes.
Is this possible ?.

Hello Ken,

Senet does support Class C multicast on our network. We’d like to get a better understanding of your use case, devices involved etc. We’ll have someone contact you to discuss in more detail.

Hi Mike
Thanks for the response … I think I already figured it out. i now have it working ok.
At this point, usecase was just an experiment to see if i was able to issue a multicast downlink frame to a group of nodes that were Class C nodes, and had joined the Senet network, thru OTAA.
Solution appeared to be set up ABP node on the Senet Portal and use that to issue downlink frames to the other nodes that had been configured with multicast enabled and configured for the devaddr and sessions keys of the previously set up ABP device on the Senet Portal
Not sure if that is the only way, but it seems to work so far
