I am a user on the XBee PRO S2B. I have some questions about behaviors of “source routing” provided by this product.
For example, it is supposed that a network consists of 1 coordinator and 5 routers (R1, R2, R3, R4, and R5). To send a source routed packet to R4, the application send a “Create Source Route” API frame (0x21).
In this case, the “Create Source Route” API frame is configured as follows.
Create Source Route (API 1)
Start delimiter: 7E
Frame type: 0x21 (Create Source Route)
Frame ID: 0x00
64-bit dest. address: 0x0013A200 404A1234
16-bit dest. address: 0xEEEE
Route options: 0x00
Number of addresses: 0x03
Address 1: 0xCCCC
Address 2: 0xBBBB
Address 3: 0xAAAA
Device 16-bit address 64-bit address
R4 0xDDDD 0x0013A200 404A1234
When R5 is located between R2 and R3, is R5 aligned on the route (Coordinator ->R1->R2->R3->R4) if a source routed packet is issued?
Is a source routed packet always transferred according according to the provisioning sequence of all intermediate devices?
