The i.LON 700 can be replaced with a SmartServer IoT plus a U60 FT or U60 TP-1250 interface. 

The examples below show how to use the SmartServer IoT as a direct replacement for two different i.LON 700 use-cases.

To configure the SmartServer to use RNI or IP-852 routing, see Adding a LON Interface. For SmartServer IoT release prior to 2.7 Update 1, see Features Configuration.

Example 1: Direct replacement for i.LON 700 (self-repeater IP-852 routing) - using the SmartServer as a self-repeater

The SmartServer IoT can be used as a direct replacement of the the i.LON 700 or i.LON 600 "Self-installed router as repeater" mode.  This feature allows you to connect devices on multiple SmartServers, i.LON 700s and i.LON 600s LonWork channels without using a Network Integration tool to provision the SmartServer or LON 700.

Self-repeating is used to tie devices for two or more LON networks together in which the NetworkM Integration  tool doesn't know how to provision IP-852 routers. For example, this feature is used to tie LON networks for two or more floors together, or two or more buildings together, so that the head-end software can access the datapoints from multiple floors or buildings. 

For direct replacement, perform the following steps:

Example 2: Direct replacement for i.LON 700 (IP-852 routing)

The SmartServer IoT with a single U60 can be used as a direct replacement for an i.LON 700 that is used for IP-852 routing. In this case, you need to provision the IP-852 router and U60 for IP-852 routing.



For direct replacement, perform the following steps:
