AC800M and AC 870P (Melody) in one 800xA System?
Has anyone experience with combining these two controllers into one 800xA System? We have a (quiet) large 800xA System (5.1 RevD) with 800M Controllers and now our customer likes to implement his "old" Melody System - which runs now with Maestro UX - into this System. It's clear that we would need the system extension for Melody and also a Connectivity Server with Melody connect... But could there be any problems (e.g. with the Network), any difficulties?
The combination of both connectivities will work, just a few points:
You may need the Melody Connect Operations package too and licences for that (per Client).
For Melody you have the O-Net with all controllers, you need a DHCP Server for that, you may have to connect you DC's to it.
You have to integrate the composer server (engineering server) into your system. Above it is mentiond as Melody Config Server.
Think about the time sync scheme.
