JADConfig IP Schemes


Overview

JADConfig offers 4 subnets that can be applied to a Just Add Power system, or the ability to set a custom subnet.

  • Class A: 10.0.0.0 mask 255.0.0.0
  • Class B: 172.16.0.0 mask 255.255.0.0
  • Class C 100: 192.168.100.0 mask 255.255.255.0
  • Class C 200: 192.168.200.0 mask 255.255.255.0

The specific subnet chosen does not affect the system as long as 2 rules are followed:

  1. Each Transmitter and Receiver need a unique IP address
  2. The selected subnet is not duplicated elsewhere on the network

IP Tables

The tables below cover the 4 standard IP schemes and an example of a custom IP scheme. Each table presents the first 10 Transmitters and Receivers and can be extrapolated for the rest.

Custom Subnet

When choosing a custom subnet, it is helpful to understand how JADConfig will assign IPs based on the initial inputs. JADConfig will ask for 2 inputs:

  1. IP of the Identity (first IP) of the network to be used
  2. Overall subnet mask for the Just Add Power network

Once those two values have been assigned, JADConfig will generate IPs for the switch using this template:

  1. Transmitters in the first half of the subnet, Receivers in the second half of the subnet
    • For example, setting a /16 overall subnet will separate the devices into 2x /17 networks
  2. Each Transmitter must be accessible in a separate VLAN, so a /30 subnet is created for each Transmitter. The Transmitter is assigned the 3rd IP in that subnet, a subnet mask to match the overall network mask, and the default gateway is the 2nd IP in that subnet. The default gateway is then assigned as the IP address of the managed switch for the VLAN assigned to that Transmitter. This results in every 4th IP being a Transmitter, starting from the 3rd IP in the overall subnet.
  3. All Receivers are accessible through a single VLAN, so they use the entire second half of the overall subnet. The 2nd IP in the second-half subnet is assigned as the default gateway on all Receivers, then the Receivers are ordered sequentially starting at the 3rd IP in the second-half subnet. The subnet mask matches the overall network mask.
Transmitters
Device IP Subnet Mask Default Gateway
Transmitter 1 3rd IP in first half Subnet mask 2nd IP in first half
Transmitter 2 7th IP in first half Subnet mask 6th IP in first half
Transmitter 3 11th IP in first half Subnet mask 10th IP in first half
Receivers
Device IP Subnet Mask Default Gateway
Receiver 1 3rd IP in second half Subnet mask 2nd IP in second half
Receiver 2 4th IP in second half Subnet mask 2nd IP in second half
Receiver 3 4th IP in second half Subnet mask 2nd IP in second half

Custom Example

Using a customized input of:

  1. Identity IP: 192.168.10.0
  2. Overall subnet mask: 255.255.254.0 (/23)

Allows for a maximum of 64 sources and 252 displays and produces an IP table of:
