Can the AS be positioned in the middle of the mstp bus?

Issue

Typically the master controller is at the end of the bus, but is it possible to place it in the middle?

Environment

AS

b3

Cause

Depending on the buildings wiring there could be a need to place the AS in the middle of the bus.

Resolution

The AS can be placed in the middle of the bus, but the terminating resistors must then be placed at both ends of the bus. This method wasn't officially tested in this manner by SQA, but it works similar to how a BCX 4040 does which can be placed in the middle of the bus in this fashion.
