In LoRaWAN there is the concept of “address space”, where nodes on a network are assigned a particular address depending on the type of network server being used. This is described in this page of TTN.
The experimental space uses addresses starting with 0x00/0x01/0x02/0x03, which is what loraserver uses. Since these addresses are non-unique and they are validated using a MIC, collisions are avoided. What I am wondering is why there is a concept of address space in the first place. Does it even matter? Would it be a problem in the long term to use an “experimental” address space in production environment?
