Is there any downside and/or benefit to having a device connection on the local gateway(Spoke) as well as the same device connection on a central gateway (Hub)?
Our current system utilizes a Hub & Spoke architecture with all of the device connections residing on the local gateway (Spoke). However; all remote connections and remote operations get funneled through the Hub project.
In the event that the local (Spoke) is turned off or loses connection we also lose the ability to operate via the Hub.
If I am not mistaken would it not be better to have these device connections on both gateways for operational redundancy? Would the only downside be extra traffic?
