ANT is open access multicast wireless network operating in the 2.4 GHz
ANT network approach is based on "Nodes" that are able to act as slaves or masters.
Each ANT channel consists of one or more transmitting nodes and one or more receiving nodes, depending on the network topology. Any node can transmit or receive, so the channels are bi-directional.
