Data channels as ADV channel in #BluetoothMesh ? #bluetoothmesh

Hi Johan, 
In older version of Bluetooth, only 3 channels are used for advertising. But in Bluetooth 5 we can use data channels for advertising.

Can we use data channels as ADV channel by configuring Zephyr #BluetoothMesh stack ?

If this possible then, that could increase efficiency of Mesh performance.

Thank You !!

Agreed, but unfortunately it's not possible with Bluetooth Mesh 1.0.
That said, it's possible we'll see a future Mesh specification version
that allows taking advantage of Bluetooth 5.0 features.
