Yes they are very dependent. A network consisting of one Border Router and one Mesh Router reporting every 1 second would mean that the Border Router has 1 message reaching it per second. On the other hand, a network of 5 of these Mesh Routers would mean there are 5 messages reaching the Border Router every second. We try to keep that number around 4-5 as any more than that would cause packets collisions.
