3 <November 2011>Background15.4e MAC enhancements add valuable flexibility like RIT, but sensors aren’t always smart enough to know when to ask if there is data queued on the coordinator for them.And we want some predictability for downlink communicationsAlso, adding RIT transmissions to query for possible queued data reduces battery life and adds network traffic in addition to regular trafficMatt Johnson, Itron
4 <November 2011>Implicit RITImplicit RIT turns on the endpoint receiver once after each (asynchronous) transmission (not just after a RIT packet) to enable reception of data from the coordinatorWith professional installation, all endpoints are programmed with system-wide defaults at installation.This approach:Removes extra network traffic just to query the coordinator for waiting dataProvides predictable availability of endpoints for downlink trafficAll while supporting very long battery life in endpointsMatt Johnson, Itron
