doc.: IEEE 802.15-11-0797-00-004k Submission Background 15.4e MAC enhancements add valuable flexibility like RIT, but sensors arent 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 communications Also, adding RIT transmissions to query for possible queued data reduces battery life and adds network traffic in addition to regular traffic Matt Johnson, ItronSlide 3
doc.: IEEE 802.15-11-0797-00-004k Submission Implicit RIT Implicit RIT turns on the endpoint receiver once after each (asynchronous) transmission (not just after a RIT packet) to enable reception of data from the coordinator With 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 data –Provides predictable availability of endpoints for downlink traffic –All while supporting very long battery life in endpoints Matt Johnson, ItronSlide 4
