Tive trackers measure and transmit data based on your desired intervals.
- Transmission Interval is how often the cellular radio is activated to transmit data to, and receive configuration updates from, the Tive Platform. The ping rate should be set according to the requirements of your shipment: for a longer shipment, you may want to set the tracker to ping less frequently, while for a shorter shipment, you may want more frequent pings.
- Measurement Interval records the environmental sensors, GPS/Wi-Fi positioning, reads Bluetooth Beacons, and then awaits the next Transmission Interval to send them. By default, this is set to the same rate as the Transmission Interval but can be more frequent, especially when GPS and Bluetooth Beacons are not used.
