Problem: Devices requiring sporadic, non-real-time network access, such as meters, reattach to or camp on the network, depleting resources.
Solution: Stagger It! “Programmable Wake Time” mode
- Network access is disabled most of the time
- Network access becomes enabled based on a time-period configuration; then, the device goes back to sleep mode
- Prevents large installments of similar devices, such as meters, from all calling in at the same time
- Creates a new class of connectivity where the MNO only allows the SIM to operate during a fixed time each day, such as off-peak hours
