IMS uses FRT (Functional Real Time)
Instead of Clogging Networks with Streaming Data that just isn’t needed, the Rates and Frequency at which the Data is Transferred, are Based on the Event.
During Normal Float, Data is batched up three times a day, and transferred Once a Day.
When a Battery is in Discharge, an Event Notification is sent out to the IMS Server, and an Event Notification Email is sent out to the User/Subscriber. The IMS System will then Increase its Rate of Data Transfer.
When the AC Power is restored, and the Battery is being charged, the Event is sensed by the CIC, sent to the IMS Server, and an Event Notification is emailed out as well. The Recovery of the Battery will be monitored with a more Frequent Rate of Data Transfer.
Once the Battery has reached the start of a Float State, for the first 30 minutes, a more Frequent Rate of Transfer is used, so recovery can be confirmed. After this period, the system shifts back to the Normal Float Transfer Rate noted above.
