I am pleased with Particle’s progress on the Boron DeviceOS and can report that, at long last, functionality seems highly stable on v3.0.0-rc1. The new pricing scheme does dissuade some of my longer-term prospects, but I still have a use case for Boron especially that I can now investigate low-power applications/solar charging, now that the firmware seems to be stabilized and functional in these areas.
A critical determination in low-power LTE design is knowing truly how frequently you could fully disconnect and reconnect, to inform the tradeoff decision with keeping modem powered.
Question: Where is the official 3GPP specification/documentation/rule/information pertaining to Particle’s vague 10-min reconnection rule specified in the docs? I ask because I have many times reconnected faster than that while prototyping and power cycling Borons, and never seemed to have an issue.
How was the 10 minute figure obtained?
Is this standardized or does it vary by tower?
Thank you. And I call out @rickkas7 and thank him for his work to improve the Boron programming environment and development experience.
