The Packet Forwarder uses a localization API that resides in the hardware abstraction layer (HAL) to timestamp received UL packets. The packet forwarder calls functions provided by this particular software architecture, which are selective for certain end devices depending on their importance or value within your solution.
The timestamp and other meta data from an UL packet are sent up to the network server using a special TOA Packet (as opposed to attaching them directly). This guarantees that your packets won’t be delayed because of estimation signal processing delays. The formatting for these types or interfaces between forwarders/servers is decided by their respective vendors; integration with Actility and Loriot’s products has been progressing recently too.
