What modes are available with Modem 6?

24 June 2021

Modem 6 supports two modes:

Acknowledged Mode

The Acknowledged mode uses full two-way communications to ensure that all data sent through the acoustic link is received by the user. Any data lost due to environmental challenges will be re-requested automatically. This mode is excellent for ensuring all data is received, however it can compromise the speed of the link in challenging conditions.

Fire and forget mode

The Fire and Forget mode continuously streams any new data to minimise latency, for applications where losing the occasional piece of data is not critical. Any data that is missing will not be re-requested. This is ideal for relaying near real time sensor data.
