The hop rate or dwell time of Digi radio modems

The average dwell time (time spent transmitting on one frequency) in real-world applications of XStream and XCite frequency hopping modules is 64 milliseconds.

The dwell time varies according to data packet size and radio configuration, but will always be somewhere between 50ms and 400ms.

This means the hop rate is somewhere between 20 hops and 2.5 hops per second.

Please find more information on page 4 of the application note "Digi specifications for comparison to competition"
