Network Location position moving over time

Signal reception can slightly change over time. If a base station receives a message with a poor RSSI (e.g. -140 dBm) it might not receive next messages from the same device. In such case, the Network Location position can vary significantly.

Let us take the following example:

A first message is sent by a static device.

The message is received by 2 base stations: BSA at -140 dBm, BSB at -137 dBm.

A second message is sent by the same device, still static.

This 2nd message is received only by BSB at -141 dBm.

The 2 base stations are 20 km apart.

Then the position of the 1st and the 2nd message will be several kilometer apart.
