When multiple ReFLEX Outbound Messages are initiated by a messaging unit, the messages are serially queued until previous messages have been processed by the system. Pending messages must wait until all previous messages have completed their cycle. The latency experienced with this type of system becomes unacceptable in certain applications. This proposal suggests that the unit queue up all available messages as "one data stream" so that a maximum number of messages can be sent out in-between system handshakes, optimizing the serial queues. This would allow multiple messages to be sent out simultaneously to the system. The system would then parse the information and send the messages out as separate messages with separate ID's.
