The current is interrupted (by turning on and off) in a continuous cycle that results in an oscillating gradient field.
The gradient field contains: the identification of neighbor node (neighborID), the data rate required by the neighbor (dataRate, time interval, corresponding to the interval field in interest), the start time (timestamp, corresponding to the timestamp field in interest) and the end time (expiresAt, corresponding to the expiresAt field in interest) of the term of validity, etc.
