Hourly Data Pings

What are the hourly data pings? I see this in data usage for both my and my son's phone. It's at the same time on the hour if that makes sense.

Inquiring minds want to know! Can we call this a kick?

What type of phone? Could it be chacking the system for new emails? Could it be checking for App updates? Could it be updatign your location for Family Map (or some similar application)? There are lots of possibilities which could cause this, but we don't have enough information to even narrow it down much...
