Wireless Personal Area Networks: Performance, Interconnection, and Security with IEEE 802.15.4
Wireless Personal Area Networks:
- Provides a comprehensive, in-depth look at the issues surrounding WPAN network operation and performance.
- Investigates multi-cluster networks and compares how they can be implemented.
- Analyzes the performance of a single cluster under different traffic and power management regimes including uplink vs. downlink traffic, acknowledged vs. unacknowledged traffic, saturation vs. non-saturation, and the like.
- Discusses security issues in WPANs such as different security threats, their impact on performance, standard security mechanisms, and security policies.
- Compares the IEEE 802.15.4 standard with the related Bluetooth IEEE 802.15.1 standard in terms of suitability for implementing wireless sensor networks.
This reference is a valuable tool for developers and researchers getting acquainted with various aspects of IEEE 802.15.4 technology. Graduate students studying courses such as Performance Evaluation, Wireless Sensor Networks and Queuing Theory will also find this book very insightful.
