Low-power and Lossy Networks (LLNs), like wireless networks based upon the IEEE 802.15.4 standard, have strong energy constraints, and are moreover subject to frequent transmission errors, not only due to congestion but also to collisions and to radio channel conditions. This paper introduces an analytical model to compute the total energy consumption in an(More)
New wireless sensor network applications (e.g., military surveillance) require higher reliability than a simple best effort service could provide. Classical reliable transport protocols like Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) are not well suited for wireless sensor networks due to both the characteristics of the network nodes (low computing power, strong(More)
—This paper presents an experimental study of TCPHC, a novel algorithm for compressing the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) header to reduce its overhead in IPv6-enabled Low-power and Lossy Networks (6LoWPANs). Results show that TCPHC outperforms TCP both in low-loss and high-loss networks. In fact, TCPHC can reduce the TCP header to 6 bytes in more than(More)
—The 6LoWPAN layer was recently introduced as a means to enable the transmission of IPv6 datagrams over Low-power and Lossy Networks (LLNs). That layer provides schemes for fragmenting the network-layer datagrams and reassembling link-layer fragments. However, the loss of one fragment of the original datagram will lead to the loss of the latter, and(More)
