Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) is an emerging low-power wireless technology developed for short-range control and monitoring applications that is expected to be incorporated into billions of devices in the next few years. This paper describes the main features of BLE, explores its potential applications, and investigates the impact of various critical(More)
Frequency channels are a scarce resource in the ISM bands used by IEEE 802.11 WLANs. Current radio resource management is often limited to a small number of non-overlapping channels, which leaves only three possible channels in the 2.4GHz band used in IEEE 802.11b/g networks. In this paper we study and quantify the effect of adjacent channel interference,(More)
This paper analyzes the effect of multi-rate transmissions in a CSMA wireless LAN environment. Observations in a real testbed showed that bandwidth resources (in Bytes/s) are shared fairly among all stations even though transmissions carried out at lower rates capture the medium for longer periods, which drastically reduces the overall throughput. The(More)
—We present an analytical model for the maximum throughput of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), considering the presence of uncorrelated bit errors and the impact of a key BLE parameter that defines the time between the start of two consecutive connection events. The derived analysis models the generic application of master-to-slave unidirectional data(More)
Energy-efficient operation is a challenge for wireless sensor networks (WSNs). A common method employed for this purpose is duty-cycled operation, which extends battery lifetime yet incurs several types of energy wastes and challenges. A promising alternative to duty-cycled operation is the use of wake-up radio (WuR), where the main microcontroller unit(More)
