An efficient medium access control (MAC) protocol is critical for the performance of a wireless sensor network (WSN), especially in terms of energy consumption. In this work we discuss the efficiency of S-MAC, a well-known MAC protocol for WSNs, and propose an improvement on the protocol. Via an extensive simulation study considering the cases of both(More)
Powerline communications (PLC) are currently being considered as an alternative for high-speed data communications and Internet access. With multiple outlets in almost every room, power lines are already the most pervasive network in the home or small office. This work presents a new medium access control (MAC) protocol for the "last mile" access PLC(More)
