In this paper, we evaluate the energy efficiency of IEEE 802.15.6 compliant Wireless Body Area Networks (WBAN) in scheduled accesss mode. We analyze the impact of superframe size, number of uploads per superframe, payload size, acknowledgement policy and the periodicity of allocations on the energy efficiency. Numerical evaluations show that energy efficiency can be improved by (i) increasing the number of uploads in the active superframe, and (ii) adopting block acknowledgement policy. It is… CONTINUE READING
