Wireless body area network (WBAN) is envisioned to became self-evident in future healthcare environments. One candidate to fulfill the reliably and efficiency requirements set by sending vital biomedical information is the novel IEEE 802.15.6 WBAN standard. In this paper, we study the effect of user priority scheme defined for different types of data in the IEEE 802.15.6 standard for medium access control (MAC) layer utilizing Slotted ALOHA channel access. A comparative performance analysis… CONTINUE READING
