Markov Chain-based performance analysis of multihop IEEE 802.15.4 wireless networks

  title={Markov Chain-based performance analysis of multihop IEEE 802.15.4 wireless networks},

  journal={Perform. Eval.},
In this paper, we propose a Markov chain-based analytical framework for modeling the behavior of the medium access control (MAC) protocol in IEEE 802.15.4 wireless networks. Two scenarios are of interest. First, we consider networks where the (sensor) nodes communicate directly to the network coordinator (the final sink). Then, we consider cluster-tree (CT) scenarios where the sources communicate to the coordinator through a series of intermediate relay, which forward the received packets and… CONTINUE READING
