The problem addressed in this paper is how to design an efficient network protocol specially suited for SFN based master-slave PLC system [Bumiller, G, 2002]. Since the power-line is a complex medium not suited for data transmission, hence classical routing is not efficient For this purpose, and thanks to the physical layer emulator [Bumiller, G, 2004] implemented by iAd, we used the simulation approach to derive important design parameters such as repeater level variation, packet error rate…
