A Simulation Study of Behaviour of Mobile Zigbee Node
Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) has been researched in recent years. WSNs have inherent and unique characteristics compared with traditional networks. It consists of light-weight; low power and small size Sensor Nodes (SNs). They have ability to monitor, calculate and communicate wirelessly. Sensor nodes should send their collected data to a determined node called Sink. The sink processes data and performs appropriate actions. In this paper, an accurate simulation model, the behavior of a mobile Zigbee node passing through the radius of multiple PANs is examined using OPNET simulator. The performance metrics like: PAN Affiliation, Data Dropped, Traffic Received are reported.
