In this paper, the authors consider the interconnection of IEEE 802.15.4 beacon enabled network clusters. They discuss two types of interconnections. One type can be achieved by using the PAN coordinator node as the bridging device and the other type is achieved by using ordinary network nodes as bridge nodes. The authors discuss design and performance issues of both kinds of interconnections. The recent IEEE 802.15.4 standard for low rate wireless personal area networks supports small, cheap, energy-efficient devices operating on battery power that require little infrastructure to operate.
