IEEE 802.15.5 WPAN Mesh Standard-Low Rate Part: Meshing the Wireless Sensor Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper introduces a new IEEE standard, IEEE 802.15.5,which provides mesh capability for Wireless Personal Area Network (WPAN) devices. The standard provides an architectural framework enabling WPAN devices to promote interoperable, stable, and scalable wireless mesh topologies. It is composed of two parts: low-rate WPAN mesh and high-rate WPAN mesh. In this paper, the authors present only low-rate WPAN mesh because it is designed to support wireless sensor networks. IEEE 802.15.5 low-rate part is a light-weight scalable mesh routing protocol that caters well to the requirements of resource-constrained wireless sensor networks.
