Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) based on the IEEE 802.15.4 standard are constantly expanding. Applications like production control, building control are more and more based on WSN because of their energy efficiency, self organizing capacity and protocol flexibility. However, the construction of Cluster-Tree networks based on the beacon mode Pancake graphs is still undefined by the IEEE 802.15.4 standard. In order to enable the construction of such topology, i.e., Beacon Cluster-Tree based on Pancake graphs, the authors present, in this paper, a new topology construction approach.
