LR-WPAN Formation Topologies Using IEEE 802.15.4
IEEE 802.15.4 protocols are gaining interests in both industrial and research fields as candidate technologies for (WPAN) Wireless Personal Area Networks, (WSN) Wireless Sensor Network and control Wireless Networks applications. This paper analyzes multiple topologies such as Cluster-Tree, Mesh and Star in various scenarios to compare different performance metrics (Throughput, traffic sent, traffic received, Load, End-to-end Delay and etc). In this analysis it is found that Cluster-Tree topology is best as compared to Mesh and Star topology because it take 20% and 45% load greater as compared to Mesh and Star Topology respectively. Similarly its throughput, Traffic Sent, Traffic Received and Delay is better than the other two topologies.
