There have been increasing demands for research into multi-channel-based wireless sensor network protocols and applications to support requirements such as increased throughput and real-time or reliable transmission. Researchers or developers of these protocols and applications have to simultaneously analyze the exchanged packets for correctness of both their contents and message exchange timelines. However, if developers were to use multiple conventional single-channel packet sniffers for this purpose, debugging during development and the verification process becomes extremely tedious and difficult because of the need to check the correctness of the protocols over multiple channels individually.
