Abstract

Transmission of the acknowledgement frame after a packet reception is optional in the IEEE 802.15.4 standard. Considering a set of sensor nodes, each of which has a packet to transmit at the beginning of an active period, we provide an analysis that yields the packet loss statistics of the nonacknowledgement mode of the standard. The analysis is based on a non-stationary Markov chain model and its accuracy is verified by ns-2 simulations. © 2007 IEEE.
