Channel quality of ieee 802.15.4 based sensor networks



Channel quality of wireless networks is a topic
considered by most of the network practitioners and researchers.
There are several factors that affect the quality of a wireless channel,
and therefore, the reliability of data delivery. Therefore, an
understanding of the characteristics of a wireless channel is an
essential part in the design, analysis and deployment of any wireless
system. This paper establishes an empirical study of some of the
major characteristics of IEEE 802.15.4 based sensor networks. The
metrics used were received signal strength, loss rate and packet delay.
The proposed study can be useful for selecting the most appropriate
channel when deploying a wireless sensor network.
