SNP (Sensor Node Profile) for channel management in 802.15.4 networks

Saeyoung Ahn, Sunsliin An

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We define the term sensor node profile (SNP) in IEEE 802.15.4, which considers the transmitting data type as well as a variety of nodal characteristics which are able to manage the channels of each node by using the SNP. Through the use of the SNP the nodes are able to maximize the channel resource usage, which could form the basis of algorithms that can provide the required Quality of Service (QoS).
