Dynamic RF Channel Change In Beacon-Enabled IEEE 802.15.4 Networks

Jean-Francois Wauthy, Laurent Schumacher

Research output: Contribution to journalLiterature review


IEEE~802.15.4 has been shown to be vulnerable to interferences from other devices operating in the same frequency range especially from IEEE~802.11 (WiFi) devices. In this document, we detail a mechanism allowing a beacon-enabled PAN to detect that its operating RF channel is getting busier and is degrading and to change it to another less crowded one with a very short ``off-line'' period of the associated nodes.
