In this paper, we present our open source implementation of the IEEE 805.15.4-2006 protocol stack on the TI CC2430 micro-controller in the framework of e-health services, and offer an in-depth investigation with respect to the difficulties towards such an implementation, the limitations of the micro-controller and the hardware platform, as well as our hand-tuning efforts to maximize performance on this off-the-shelf platform. With our implementation, we report its autonomy, maximum frame rate as well as the challenges when enabling security extensions.
