This book outlines the most important characteristics of 15.4 and ZigBee and how they can be used to engineer WSN systems and applications, with a particular focus on Quality-of-Service (QoS) aspects. It starts by providing a snapshot of the most relevant features of these two protocols, identifying some gaps in the stan- dard specifications. Then it describes several state-of-the-art open-source imple- mentations, models, and tools that have been designed by the authors and have been widely used by the international community. The book also outlines the fundamental performance limits of 15.4/ZigBee networks, based on well-sustained analytical, simulation, and experimental models, including how to dimension such networks to optimize delay/energy trade-offs.
