OPNET Based Design and Performance Evaluation of ZigBee Networks

Use of this thesis is restricted to the UNT Community. Off-campus users must log in to read.

Description

ZigBee is a substandard of IEEE 802.15 family that is specially designed to take care of factors such as power, data rate and area that primarily affect network performance. This has controlling and monitoring capability, which finds potential applications in different sectors. ZigBee allows the concept of hybrid networks and mobility. A comprehensive analysis of ZigBee networks was carried out by constructing and simulating the networks to evaluate the performance in terms of throughput, delay, network load, and packets dropped. This research is aimed at evaluating the effect of network topology on the system performance. A careful review of simulation ... continued below

Description

ZigBee is a substandard of IEEE 802.15 family that is specially designed to take care of factors such as power, data rate and area that primarily affect network performance. This has controlling and monitoring capability, which finds potential applications in different sectors. ZigBee allows the concept of hybrid networks and mobility. A comprehensive analysis of ZigBee networks was carried out by constructing and simulating the networks to evaluate the performance in terms of throughput, delay, network load, and packets dropped. This research is aimed at evaluating the effect of network topology on the system performance. A careful review of simulation platforms brought the conclusion of using OPNET Modeler which has the required frame work. Different network topologies of simple and hybrid were built and simulated. Throughout the simulations, the best-case scenarios were drawn to the conclusion by the graphical analysis of parameters of evaluation. Mobile networks were constructed and simulated to investigate the effect of mobility on communication.
