Requirements of the Layer 2 Routing over the IEEE 802.15.4 Seong-Soon Joo*, In-Hwan Lee, Cheol-Sig Pyo ETRI
Requirements of Layer 2 Routing (I) • user requirements • from application services • scope of the TG10 • Layer 2 routing over IEEE 802.15.4 networks • IEEE 802.15.4 PHY & MAC features designed for variety of applications
Requirements of Layer 2 Routing (II) • Layer 2 routing extends the area coverage over variety of IEEE 802.15.4 PHYs and MACs • from the IEEE 802.15.4, requirements • low rate short range with battery and very low complexity • the industrial market supporting mission-critical service • low cost, low energy, reliable communications for active RFID and sensor applications • large scale process control applications such as SUN • low energy critical infrastructure monitoring • variety of requirements on Layer 2 Routing • low energy consumption : routing protocol complexity • real time : routing convergence time • deterministic delay : traffic load balancing • reliable transmission : multipath routing, rerouting • optimized routing protocol over various MAC features
MAC features of IEEE 802.15.4 • IEEE 802.15.4 • non-beacon network • beacon enabled network • superframe structure • IEEE 802.15.4e • beacon enabled MAC • Deterministic and Synchronous Multi-Channel Extension (DSME) • Low Latency (LLDN) • Time Slotted Channel Hopping (TSCH) • low energy MAC • coordinated sampled listening (CSL) • receiver initiated transmission (RIT) • IEEE 802.15.4k • Time-slot Relaying based Link Extension (TRLE) • IEEE 802.15.4m • TVWS multichannel cluster tree PAN (TMCTP)
Routing over IEEE 802.15.4 MAC features • routing over • asynchronous MAC • non beacon enabled PAN • CSL • RIT • synchronous MAC • IEEE 802.15.4 superframe • DSME • LLDN • TSCH • tree-topology supported MAC • TRLE • TMCTP • variety of requirements • low complexity • long lived • deterministic delay • real time
Design Considerations • asynchronous MAC • minimize routing convergence time • low overhead • simple route measure calculation • synchronous MAC • minimize occupancy of slots • traffic load balancing • multi-path routing, rerouting • fit to low duty cycled network • tree topology supported MAC
Conclusions • some questions • Is it possible one routing protocol fits for all? • TG10 will derive the multiple solutions as the Layer 2 Routing protocol? • Still it is required common ground for L2R over multiple MAC features? • What will be the common ground, if it is required. • these questions needs to be answered for preparing the technical guidance framework
