Peer to Peer low power medium access protocol for wireless communication.
WHAT IS WiseMAC?
WiseMAC is a peer-to-peer MAC protocol for wireless communication that allows ultra-low-power operation with low latency. It is based on an adaptive preamble sampling and does not require any network synchronization. It may be used to construct multi-hop networks with battery-operated routers. In star networks, it outperforms most protocols in terms of downlink latency (sensor parametrization or actuator update) with similar uplink performances.
- Asynchronous MAC protocol for wireless networks
- does not require any setup signalling
- is completely asynchronous and does not rely on any network wide synchronization
- outperforms IEEE 802.15.4 (ZigBee/Threads/…) and most low power protocols both in terms of power consumption and latency
- ultra-low-power peer-to-peer communications with low latency
- supports multihop networking with battery operated routers
- optional multichannel operation for safety and dependable operations
- available on COTS devices (incl. 802.15.4 transceivers) and CSEM SoCs.
- Safety (e.g. ship evacuation, avalanche detection)
- Building control & surveillance
- Environment (e.g. water quality monitoring)
- Agriculture (e.g. vineyards)
- Smart homes / home automation
- Asset tracking, people / patients monitoring and more…
- No configuration
- Ultra-low-power peer-to-peer operations (on both peers)
- Smoothly adapts to varying traffic from very low to medium
- Low latency sensor configuration and actuator update in star mode
