Abstract

The paper discusses data broadcast algorithms for the 802.15.4 based ZigBee network standard and their applicability to creating sensor networks for medical data applications, focusing especially on transmitting data to multiple receivers (multicast concept). The multicast concept is not currently supported by ZigBee. Therefore, the focus is on introducing a multicast communication model and suggested a new algorithm based on ZigBee which is specifically optimized to support multiple sinks. Further on the paper describes experiences with developing M-Bee, a multicast routing algorithm platform, using the open Microchip’s ZigBee software stack
