ME1328: Network Performance, Reliability and Metrics for Embedded IP Mesh Networks
Millions of devices have been deployed on IEEE 802.15.4 networks, which use a variety of protocols ranging from proprietary point-to-point to ZigBee and now IP-based mesh networking stacks (Thread). When developing connected device products for 802.15.4 networks, it is important to understand expected device and network behaviors. In wireless mesh networks, device efficiency impacts the behavior of all interacting devices.

ME1429: Meeting the Battery-Life Requirements for Your IoT Edge Node Product
An edge node, the 'thing' of the IoT, can be described by four features: 1) the transducer; 2) the interfaces connecting the transducers and microcontroller; 3) the processing (e.g. encryption, compression, protocol stack, data analysis); and 4) communication mechanism used to send/receive information between the thing and the network. When designing your edge node device, battery-life might be one of the most important factors, but how do you reliably determine the combined energy consumption of the entire platform?
