Low-Rate Wireless Networks Amendment 4: Higher Rate (2 Mb/s) Physical (PHY) Layer
|Publication Date:||14 February 2017|
This introduction is not part of IEEE Std 802.15.4t-2017, IEEE Standard for Low-Rate Wireless Networks, Amendment 4: Higher Rate (2 Mb/s) Physical (PHY) Layer
This amendment defines an additional data rate for the minimum shift keying (MSK) PHY specified in IEEE Std 802.15.4-2015, and any MAC modifications needed to support its implementation.
The new data rate, 2000 kbps, is specified for the 2400-2483.5 MHz band, and has the same occupied bandwidth as the present 2450 MHz 0-QPSK physical layer. This data rate enables the use of devices with low energy consumption that operate in short, high-speed bursts, followed by relatively long sleep periods, resulting in a low-rate network with improved battery life.
