Design a Reliable RIIM Network Using TSCH! Simulation Results Presented!

In our newest Application Note, AN055: RIIM Network Design: Theory, Guidelines & Simulations Results, we introduce Radiocrafts’ highly reliable and long-range wireless IP mesh solution (RIIM) and the Time-Synchronized Channel-Hopping (TSCH) feature available in RIIM.

TSCH was designed to make a mesh with less packet collision and higher reliability. A TSCH network has proven to have a reliability of up to 99.99%.

In the application note, we also present design guidelines for a reliable RIIM network using the different modes available for TSCH as well as simulation results for the presented design guidelines. This helps our customers draw expectations from their RIIM networks.

The different modes in TSCH, described in detail, include:

  • Passive Mode (Receiver-Based TSCH)
  • Active Mode (Sender-Based TSCH)

Being sender-based or receiver-based refers to the base upon which nodes turn their radios on to send or receive data packets.

The TSCH design guidelines and simulations results include:

  • TSCH in passive mode, low power settings
  • TSCH in passive mode, high throughput settings
  • TSCH in passive mode, balanced settings
  • TSCH in active mode
  • TSCH enhanced beacon rate
