WSN ZigBee Based Performance

M. A. M. El-Bendary, M. A. E. El-Tokhy


The Wireless Personal Area Networks (WPANs) technologies are merged to implement the Wireless Sensor Network (WSN). The ZigBee technology is the most one is utilized for WSN implementing. The mobility of Wireless Sensor Networks is one of the future features of this network in different applications. This paper studies the WSN performance based on the ZigBee network. Also, it presents powerful data randomizing tool based on chaotic Baker map encryption tool. The mobility capability of WSN is considered. There are many scenarios are presented to evaluate the presented technique using many different metrics. The computer experiments simulation results reveal that the superiority of the presented technique over the traditional techniques.
