Abstract

The IEEE 802.15.4 Time-Slotted Channel Hopping (TSCH) protocol has received considerable attention in many industrial applications. However, analytical models for fast performance estimation of TSCH-based networks by considering the interaction between Medium Access Control (MAC) and Physical (PHY) layers is an open problem. In this paper, we propose a stochastic model for performance analysis of TSCH-based networks including dedicated and shared links with non-ideal wireless link properties. The proposed model is scalable and is able to evaluate the MAC performance of a large-scale network quickly. The developed model is verified by simulations and real-world experiments. The results confirm the accuracy of the proposed model for large-scale networks with orders of magnitude faster execution compared to the existing model in the literature. This confirms the speed and scalability of the model, which makes it a perfect tool for network design and optimization.
