Open Ethernet Packet Analyser for IEEE 802.15.4 Networks

Open Ethernet Packet Analyser for IEEE 802.15.4 Networks

We have developed multiplatform, time-precise and low-cost packet analyser, which can be operated among various frequency bands and could be accessible remotely.

Motivation

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are becoming a wide spread technology in many application areas. Many of these networks are based on IEEE 802.15.4 standard. The ability to capture and analyze communication over the air is extremely important for the purposes of deployment process. A packet analyser is a device dedicated to this task. Several commercial analysers are currently available. However, they do not fit into our complex requirements. Our goal is to design and implement multiplatform, time-precise and low-cost packet analyser, which can be operated among various frequency bands and could be accessible remotely.

 

Communication Architecture

Features

  • multiple bands 2.4GHz and 780/868/915MHz
  • microsecond packet timestamp precision
  • remote web configuration
  • multiplatform support (Wireshark)
  • channels scanner
  • packet generator

To be implemented:

  • multiple analysers support via IEEE 1588
  • proprietary non 802.15.4 networks support
  • power over Ethernet
