Nowadays, most wireless technology focuses on increasing high data throughput. A set of applications such as industrial, agricultural, vehicular, residential and medical require simple wireless connectivity, relaxed throughput, very low power, short distances and low cost. The IEEE 802.15.4 standard was specifically designed to support low power with low data rate networks where latency and bit rate are not so critical. This is in response to the rapid usage growth in this area [1]. IEEE 802.15.4 standard goes beyond the current state of the art where a 403 MHz medical implant communication services (MICS) is used for implant-to-controller, point-to-point communication without networking support [2]. The aim of this study is to analyze a wireless body area network (WBAN) based on IEEE 802.15.4 standard, configured as a star network where the coordinating device is placed outside the body. The performance of data transmission between nodes to Personal Area Network (PAN) coordinator is observed.
