Re: Dec 5 - DAY 3: 802.15.4 Radio Protocols & Topology

NO RATINGS
If I were to build a large (many nodes and large distances) I would consider using IP before I invented my own protocol.  Designing network protocols (such as IP) is a very complicated business, in the sense that there are a lot of things that go wrong.  And, as you learn more about networking technologies, you would probably end up adding more features that are already provided by IP.  Or, perhaps not adding them, even though they are needed to meet your requirements.

And, if you have more than a trivial topology, you probably want some sort of automatic routing.  There are numerous routing protocols available for use in IP networks.  And, desiging a routing protocol is very complicated, in that many problems can be very subtle.
