A Bluetooth Scatternet Formation Algorithm for Networks with Heterogeneous Device Capabilities
This paper focuses on Bluetooth, a promising new wireless technology, developed mainly as a cable replacement. We argue that, in practice, Bluetooth devices will have different power capabilities, classifying them as either high-power or low-power nodes. We propose a deterministic, distributed algorithm that accounts for the physical properties of devices, connecting nodes into a scatternet of small diameter. The proposed protocol results in a high effective throughput and allows components to arrive and leave arbitrarily, dynamically updating the cluster formation. Performance is evaluated through extensive ns-2 simulations.
