Topic: Piconet


In the News (Sat 25 Oct 14)

  
  Piconet: Embedded Mobile Networking
Piconet is an attempt to understand the implications of the provision of wireless connectivity at the level described here.
Piconet provides a broad range of mobile and embedded computing objects with the ability to exploit an awareness of, and connectivity to, their environment.
Piconet is presently limited to 40 kb/s by the size and cost of the available radio transceivers, but if we can move to higher bit rates, we must seriously consider a secondary radio or the use of timing protocols for rendezvous purposes.

 Personal area network - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A Bluetooth PAN is also called a piconet, and is composed of up to 8 active devices in a master-slave relationship (up to 255 devices can be connected in "parked" mode).
The first Bluetooth device in the piconet is the master, and all other devices are slaves that communicate with the master.
A piconet typically has a range of 10 meters, although ranges of up to 100 meters can be reached under ideal circumstances.

 Frontline Test Equipment: BPA105 - Characteristics
Instead, after synchronizing to the piconet it passivelylistens in and logs all baseband packets transmitted between the master and slaves of the piconet.
Piconet Mode - In Piconet Mode, the protocol analyzer uses its fully Bluetooth qualified protocol stack and participates as the master or a slave in a piconet.
Piconet Mode is useful when the developer requires a known reference device in the piconet or needs to generate user-defined errors and packets for stress testing.

 Bluetooth; How networks are formed and controlled
The connection procedure for a non-existent piconet is initiated by any of the devices, which then becomes master of the piconet thus created.
However, since the piconet parameters are derived from the device addresses and clock of the Master, a Master-Slave switch involves a redefinition of the piconet as well; a piconet switch.
As a consequence of this piconet switch, other slaves in the piconet, not involved in the switch, have to be logically moved to the new piconet.

3, piconet 1 includes a master node 303 and the slave nodes 301,302 and 304; piconet 2 includes the master node 305 and the slave nodes 304,306,307 and 308; and piconet 3 includes the master node 309 and the slave nodes 308,310 and 311.
In addition, MCS piconets may also move some of the nodes from a full piconet to a less occupied piconet in order to let the less occupied piconet incorporate more of the nodes, or to incorporate more nodes into piconets within the less occupied node's reach.
In each piconet that the message passes through the master node of the particular piconet selects a number of candidate nodes, if any, and stores them in the message before it is forwarded to the next node in the MCS path.

 How Bluetooth Technology Works
A piconet starts with two connected devices, such as a portable PC and cellular phone, and may grow to eight connected devices.
However, when establishing a piconet, one unit will act as a master and the other(s) as slave(s) for the duration of the piconet connection.
In a piconet there is a master unit whose clock and hopping sequence are used to synchronize all other devices in the piconet.

In the case where any of these remaining nodes is a forwarding node, which is not connected to the piconet containing the node from which the cancellation of broadcast message was received by the receiving node, the cancellation of broadcast message is forwarded to this forwarding node.
At the master unit M3 of the piconet No. 3, the broadcast message is replaced by a cancellation of broadcast message, which is a source C of the cancellation of broadcast message, e.
At the slave unit, the source C in the piconet No. 1, the broadcast message, as already was mentioned, is replaced by the cancellation of broadcast message, since the source C avoids redundant distribution of the broadcast message by the node that received the broadcast message.

In this paper we propose a flexible polling mechanism for the master that begins with common polling periods for all slaves and subsequently increases the polling period for slaves with less traffic load.
This paper proposes a flexible piconet scheduling mechanism which is not incompatible with a) and b) and involves variable-rate polling; the master-slave connections with little (but not dormant) activity are polled less frequently.
In Section 4, the throughput and access latencies of the piconet under flexible polling is compared by simulation to that under standard polling.

 Message Routing Over a (Bluetooth) Scatternet - Ron Alterovitz
However, piconets may overlap, so a slave in one piconet can be a master or slave in an adjacent piconet.
Thus, any device in a piconet can connect to a device in an adjacent piconet, if it is within range, and route messages to any device in that piconet.
For ease of future development, the piconet simulator and the scatternet routing protocols are compiled as libraries.

 United States Patent Application: 0040235489
In a conventional piconet, a piconet coordinator transmits a beacon for channel synchronization to each device connected to the piconet at a predetermined time interval.
Since the piconet coordinator 1 calculates a time required for moving to a new channel and informs the sending device 110 of the time by setting an RTP field of a relay response as shown in FIG.
After the RTP passes, the piconet operates in the new channel (because the time required for moving to the new channel is calculated and set), and the sending device 110 and the receiving device 120 perform the peer-to-peer communication again in step 10.

 Direct Communication Among Slaves: Questions/Views
The only way for a slave to communicate with another slave is to create a new piconet with the former as the master and the latter as the slave.
All of the communications between the slaves in a piconet must go through the master of that piconet only.
There is one point to arise: You might ask: what if an active slave in a piconet [A] becomes a master for other piconet [B] while he is still a slave at piconet [A], i.e.

Several piconets can be collocated and this is due to the specific RF technology adopted in Bluetooth.
Once a station becomes a member of the piconet, there is no contention for access to the medium, as it transmits and receives at predefined slot instances.
In addition to the piconet network topology the specification defines the notion of "scatternet", that is a network formed by interconnected piconets where members belong "simultaneously" to more than one piconets.

 What is piconet? - A Word Definition From the Webopedia Computer Dictionary
A piconet is formed when at least two devices, such as a portable PC and a cellular phone, connect.
When a piconet is formed, one device acts as the master while the others act as slaves for the duration of the piconet connection.
"Piconet" is a combination of the prefix "pico," meaning very small or one trillionth, and network.

 Baseband Layer Tutorial
The hopping sequence is unique for the piconet and is determined by the Bluetooth device address (BD_ADDR) of the master; the phase in the hopping sequence is determined by the Bluetooth clock of the master.
Since each piconet has a different master, the piconets hop independently, each with their own channel hopping sequence and phase as determined by the respective master.
The piconet is synchronized by the system clock of the master.To transmit on the piconet channel you need 3 pieces of information, The (channel) hopping sequence, the phase of the sequence, and the CAC to place on the packets

Piconets are uncoordinated and hop independently: synchronization of different piconets is not permitted in the unlicensed ISM band.
A master unit can also periodically jump to another piconet and act as a slave (were it to act as a master in the new piconet, that piconet would have the same channel parameters as the “old” piconet—therefore, by definition the two would be indiscernible).
Piconet Y consists of master Y and slaves Ay, By, and Dy.

 Masters and Slaves: Roles in a Bluetooth Piconet   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
This is because a piconet is a group of devices all synchronized on a hopping sequence set by the master.
Figure 3 shows what happens if a Bluetooth device is a slave on one piconet but has to visit another piconet where it is the master, perhaps to poll a slave to comply with a polling interval that it has negotiated.
Thus, timing that worked for a device that is the master on one piconet and a slave on another would be wrong for a device that was a slave on two piconets.

 Piconet - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A piconet is an ad-hoc network of computing devices using Bluetooth technology protocols to allow one master device to interconnect with up to seven active slave devices (because a three-bit MAC address is used).
Many other slave devices can be inactive, or parked, and the master device can bring parked devices back into active status at any time.

Every piconet has a master-slave configuration and the master arbitrates channel access between slaves by using an intra-piconet scheduling algorithm.
Several intra-piconet scheduling algorithms have been proposed in the literature but all are designed for single piconets, and may not perform well when multiple piconets are interconnected in a scatternet.
BrP uses the availability information of the slave nodes in the current piconet – their presence and absence – and compensates the bridge nodes for their periods of absence to provide performance enhancement.
