Abstract

Multi-hop techniques are very popular in Wireless Sensor Networks as they are used to solve coverage problems. The drawback of these techniques is the low reliability. The aim of this paper is to outline hardware solutions that improve the efficiency of wireless networks intended for “last mile” smart grid communication systems. Typical Wireless Sensor Networks cannot take advantage of these solutions due to power constraints. Fast carrier detection and the probability of collisions, forward error correction, data whitening, and clear channel assessment are discussed as hardware solution to improve wireless network efficiency for “last mile” smart grid communication systems. The hardware solutions significantly improve the efficiency of the wireless network intended for “last mile” smart grid communication systems.
