Furthermore, without controlling the beaconing rate of network nodes, it is possible that a given node broadcasts all of its beacon messages before its neighbors finalize their beacon transmissions.
However, due to the infrastructureless nature of wireless sensor networks, it is almost impossible to determine the optimal beaconing rate of individual nodes before network deployment.

When verifying beaconing protocol, much of the attention is focused on the beacon period occupancy information element (BPOIE) (Table 1).
Fundamental to testing beaconing protocol is the capability to capture and display frames from multiple participating devices over extended periods.
