The Performance Analysis of Different Propagation Medias in Medical Body Area Network
Wireless Body Area Network (WBAN) is wearable computing network. WBAN is one of the promising technologies in Wireless Sensor Network (WSN). WBAN is one of the upcoming techniques in medical field. The depth understanding of the propagation media is essential for the design of efficient wireless communication protocols for the medical BAN. This article aims at analyzing three different propagation Medias like Radio Frequency (RF), Optical Wireless Communication (OWC) and Ultrasonic Navigation. The comparative study of various parameters like end to end delay, throughput and data transmission speed of propagation medias are performed. The simulated results showed that ultrasonic navigation propagate with maximum speed, throughput and minimum delay.
