Abstract

The aggressive introduction of new smart devices for households is considered today as one of the most challenging issues in the Internet of Things (IoT) world. According to the wide variety of radio technologies used for communication between smart devices, there is a growing need to answer the question of which communication standard can be used to drive connectivity in smart homes and intelligent buildings as part of the emerging 5G ecosystem. To this end, we provide in this paper a performance analysis of Wireless M-BUS communication protocol which has recently increased its popularity especially in smart-metering domain in Western Europe. First, the developed WM-BUS module in Network Simulator 3 (NS-3) is described. Further, we investigate in detail the obtained simulation results which are compared with the real data from Kamstrup smart metering devices. More specifically, the attention is focused on the packet delivery ratio and interference between smart devices. In particular, we demonstrate that our constructed module provides adequate correlation between the results obtained from the simulation and those from real-world measurements.
