Abstract: The Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm is seeing rapid adoption across multiple domains—industry, enterprise, agriculture, smart cities, households, only to name a few. IoT applications often require wireless autonomy, thereby placing challenging requirements on communication techniques and power supply methods. Wireless networking using devices with constrained energy, as often is the case in wireless sensor networks (WSN), provokes explicit considerations around the conservation of the supplied power on the one hand and the efficiency of the power drawn and energy used on the other. As radio communications characteristically consume the bulk of all energy in wireless IoT systems, this constrained energy budget combined with aspirations for terminal device lifetime sets requirements for the communications protocols and techniques used. This thesis examines two open architecture low-power wide-area network (LPWAN) standards with mesh networking support, along with their energy consumption profile in the context of power-constrained wireless sensor networks. The introductory section is followed by an overview of IoT and WSN foundations and technologies. The following section describes the IEEE 802.15.4 standard and ecosystem, followed by the Bluetooth LE and Bluetooth Mesh standards. A discussion on these standards' characteristics, behavior, and applicability to power-constrained sensor networks is presented.
