In those types of environments, the use of more retries may turn out to be necessary to avoid excessive rise of PER.
In other words, as more retries are permitted, the more resilient ZigBee system becomes to the multipath radio channel in both quantitative and qualitative manner.
The last investigated topic was concerned with evaluating the impact of the number of allowed retries R on ZigBee resilience in the presence of multipath signal components.
Of course, the improvement associated with the use of retries does not come at no price.
Thirdly, an exponential improvement in PER was demonstrated with a stepwise increase in the number of retries. Repetitions were thus shown--in quality and quantity--to be an effective and commendable means for effectively combating negative multipath effects.
