Short summary
A test method for narrowband wireless sensor/actuator networks is presented, facilitating affordable and efficient performance and compliance tests. Employing frequency/time division multiple access (F/TDMA) techniques and protocol synchronization, the complexity can siginificantly be reduced. Thus, complete communication testing becomes technically feasible and affordable.
