TSMP (Time Synchronized Mesh Protocol) is a networking protocol that forms the foundation of reliable, ultra low-power wireless sensor networking. Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are self-organizing, multi-hop networks of wireless sensor nodes used to monitor and control physical phenomena. Typical WSN applications include industrial process automation, commercial building climate control and security alarming.

This whitepaper provides a survey of WSN solutions and describes TSMP with enough detail to provide the technical reader with a full picture of protocol capabilities.
