### Table 1 Unslotted CSMA/CA with Backofi MAC parameters. Parameter Value

"... In PAGE 6: ...the results based on Poisson process due to space-limit in this paper. The MAC parameters used are summarized in Table1 . 1 Note that the optical bufier size of 13 octets corresponds to the minimum required for the transmis- sion of interrupted frame, while 78, 590, and 1538 octets are the bufier sizes for successful transmission of frames with size up to 66, 578, and 1526 octets, respectively, in the worst case that an incoming frame is detected just after the beginning of frame transmission.... ..."

### Table 1: Observed throughput for a network of four nodes using L-CSMA/CA and CSMA/CA for different offered loads with a Poisson arrival distribution.

2003

"... In PAGE 9: ... Here, we validate that argument through simulation, showing that, for small networks, the throughput of L-CSMA/CA remains extremely close to that of CSMA/CA even when the total aggregate traffic approaches the channel capacity. Table1 presents the throughput of a four-node network using both CSMA/CA and L-CSMA/CA for varying levels of offered load. The values were calculated by simulating the algo- rithms on the same set of Poisson arrivals.... ..."

### Table 3. Summary of the main experimental results. Although the analysis is strictly related to a specific technology (i.e., Berkeley motes) we nevertheless think that the results obtained still provides general useful information. We found that the transmission range of mica2/mica2dot sensor nodes significantly decreases in the presence of fog or rain. In addition, we found that there is a minimum distance from the ground at which sensor nodes should be set. These aspects need to be taken into account for a correct deployment of sensor nodes. Based on our experimental results, we also derived a channel model for the CSMA/CA MAC protocol used in motes. This model is very similar to the IEEE 802.11 channel model. Since
