The recent development of electronics and technological advances in wireless networks have led to the development of miniaturized wireless sensors, that can be used in the field of remote healthcare patients monitoring. When interconnected in a Wireless Body Area Network (WBAN), these tinny sensors, can be positioned on or implanted inside the human body to continuously monitor several physiological parameters (temperature, blood pressure, ECG, etc....) of the patient.The purpose of this paper is to compare the impact of the two modulation schemes specific to the NB physical layer at 2.4Ghz when the scheduled access is considered, for a WBAN model consisting of 11 sensor nodes (one of which is the hub) based on the IEEE 802.15.6 standard. The numerical study focuses on three metrics: packet reception, latency, and node-level energy consumption, and is performed using the Castalia 3.3 framework, based on the OMNeT ++ platform (4.6).Castalia simulator supports the IEEE 802.15.6 standard, which justifies the choice of its use in the simulations carried out. © 2018 IEEE.
