This chapter reviews wireless communication concepts, protocols and calculations that could be applied to microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). The impacts of the unreliable wireless channel on the transport, network, data-link and physical layers of the protocol stack are discussed and the ways that wireless network protocols can mitigate these impacts described. Particular attention is given to flow control, congestion control, error control, addressing for mobility, radio/logical link control, medium access control, digital modulation and link budgets. The chapter ends with a template for how a physical layer system design might proceed.
