Each node in a Body Area Network (BAN) needs to be assigned with a free IP address before it may participate in any sort of communication. This paper evaluates the performance of an IP address allocation scheme, namely Prophet allocation to be used for BANs. This allocation scheme is a fully decentralized addressing scheme which is applicable to BANs as it provides low latency, low communication overhead and low complexity. Relative theoretical analysis and simulation experiments have also been conducted to demonstrate its benefits which also represent the reason for the choice of this allocation scheme. It also solves the issues related to network partition and merger efficiently. © 2011 IEEE.
