In Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN's), nodes are scattered at dicult-to-reach areas and any interaction with a node after its initial setup is usuallydicult. As such, applications designed for this kind of networks must below power and ad-hoc in nature, as the topology of such networks is usuallyunknown. In this thesis we propose a new cross-layer communication proto-col adhering to the concepts of low-power, low trac, ad-hoc WSN's. Thedesigned protocol utilizes multiple frequencies to address the link, mediumaccess control (MAC) and routing over an ad-hoc topology, while attemptingto function despite the common innate problems of such networks such aspartitioning or interference.
