According to the IEEE 802.15.4 slotted Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Avoidance (CSMA/CA) algorithm, a network analysis model using analysis method of two-dimensional Markov chain was proposed. Not only the sleep mode of IEEE 802.15.4 agreement but also the condition where the backoff window reached the maximum value before the Number of Backoff (NB) were especially considered in the model. On this basis, combined with M/G/1/K queuing theory, the throughput expression was derived, and the packet arrival rate effect on the throughput was analyzed under unsaturated network. Using the simulation platform Network Simulator Version2 (NS2), the experimental results show that the theoretical analysis fits well with the simulation result, and the network throughput is described accurately. Then the effectiveness of the analytical model is validated.
