Fault-tolerant beacon vector routing (FBVR) is an efficient technique for routing in the presence of node failures. Several common wireless topologies exist that can be used with this technique. This paper compares the power consumption of various regular topologies using FBVR and makes appropriate recommendations. The topology types include mesh, torus, communication graph, and F-cycle ring (FCR). An existing analytical method for power consumption prediction is used. The results of this analytical method are compared against simulation results, which match closely, showing a high level of confidence in the power consumption results.
