Transmission of the acknowledgement frame after a packet reception is optional in the IEEE 802.15.4 standard. Considering a set of sensor nodes, each of which has a packet to transmit at the beginning of an active period, we provide an analysis that yields the packet loss statistics of the non-acknowledgement mode of the standard. The analysis is based on a non-stationary Markov chain model and its accuracy is verified by ns-2 simulations
