With application development of wireless sensor networks, there are some scenarios exited mobile nodes. This motivates the research towards the mobile wireless sensor networks (MWSNs). IEEE 802.11 standard medium access control (MAC) is designed mainly for wireless local and metropolitan area network and used in Mobile Ad-hoc Networks. Its capability whether to suit MWSN has not yet been discovered. This study is to analyze and evaluate the suitability of IEEE 802.11 MAC in MWSN. The simulation is simulated on newly released Network Simulator NS-3. By means of some examples, the results show the energy consumption, delay and packet delivery ratio performance.
