The implementation of network-wide synchronization in Wireless Sensor Networks has generally been perceived by the research community to incur a considerable overhead. In this paper it is argued however that the expense for network-wide synchronization can be rather low, and that such synchronization can moreover provide opportunities for energy-efficient communication protocols. A network-wide synchronization mechanism is proposed and evaluated through both simulation and testbed experiments.
