Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) have been attracting increasing interest for supporting a new generation of ubiquitous computing systems with great potential for many applications such as surveillance, environmental monitoring, health care monitoring or home automation. However, the communication paradigms in WSNs differ from the ones associated to traditional wireless networks, triggering the need for new communication protocols. In this context, the IEEE 802.11 protocol presents some

Nevertheless, when addressing applications with (soft/hard) timing requirements some Inherent paradoxes emerge, such as pro-efficiency versus timeliness. Then, it presents some timing performance analysis that unveils some directions for resolving the previously mentioned paradoxes.
