This Note introduces a novel methodology to analyze the time performance of Bluetooth gateways in multi-hop networks, known as scatternets. The methodology is focused on distinguishing between the processing time and the time that each communication between nodes takes along an implemented scatternet. This technique is not only valid for Bluetooth networks but also for other wireless networks that offer access to their middleware in order to include beacons in the operation of the nodes. We show in this Note the results of the tests carried out on a Bluetooth scatternet in order to highlight the reliability and effectiveness of the methodology. The results also validate this technique showing convergence in the results when subtracting the time for the beacons from the delay measurements.
