In this paper a scheme is proposed that exploits the timing channel, i.e., the logical communication channel in which information is encoded in the timing of transmissions, in nanocommunications. The above scheme is called Timing Channel for Nanonetworks (TCN) and supports low rate communications in an energy efficient and reliable manner. Performance of TCN are analytically evaluated and compared, through numerical examples, to those achieved by traditional communication schemes. Performance results show that TCN outperforms traditional schemes in a wide range of system settings.
