ZigBee is a new wireless technology developed by the ZigBee Alliance to overcome the limitations of BLUETOOTH and Wi-Fi. ZigBee is developed on the top of IEEE 802.15.4 standard. It is designed for low-power consumption allowing batteries to essentially last forever. ZigBee devices allow batteries to last up to years using primary cells (low cost) without any chargers (low cost and easy installation).
The ZigBee standard provides network, security, and application support services operating on top of the IEEE 802.15.4.IEEE 802.15.4 standard has two basic layers medium Access Control (MAC) and Physical Layer (PHY) wireless standard. The network layer supports various topologies such star, peer to peer topology and self healing mesh topology. Apart from easy installation and easy implementation ZigBee has a wide application area such as home networking, industrial networking, many more having different profiles specified for each field. The upcoming of ZigBee will revolutionize the home networking and rest of the wireless world.
