ZigBee Today & Tomorrow
Technology and applications
ZigBee is a specification which defines a high level communication protocol using low power digital radios using the IEEE 802.15.4 standard. The idea behind ZigBee is that it offers an infrastructure for a Wireless Personal Area Network (WPAN) which is highly adaptive, simpler, less expensive and consumes less power than other WPANs.
