ZigBee Alliance

Overview: The ZigBee Alliance is a group of companies that maintain and publish the ZigBee standard. The Alliance publishes application profiles that allow multiple OEM vendors to create interoperable products. The relationship between IEEE 802.15.4 and ZigBee is similar to that between IEEE 802.11 and the Wi-Fi Alliance. ZigBee is a low-cost, low-power, wireless mesh network standard. ZigBee protocols are intended for embedded applications requiring low data rates and low power consumption. The resulting network will use very small amounts of power " individual devices must have a battery life of at least two years to pass ZigBee certification. Typical applications include: home and entertainment control, wireless sensor networks, medical data collecting, smoke and intruder warning, and building automation.
