digital radio connections between computers and related devices. ZigBee is an established set of specifications for wireless personal area networking (WPAN). WPAN Low Rate or ZigBee provides specifications for devices that have low data rates. consume very low power and are thus characterized by long battery life. ZigBee makes possible completely networked homes where all devices are able to communicate and be controlled by a single unit. The specification characterized by low data rates and very low power consumption is revolutionising home networking.ZigBee is one of the newest technologies enabling Wireless Personal Area Networks (WPAN). i.e. .

ZigBee technology will be embedded in a wide range of products and applications across consumer. line-of-sight. smoke detector and burglar alarm. ZigBee is one of the global standards of communication protocol formulated by the relevant task force under the IEEE 802. Philips. Other standards like Bluetooth and IrDA address high data rate applications such as voice. The ZigBee Alliance has been set up as “an association of companies working together to enable reliable. wirelessly networked.15. WPAN Low Rate/ZigBee is the newest and provides specifications for devices that have low data rates. HP are all members of the Alliance . and you become a juggler who has to handle not only these remotes.Introduction: When you hold the TV remote and wish to use it you have to necessarily point your control at the device. This means that the devices and the control unit would all need a common standard to enable intelligible communication.4 Wireless Networking Standards. Intel. This one-way. but also more numbers that will accompany other home appliances you are likely to use.conditioner and remotely enabled fans and lights to your room. an air. sensors and controls located within a few meters of each other.

This kind of network eliminates use of physical data buses like USB and Ethernet cables. security systems including fire alarm. and traffic no longer being one-way. cost-effective.ZigBee is an established set of specifications for wireless personal area networking (WPAN). industrial and government markets . consume very low power and are thus characterized by long battery life. monitoring and control products based on an open global standard”.
4 PHY physical layer accommodates high levels of integration by using direct sequence to permit simplicity in the analog circuitry and enable cheaper implementations. called ‘layers'. Scientific and Medical (ISM) radio bands. very low power consumption and adequate security features. the network will have several layers. low-cost and low-power”. 1. easy implementation. . short-range operations. reliable data transfer. companies will have a standards-based wireless platform optimized for the unique needs of remote monitoring and control applications. 2. The responsibility of determining the nature of the device (Coordinator / FFD or RFD) in the network. The ZigBee Standard has evolved standardized sets of solutions.layer's responsibilities include maintenance of tables that enable matching between two devices and communication among them. The target networks encompass a wide range of devices with low data rates in the Industrial. reliability. The userdefined application refers to the end device that conforms to the ZigBee Standard. For the first time. interoperability will be enabled in multi-purpose. thermostats and remote (wireless) switches. connection to a network of higher level and ultimately an uplink to the Web. This level in the ZigBee architecture includes the ZigBee Device Object (ZDO). With acceptance and implementation of ZigBee. This layer can handle huge numbers of nodes. Physical (PHY) layer : The IEEE802. So far sensor and control devices have been marketed as proprietary items for want of a standard. with building-automation controls like intruder/fire alarms. including simplicity. The APS sub. video/audio remote controls likely to be the most popular applications. These layers facilitate the features that make ZigBee very attractive: low cost. selforganizing mesh networks Architecture: Though WPAN implies a reach of only a few meters.15.layer. user-defined application profile(s) and the Application Support (APS) sub. 30 feet in the case of ZigBee. commencing and replying to binding requests and ensuring a secure relationship between devices rests with the ZDO (Zigbee Define Object). and also discovery. so designed as to enable intrapersonal communication within the network.worldwide. Network and Application Support layer : The network layer permits growth of network sans high power transmitters. the aspect that identifies other devices that operate in the operating space of any device.
and can be likened to the root of a (network) tree.3. Requiring even less memory.15. The full function device FFD : The FFD is an intermediary router transmitting data from other devices. (no flash. 3. The reduced function device RFD : This device is just capable of talking in the network. It can operate in all topologies and can act as a coordinator. . Media access control (MAC) layer : The IEEE802. and work in either of two addressing modes – star and peer-to-peer. it cannot relay data from other devices. Figure 1: IEEE 802. 1. It needs lesser memory than the ZigBee coordinator node. It is designed to store information about the network. 2.4 / ZigBee Stack Architecture Device Types: There are three different ZigBee device types that operate on these layers in any selforganizing application network. with option to enable shorter addresses to reduce packet size.4 MAC media access control layer permits use of several topologies without introducing complexity and is meant to work with large numbers of devices. and entails lesser manufacturing costs. and only one.15. ZigBee coordinator in each network to act as the router to other networks. The ZigBee coordinator node : There is one. These devices have 64-bit IEEE addresses.
.4 / ZigBee standard include the features of low power consumption. Considering the number of devices with remotes in use at present. These features are enabled by the following characteristics · 2. with battery life ranging from months to years. 40 kbps @ 915 MHz.4835 GHz. and 20 kbps @868 MHz. 868-870 MHz and 902-928 MHz. The number of channels allotted to each frequency band is fixed at sixteen (numbered 11-26). Europe. low costs and simple implementation. Australia and New Zealand . · Low power consumption.free bands: 2.4GHz and 868/915 MHz dual PHY modes. This represents three license.1%) · Channel access using Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Avoidance (CSMA .CA) · Addressing space of up to 64 bit IEEE address devices.15. longer battery life is achievable by either of two means: continuous network connection and slow but sure battery drain. an RFD will thus be cheaper than an FFD.4-2.535 networks · 50m typical range · Fully reliable “hand-shaked” data transfer protocol. entailing regular (as well as timely). The higher frequency band is applicable worldwide. recurring expenditure. needed for only two major modes (Tx/Rx or Sleep). and the lower band in the areas of North America. ZigBee Characteristics: The focus of network applications under the IEEE 802. high density of nodes per network. · Maximum data rates allowed for each of these frequency bands are fixed as 250 kbps @2. one (numbered 0) and ten (numbered 1-10) respectively.4 GHz.very little ROM and RAM). · High throughput and low latency for low duty-cycle applications (<0. or intermittent connection and even slower battery drain. In the ZigBee standard. 65. This device talks only to a network coordinator and can be implemented very simply in star topology. it is easy to see that more numbers of batteries need to be provisioned every so often.
or other stimulus.4 addresses three typical traffic types. and the rate is fixed a priori. Beacon mode is used when the coordinator runs on batteries and thus offers . Data is intermittent. 2. IEEE 802. The device needs to connect to the network only when communication is necessitated.fro data traffic. beacon or non-beacon to enable the to-and. as in the case of say smoke detectors. Depending on allotted time slots. This type enables optimum saving on energy.15. Data is repetitive. called GTS (guaranteed time slot). 3.4 MAC can accommodate all the types. The application dictates the rate. The application.· Different topologies as illustrated below: star. Data is periodic. mesh Figure 2: ZigBee Topologies Traffic Types: ZigBee/IEEE 802. 1.15. checks for data and deactivates. ZigBee employs either of two modes. devices operate for fixed durations. determines the rate. peer-to-peer. and the sensor activates.
This in turn means an increase in power consumption by the coordinator's receiver. or wake up sooner to be sure not to miss the beacon. the sensors ‘spring to attention'. in fact. locks on and looks for messages addressed to it. whereas the non-beacon mode finds favour when the coordinator is mains-powered. However. all the devices in a mesh network know when to communicate with each other. On detection of activity. and transmit to the ever-waiting coordinator's receiver (since it is mains-powered). The devices wake up and confirm their continued presence in the network at random intervals. necessarily. the coordinator dictates a schedule for the next beacon so that the device ‘goes to sleep'. there is the remotest of chances that a sensor finds the channel busy. in which case the receiver unfortunately would ‘miss a call'. entailing an optimal increase in costs. While using the beacon mode. In this mode. . the timing circuits have to be quite accurate. If message transmission is complete. a device watches out for the coordinator's beacon that gets transmitted at periodically. In the beacon mode. as in smoke detectors and burglar alarms.maximum power savings. the coordinator itself switches to sleep mode.

frame for sending beacons after every 15. The four frame structures are • • • • Beacon frame for transmission of beacons Data frame for all data transfers Acknowledgement frame for successful frame receipt confirmations MAC command frame These frame structures and the coordinator's super. . The coordinator lays down the format for the super. All protocol layers contribute headers and footers to the frame structure. Within each time slot. this particular IEEE standard defines a quartet frame structure and a super.38 ms or/and multiples thereof. This interval is determined a priori and the coordinator thus enables sixteen time slots of identical width between beacons so that channel access is contention.frame structure used optionally only by the coordinator. access is contention-based. such that the total overheads for each data packet range are from 15 octets (for short addresses) to 31 octets (for 64-bit addresses).Figure 5: ZigBee Network Model For the sake of simplicity without jeopardising robustness. up to 252s.less.frame structure play critical roles in security of data and integrity in transmission.
the coordinator provides as many as seven GTS (guaranteed time slots) for every beacon interval to ensure better quality. The earlier Bluetooth targets interfaces between PDA and other device (mobile phone / printer etc) and cordless audio applications. mainly. ZigBee's 32 KB is about one-third of the stack size necessary in other wireless technologies (for limited capability end devices. In terms of protocol stack size. extremely low power consumption for (long) life. Therefore they are naturally different in their approach to their respective application arenas. and rapid ROI. Airbee Wireless Inc has tied up with Radiocrafts AS to deliver "out-of-the-box" ZigBee-ready solutions. Applications: The ZigBee Alliance targets applications "across consumer. very fast market adoption. The bandwidth of Bluetooth is 1 Mbps. industrial and government markets worldwide". but need only small data packets and. Technology Comparisons: The “Why ZigBee” question has always had an implied. A comparative study of the two can be found . In a gist. Unwired applications are highly sought after in many networks that are characterized by numerous nodes consuming minimum power and enjoying long battery lives. the former supplying the software and the latter making the .Nonetheless. The IEEE 802. for the reason that it enables reduced costs of development. ZigBee's is one. which are very many in number. but just essential standards for different targeted applications. The strength of Bluetooth lies in its ability to allow interoperability and replacement of cables. is low costs and long battery life. Most important in any meaningful comparison are the diverse application areas of all the different wireless technologies. whereas ZigBee is meant to cater to the sensors and remote controls market and other battery operated products. ZigBee's.4–based ZigBee is designed for remote controls and sensors. Bluetooth is meant for such target areas as wireless USB's. the stack size is as low as 4 KB). but never quite worded follower phrase “…when there is Bluetooth”. handsets and headsets. it may be said that they are neither complementary standards nor competitors. commercial.fourth of this value.15.ZigBee technology is designed to best suit these applications. of course.
