.Basic Architecture.

Basic Architecture. key management and authentication). 2. . 1.Physical/Data Link Level ‡ The Physical/Data Link level is concerned with low-level network operation such as addressing and message transmission/reception. 3. routing and security (encryption.Application Level ‡ The Application level contains the applications that run on the network node.ZigBee Stack Level ‡ It consists of stack layers concerned with network structure.

4 PHY ‡ Features ± Activation/Deactivation of radio transceiver ± Energy Detection (ED) ± Link Quality Indication (LQI) ± Channel Selection ± Clear Channel Assessment (CCA) ± Transmission/Reception of packets over physical medium .15.IEEE 802.

15.4 PHY ‡ PHY protocol data unit ± SHR ± allows receiving device to synchronize with bit stream ± PHR ± contains frame length information ± Variable length payload carrying MAC sublayer frame .IEEE 802.

4 MAC ‡ Features ± Beacon Management ± Channel Access ± Guaranteed Time Slot (GTS ) management ± Frame Validation ± Acknowledged Frame Delivery ± Association/Dissassociation with PAN coordinator .15.IEEE 802.

4 MAC ‡ Superframe Structure ± Format defined by coordinator ± Bounded by network beacons ± Divided into 16 equally sized slots .IEEE 802.15.

Application layer. where messages can originate and terminate. Endpoints These application instances on a node are said to be endpoints. Endpoint addresses for user applications are numbered from 1 to 240. ZigBee Device Objects (ZDO) Endpoint address 0 on each node is reserved for a special application called the ZDO (ZigBee Device Objects). .


Application frameworks and saps ‡ Application Framework The Application Framework (AF) contains the application objects and facilitates interaction between the applications and the APS layer ‡ Service Access Points A Service Access Point (SAP) implements a set of operations to pass information and commands between layers .

. Request . 4.‡ There are usually four types of operation implemented by a SAP: 1. Indication. Confirm. Response. 3. 2.
