ZigBee 3.0 Training by TONEX. ZigBee 3.0: The Foundation for the Internet of Things

Learn about 802.15.4 PHY and MAC layers, ZigBee protocol layers, applications and profiles, ZigBee PRO, ZigBee 3.0, ZigBee IP and 6LowPAN and explore how ZigBee 3.0 will create a unique platform and framework for the foundation for the Internet of Things (IoT).

ZigBee 3.0 is a single standard providing seamless interoperability among variety of smart devices and innovative products and services.

ZigBee 3.0 is based on ZigBee PRO ans is designed for device-to-device networking applicable to M2M and IoT.

ZigBee PRO is:

  • low-power
  • low-cost
  • simple with mesh networking
  • reliable for very small devices or simple sensors.

ZigBee 3.0 will simplify the choice for creating Internet of Things (IoT) products and services enabling communication and interoperability among devices for smart homes, connected lighting, and many other markets .

What is ZigBee 3.0?

ZigBee 3.0 is based on IEEE 802.15.4, which operates at 2.4 GHz (a frequency available for use around the world) and uses ZigBee PRO networking to enable reliable communication in the smallest, lowest-power devices.

ZigBee specification defined by ZigBee Alliance enhances the IEEE 802.15.4 standard by adding and enhancing network and security layers and an application framework with multiple profiles:

  • A set of devices required in a specific application area such as Smart Energy
  • A set of clusters to implement the required functionality
  • A set of attributes to represent device state in at any given time
  • A set of commands to enable the communication of the device and between devices
  • Specification of which clusters are required by which devices
  • Specific functional description for each device
  • Profile test specification
  • Set of PICS for device conformance specification
  • Set of test cases for conformance testing

Why ZigBee 3.0?

ZigBee is  built on unlicensed  2.4 GHz. ZigBee is a low-power wireless technology, allowing battery-operated devices and sensors such as ZigBee Home Automation devices and ZigBee Smart Energy devices to operate for up to seven years under certain conditions. Especially ZigBee devices using the Green Power feature, no batteries needed anymore. ZigBee is a reliable and robust wireless technology using multi-hop mesh networking. This eliminates single points of failure and expand the reach of networks.

Scalability of ZigBee technology can support networks of thousands of nodes in a smart home or a smart city providing the smart networking for the future.

ZigBee is secure using a variety of security mechanisms such as advanced encryption AES-128, device and network keys and frame counters.

ZigBee PRO and  ZigBee PRO with Green Power deliver key requirements of device-to-device communication, the foundation of the Internet of Things:

  • Full wireless mesh of ZigBee products such as sensors, switches, dimmers and many other devices.
  • Low-power networking capable of supporting more than 64,000 devices on a single network
  • IEEE 802.15.4 radios
  • Battery-less devices to join ZigBee PRO networks
