ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the ZigBee Alliance that has ratified the first ZigBee specification, marking the culmination of two years of worldwide development and interoperability testing by the more than 190 member companies. ZigBee technology is designed to address the unique needs of low-cost, low power, wireless sensor networks for remote monitoring, home control, and building automation network applications in the industrial and consumer markets. Now that the ZigBee specification has been ratified, the alliance will continue to validate the specification through expanded interoperability and scalability tests and future enhancements.
