ZigBee Wireless Sensor and Control Network

Book Description


The First Practical Guide to Advanced Wireless Development with ZigBee Technologies. Supported by more than 270 companies, the new ZigBee standard enables powerful new wireless applications for safety, security, and control, ranging from smart energy to home automation and medical care to advanced remote control. ZigBee Wireless Control and Sensor Network brings together all the knowledge professionals need to start building effective ZigBee solutions.


The only simple, concise guide to ZigBee architecture, concepts, networking, and applications, this book thoroughly explains the entire ZigBee protocol stack and covers issues ranging from routing to security. It also presents detailed, practical coverage of ZigBee features for home automation, smart energy networking, and consumer electronics. Coverage includes · Fundamental wireless concepts: OSI Model, error detection, the ISM Band, modulation, WLAN, FHSS, DSSS, Wireless MANs, Bluetooth, and more · ZigBee essentials: applications, characteristics, device types, topologies, protocol architecture, and expanded ZigBee PRO features

  • Physical Layer, including frequency bands, data rate, channels, data/management services, transmitter power, and receiver sensitivity

  • MAC Layer: data/management services, information base, access methods, and frames

  • Network layer: data entities, NIB, device configuration, starting networks, addressing, discovery, channel scanning, and more

  • Application Support Sublayer and Application Layer, including profiles

  • ZigBee network security, including encryption, the Trust Center, security modes, and security management primitives

  • Address assignment and routing techniques

  • Alternatives to ZigBee for establishing PANs, including 6LoWPAN, WirelessHART, and Z-wave

This book will be an invaluable resource for all professionals already developing ZigBee applications–and for anyone who wants to master the ZigBee standards that are jumpstarting today’s fastest growing markets.
