ZigBee Wireless Sensor and Control Network


      Wireless Sensor and Control Networks are quickly becoming an integral part of the automation process within chemical plants, refineries and commercial buildings. As such, the market for wireless sensor and control networks is growing fast; so much so that, according to the RIFD Journal [www.rfidjournal.com/article/3634/-1/1], it will be a five billion dollar industry by the year 2011. ZigBee is a new standard developed by the ZigBee® Alliance for Personal Area Network (PAN). The ZigBee Alliance is a consortium that promotes the ZigBee standard for a low rate/low power wireless sensor and control network.  The ZigBee protocol stack is built on top of IEEE 802.15.4 which defines the Medium Access Control (MAC) and physical layers for Low Rate Wireless Personal Network (LR-WPAN). The following is a list of the more common applications for wireless sensor and control networks.
      1. Building and home automation
      1. Industrial and process automation
      1. Energy and utility automation
      1. RFID and logistics
