ZigBee is a set of application profiles, built on top of the IEEE 802.15.4 standard, which defines a low cost, low power, reliable mesh network with guaranteed interoperability with other like networks. IEEE 802.15.4 defines a robust choice of peer-to-peer, star, tree and mesh networks – all optimized for low-bandwidth, low-power monitoring and control. In addition to define the upper layers in the ISO OSI protocol, ZigBee has defined several application profiles including:

• Smart Energy — Defines the features of the Home Area Network for Smart Grid enabled appliance, lights, heating, cooling, and electric vehicle charging • Home Automation — Smart lighting, advanced temperature control, safety and security, movies and music, water sensors, power sensors, energy monitoring, smoke and fire detectors, and access sensors • Telecom (mobile) Services — m-payment, m-monitoring and control, m-security and access control, and location aware services. • Building Automation — Energy monitoring, HVAC, lighting, access control, asset management, environmental management, and energy management. • Health Care — secure and reliable monitoring of patients with chronic diseases

This talk with discuss the IEEE 802.15.4 standard, the ZigBee stack, and how the standard is able to support low power sensor networks with and without the ZigBee stack.
