Customize It:

  • We can adapt this ZigBee Training course to your group’s background and work requirements at little to no added cost.
  • If you are familiar with some aspects of this training course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
  • We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the ZigBee Training around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
  • If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the training course in a manner understandable to lay audiences.


After completing this ZigBee Training Fundamentals course, attendees will be able to:

  • Discover the challenges of providing connectivity to devices that are operating in highly variable and lossy RF environments
  • Build a solid understanding of the IEEE 802.15.4 Wireless PAN standard that was defined to support short-range connectivity between devices (the foundation of the ZigBee specification)
  • Understand the ZigBee specifications and the evolution of the ZigBee Pro. Key features including mesh networking will be discussed.
  • Explore the higher layer ZigBee profiles, clusters, and attributes that are enabling sensor applications and services
  • Describe how ZigBee IP is incorporating the IETF IP protocols including 6LoWPAN and RPL
  • Gain insights into the importance of ZigBee and how one can better manage that importance in their job functions
