ZigBee Training In-depth:

ZigBee Training In-depth Course (Online, Onsite, and Classroom Live!)

ZigBee is a short-range wireless technology targeted at telemetry, measurement, control, and monitoring. It is very low power and ideally suited for this marketplace. This ZigBee Training In-depth course examines the use of ZigBee and its application

After many years and millions of implementations every year, ZigBee standards prove you can rely on the widest variety of smart and easy-to-use products for just about anywhere you work, live, or play. Our innovative standards are designed to let product manufacturers help their customers create their own Internet of Things and M2M wireless sensor networks to gain greater control of, and even improve, everyday activities.

ZigBee lets you easily and cost-effectively add intelligent new features that improve the efficiency, safety, security, reliability, and convenience of your products. You can help your customers save both energy and money, or give them the tools they need to gain control of their homes. It’s even possible to help people maintain their independence and allow them to closely monitor their health and fitness.

ZigBee defines many different device types and commands to insure seamless device interoperability and interworking. IEEE 802.15.4 occupies the bottom layers of the ZigBee protocol stack, the applications sit at the top of the stack, and the ZigBee Network (NWK) layer between them.
