ZigBee versus Other Protocols and Standards

Kumar Padmanabh, Sougata Sen, Sanjoy Paul

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The business consumer drives the development of any new system. The development of any new system is based on a consumer’s need. But sometimes the consumer’s need is created artificially by business houses. However, industrial standards are created for different reasons. One of the corporate houses develops some product and hence has its monopoly in the market. The competitors of the said company feel left out in the race and hence create new competitive products. By this time end users or consumers are habituated with the older product. Replacement of older products by new products will become chaotic as the system may be entirely different. Therefore a standard system is created to make the system simple, interoperable and easy to use.
