A Study of Zigbee Technology
The zigbee communication is a communication technology to connect local wireless nodes and provides high stability and transfer rate due to data communication with low power. In the nodes away from coordinator in one PAN, the signal strength is weak causing the network a shortage of low performance and inefficient use of resources due to transferring delay and increasing delay time and thus cannot conduct seamless communication. This study suggests the grouping method, that makes it possible to perform wide range data transferring depending on the node signal strength in zigbee node and analyzes the suggested algorithm through simulation. Based on IEEE 802.15.4 Low Rate-Wireless Personal Area Network (LR-WPAN) standard, the Zigbee standard has been proposed to interconnect simple, low rate and battery powered wireless devices.
