A ZigBee network is a low cost and low power wireless network based on the IEEE 802.15.4 standard, which allows wireless connectivity with limited power and relax throughput requirements. On the other hand, the Universal Mobile Telecommunication System (UMTS) is third generation cellular network that provides high speed wireless traffic transfer to the internet .This paper presents the design and implementation of the novel integrated ZigBee and UMTS hybrid network in the Network Simulators (NS-2). In this hybrid network, the authors design a new mobile gateway to inter-connect these two different sub-networks.
