ZigBee is a protocol stack created specifically for control of sensor networks which is built on IEEE 802.15.4, this standard works for low data rate Wireless Personal Area Networks (WPAN). The IEEE 802.15.4 standard works on PHY and MAC Layer. The IEEE 802.15.4 has become the preferable PAN system for wireless sensor networks and many software and hardware platforms are based on it. The implementation and performance analysis of this standard is needed to understand the conceptual limitations of it. This standard is designed for low data rate, low power consumption, long battery life. The implementation & performance analysis of this standard is needed to understand the conceptual limitations of it.
