Zigbee has been in the IoT Zone as long as we can remember. Once they where termed as the Bluetooth of Internet Of Things due to their characteristic low range and low power consumption. They have been used in creating small personal networks and low power radios because their transmission range is limited to 10-100 meters.
How Mesh Network Helps?
Now Zigbee connected to a Mesh network can be used to transmit data over long distances. They are based out of IEEE 802.15.4 communication protocols. ZigBee is best suited for intermittent transmission of data at the rate of 250 kbit/s.
