    I read this as a first introduction to ZigBee The book gives a good overview of all the essential topics and serves well as a stepping stone onto the path of learning about 802.15.4 WPAN, ZigBee and ZigBee PRO networks I found Chapter 3 most useful as it helped me to get clued up with some of the terminology used in the ZigBee standard Most of the information given is rudimentary, but references are given for each chapter that will lead to reader to detailed examinations, documentation, papers, journal articles etc There s also the authors web site with links to resources You ll need IEEE membership to access most of the articles though My copy of the book was the Kindle eBook edition and some of the equations were missing when reading on the Kindle.

    Ideal for those people who want a detailed guide to ZigBee from start to finish This readable book covers most elements that you would need to know, but you must be prepared to invest the time needed to take it all in.

    If you are working on zigbee and 802.15.4 this is one of the must have books A good overview written in an engineering context So far it is the only book I have found that was really helpful If you do Google searches for pdf white papers, use the TI,Microchip,Zigbee and Motorola vendor sites and combine with this book a very good picture of the state of the art is found

    All three reviewers before me made excellent comments about this book I can not praise any better However i am disappointed with corporate domination on the standards development to explain I need space, in short here it is why While IEEE is perfecting Standard IEEE 802.15.4, ISA Automation society of America was also working on a similar standard ISA 100.11a for industrial instrument networks ISA basically had a goal of selecting one of two vendor protocols as standard, namely Emerson s WirelessHart and Honeywell s OneWireless Meantime energy sector standardized on IEEE 802.15.4 for their Smart Energy home networking Two very important specifications of the ZigBee compliant devices are being energy efficient and inexpensive, so many parameters which are not measured today because of the cost can be measured and difficult to reach locations can be monitored ISA standard does not provide neither of these, and probably will never be an internally accepted standard Here is another reason why we arre in USA falling behind in manufacturing.
