ZigBee Role in Smart SSL and the IoT May Change to Application Layer

The ZigBee Alliance and the Thread Group have announced successful demonstrations of Thread-based Internet of Things (IoT) wireless networks connecting smart devices that run what the ZigBee group is now calling the ZigBee universal language. In the past, the ZigBee Alliance has championed its own full network stack, although it’s not fundamentally Internet Protocol (IP) based, whereas the Thread network stack is inherently based on an IPv6 stack. Despite finding some success in smart lighting, it appears that ZigBee’s IoT future may be at the application layer of the network stack and the combination of Thread and ZigBee will be on display at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, NV. The ZigBee wireless network has been seen by many as the most mature of the networking technologies that might underlie lighting in an IoT future. http://www.ledsmagazine.com/
