The ZigBee Alliance has announced its tenth standard.
ZigBee Gateway enables Internet connections, giving service providers, businesses and consumers the opportunity to connect ZigBee networks to the Internet.
ZigBee Gateway is the first standard for the new ZigBee Network Devices category that provides connectivity to Internet Protocol-based networks, plus access to a variety of cloud and smart phone services.
ZigBee Network Devices is the category for device specific standards designed to assist and expand ZigBee PRO-based networks. Forthcoming standards for bridge and range extender devices, currently in development, will join ZigBee Gateway in the ZigBee Network Devices category.
