Although the ZigBee communication protocol is popularly adopted in wireless sensor networks (WSNs), it is rather immature compared with Internet Protocol (IP) which has been developed over the past 40 years. ZigBee networks can not directly communicate with current Internet. It always needs a gateway to collect required data from a ZigBee network and to convert the ZigBee protocol to IP. Moreover, it scales poorly on routing and network management. On the contrary, Internet Protocol, especially… CONTINUE READING
