Jennic has announced the commercial launch of the first large ZigBee network evaluation product. It allows customers to rapidly evaluate and deploy wireless sensor networks of 100 nodes or more in real-world industrial, office, and home environments. By combining wireless sensor nodes, software and network monitoring tools the evaluation product is ready to use out of the box.

The wireless sensor nodes provide a building monitoring application with the provision of temperature, humidity and light sensors, coupled with switches and lights. The nodes can be used as end-points, routers, coordinators and gateways with a mix of standard and high-power modules that can be either mains AC or battery powered. Each node also provides a RS232 serial port for configuration and monitoring. The nodes are preconfigured with a building monitoring application that runs on

Jennic's standard ZigBee network stack. Nodes can be modified with its Integrated Developer Environment allowing users to migrate towards their own application.

Following on from a phase of evaluation and prototyping ZigBee networks, the worldwide market is moving towards many companies undertaking trial networks in a variety of environments. The ability to deploy systems with 100 or more nodes using Jennic's wireless microcontrollers with a standard product enables development effort to be focused on the customer applications rather than the underlying wireless technology.
