The ZigBee Alliance has approved ZigBee 3.0, opening new doors for improved communication and interoperability between products used in applications ranging from connected home, intelligent buildings and smart cities to connected lighting, energy efficiency and other applications.

A non-profit association of companies, the ZigBee Alliance creates open, global standards that define the Internet of Things (IoT) for use in consumer, commercial and industrial applications.

Helping to lead the standards groups to collaborate with the ZigBee Alliance on fulfilling this vision for the IoT is the EnOcean Alliance. The two groups will work together to combine the benefits of EnOcean Equipment Profiles (EEPs) already widely adopted in the sub-one GHz frequency with the newly ratified ZigBee 3.0 solution in the worldwide 2.4GHz frequency band.

ZigBee 3.0 is the first single unified, open and complete wireless IoT product development solution of its kind. It extends all the way from the physical to application layer, and includes certification and branding for improved interoperability across a growing range of market segments. Based on proven ZigBee PRO Mesh networking and with unique Green Power support for advanced energy-harvesting devices, ZigBee 3.0 is fully compatible with existing ZigBee Home Automation and ZigBee Light Link standards.
