ZigBee

Based on IEEE 802.15.4 standard, ZigBee was developed for the purpose of sending small amounts of data, short distances, using very little power. Key features of this technology is the ability to create a self healing mesh network where nodes “talk” to each other in a way that gets a message to a desired end point using the best path. When not in use, nodes will “sleep” using extremely little power.

  • Frequency: 2.4 GHz
  • Encryption: Yes
  • Network Size: 64k
  • Battery Life: Years
  • Speed: 250 kBs



SNAP

This high-performance stack is designed to run efficiently on cost-effective 8-bit microprocessors.While providing full mesh capabilities, SNAP has a very small memory footprint of only 40 KB, thereby leaving more space for user applications. The SNAP stack includes a Python virtual machine (the combination of SNAP and Python is referred to as SNAPpy). End-user wireless applications are compiled into processor-independent "byte code" that is run on the SNAPpy virtual machine. This means that the same application can be run on any processor without the need for recompilation.

  • Frequency: 2.4 GHz
  • Encryption: Available
  • Network Size: 64k
  • Battery Life: Years
  • Speed: 250 kBs



WirelessHART

WirelessHART It is the wireless version of the HART protocol which is the most used in the automation and industrial applications which require real time. It uses Time Synchronized Mesh Protocol (TSMP). A "time coordinator" node is required in order to assign the time slot to all the motes.Radios comply with IEEE 802.15.4-2006 is a robust technology that is simple to implement. It enables users to quickly and easily gain the benefits of wireless technology while maintaining compatibility with existing HART devices, tools and systems.

  • Radios comply with IEEE 802.15.4-2006
  • 2.4GHz license free frequency band
  • Robust, multi-tiered, always-on security
  • Industry standard 128-bit AES encryption
  • Unique encryption key for each message
  • Data integrity and device authentication
