The Zigbee Alliance is rapidly becoming the force that is defining the standards for smart device communications for the Internet of Things. Zigbee is the original and only open standard for the IoT. The alliance is made up of over 400 member organizations whose products comprise the ZigBee ecosystem.
You can’t have a Connect the Dots blog for IoT solution providers and not discuss dotdot, the new – new – universal language for connecting IoT devices. The protocol is still being birthed by the ZigBee Alliance, but by 2018 certified “smart” objects will be able to work together across any network.
