Zigbee® vs Bluetooth® in IoT Applications
Experts at Digi International compare two of the most popular wireless protocols – Zigbee® and Bluetooth® in IoT Applications.
Local communications in Internet of Things (IoT) applications require an excellent wireless protocol. While there are many options out there for developers, we will focus on two of the most-used protocols, Zigbee® and Bluetooth® in IoT Applications.
Both of these protocols are great choices, but each has specific strengths. Your ultimate choice will depend on what you want your wireless protocol to do for you. That said, it is possible to implement the two simultaneously, leveraging the combined strengths of both.
This white paper is intended to help you make an informed decision between the two protocols. You will learn about the pros and cons of Zigbee and three types of Bluetooth — Bluetooth Mesh, BLE, and Bluetooth Classic. We will describe what each offers and demonstrate how to get the best out of them. This should put you in a better position to choose the right protocol for your IoT application, whether you are deploying digital signage, smart city applications, mission critical industrial IoT projects or other connected use cases.
Here are some specific areas we will focus on this white paper:
- Each protocol technology explained
- Strengths and weaknesses of each protocol
- Practical applications for each protocol
- And much more!
