This Digi International paper discusses the advantages and provides comparisons of Zigbee vs. DigiMesh mesh networking protocols.
Mesh networking is a powerful way to route data. This methodology extends range capabilities by allowing data to hop from node to node. Mesh networking also increases reliability through “self-healing,” which is the ability to create alternate paths when one node fails or a connection is lost. This Digi International paper discusses the advantages and provides comparisons of Zigbee vs. DigiMesh mesh networking protocols.
Zigbee is one popular mesh networking protocol, and was developed by the Zigbee® alliance. Digi International offers several products based on the Zigbee protocol, which is specifically designed for low-data rate, low-power applications. Additionally, Digi International offers an alternate mesh protocol, called DigiMesh. Both Zigbee and DigiMesh offer unique advantages important to different applications.
This white paper discusses those advantages and provides comparisons of Zigbee and DigiMesh to help you select the right protocol for your application requirements. It brings out points, such as:
- What is DigiMesh?
- What are the advantages of DigiMesh vs. Zigbee?
- A comparison chart of Zigbee and DigiMesh mesh networking protocols
- Applications for both DigiMesh and Zigbee
- And much more!
