The Zigbee™ alliance seeks to develop an open standard for reliable, cost-effective, secure wireless interconnectivity of monitoring and control products. The ZigBee™ technology is better suited for control applications, which do not require high data rates, but must have low power, low costs and ease of use. In this paper we investigate the applicability of Zigbee™ to Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems an investigate issues relating to: Networking, Security, Reliability and Quality of Service.
Presented at SCADA and related technologies for irrigation district modernization: a USCID water management conference on October 26-29, 2005 in Vancouver, Washington.
