ZIGBEE EXPLAINED

WBAMnet WBAMnet

WIRELESS BUILDING AUTOMATION FOR ALL COMMERCIAL BUILDING TYPES
  • Provides wireless connectivity between WBAMnet equipment controllers, lighting controllers, sensors and other devices within commercial buildings.
  • Wireless connectivity across multiple network levels.
  • Brings together ZigBee and the Building Asset Management (WBAMnet) protocol, the standard for wireless building automation communication.
  • WBAMnet Tunnelling capability.
ADVANCED SECURITY
  • Secures Building Automation networks by the use of AES 128 encryption, keys, and device authentication.
  • Encryption secures access to critical building management information from eavesdropping.
BUILT FOR LARGE-SCALE COMMERCIAL DEPLOYMENTS
  • Supports thousands of devices in a single network.
  • Easily connect to the Internet or other networks using gateways.
  • New services can be introduced in a controlled manner to scale as requirements grow.
ZIGBEE TECHNOLOGY
  • Global operation in the 2.4GHz frequency band according to IEEE 802.15.4
  • Reliable, robust, low-power ZigBee PRO networking.
  • Large ecosystem of manufacturers.
  • Wireless range up to 70m indoors and 400m outdoors with full control of transmitted output power. “Mesh” technology ensures the distance never to be more than 10m.
  • Networking flexibility to cover entire building.
  • Open and freely available specification based on international standards.
  • Highly scalable solutions for thousands of devices.
RELIABLE
  • No single point of failure.
  • Uses “mesh” technology that provides redundant paths of communication.
  • No wire exists that can be cut and potentially cause a loss of a significant portion of the network.
