The ZigBee Alliance reports that it has ratified the first ZigBee wireless specification (IEEE 802.11g), which it says will help users develop and deploy powerful, efficient, cost-effective, low data-rate monitoring, control, and sensing networks. This on-time delivery of the specification concludes two years of worldwide development and interoperability testing by more than 100 member companies in the ZigBee Alliance.

For members that have already announced ZigBee-ready technologies, the alliance's ratification of the specification enables them to quickly enhance their products and begin testing to obtain ZigBee-compliant certification. All alliance members have complete and exclusive access to the final specification, and will continue to participate in ongoing interoperability testing to verify that their products are ZigBee-compliant.

The alliance plans to continue to validate the specification through expanded interoperability and scalability tests and future enhancements. The alliance will actively promote use of ZigBee-enabled technology in real-world applications to foster new, creative applications for the market, and facilitate broader applications of the ZigBee standard worldwide.
