日期:2015-05-18   类型:Industry information

ZigBee Alliance and Thread Group issued a joint statement, announcing that ZigBee Cluster Library (ZCL) will be implemented on the Thread network architecture. ZCL is designed to standardize the device application layer functions of various applications in smart home and other markets. Thread is designed to support different application layer protocols. The cooperation between the two will help create a complete home network product solution. Chris Boross, President and Technical Product Marketing Manager of ThreadGroup, said, "ZigBee and Thread will take a big step forward after reaching a consensus on cooperation, thus reducing the fragmentation of the industry."


ZigBee is a wireless communication standard technology designed for smart home networking applications. It adopts the IEEE 802.15.4 standard operating in the 2.4GHz frequency band. It has reliable, low-power connection capabilities, can be integrated into various electronic products, and can be configured to achieve almost any short-range wireless functions. ZigBee Alliance members can share expertise and technical reserves with each other, realize greater value through standardization, and create a comfortable and convenient home networking experience for users.


Thread technology is a rising star in the smart home wireless communication technology in recent years. It also follows the 802.15.4 standard. The network architecture takes IPv6 as the development core, which can provide users with a safe and open network connection environment. That is, it can exchange and backup data through the Internet and any device. In the existing short-range wireless communication technology, it provides a reliable Low power and self-healing connection options.


Mark, CEO of Ourebo, a member of the board of directors of ZigBee Alliance in China, believes that ZigBee technology has inherent advantages in the smart home industry. With the massive popularization of the nest thermostat, its supported Thread technology has rapidly attracted dozens of well-known manufacturers to join. Now the combination of ZigBee and Thread standards will help their respective members further improve their service and product competitiveness. For the industry, the combination of the two will greatly promote the progress of the unification of industry standards, and change the phenomenon of divergence of standards in smart families; It is a new inspiration for those engaged in the research and development of smart home products, and their ideas will be more focused. The cooperation between ZigBee and Thread is a milestone in the development of the smart home industry, which indicates that there will be exact solutions to the difficult networking problems users are worried about, and the scenario experience of smart home systems will be closer and closer to us.
