Original Abstract

The ZigBee standard is out for more than one year and real-world applications already exist. The deployment of applications based on ZigBee depends heavily on the performance of the radio. It is not easy to determine the parameters for a certain location and there is not much information or guidelines for this yet. As very efficient way seems a simple on site testing, but for this it is important to know what to test. Here we describe experience gained during testing the ZigBee radio properties in an indoor environment. The paper brings a description of a simple test procedure for ZigBee devices and shows results for tests conducted on the office floor of the faculty building.

Czech abstract

Sandard ZigBee je už několika let dostupný, a existují již praktické aplikace. Použití je ve značné míře závislé na vlastnostech rádia. Není snadné určit parametry dané lokace a zatím ani neexistuje moc informací a návodů k tomu. Jako nejjednodušší cesta se jeví testování. Je k tomu ale potřeba vědet, co testovat. V tomto článku jsou popsáni zkušenosti získané během testování vlastností rádia ZigBee ve vnitřním prostředí. Článek popisuje jednoduchou testovací proceduru pro zařízení se ZigBee a výsledky testu provedených na fakultě.
