The ZigBee protocol is a wireless network protocol developed specifically for low data rate sensor and control networks. Wireless applications that may benefit from ZigBee include, but are not limited to, industrial controls, home and building automation, PC peripherals, medical sensor applications and security networks.

The latest protocol specifications ratified by the ZigBee Alliance is collectively referred to as ZigBee-2007. ZigBee-2007 defines two distinct levels of functionality or feature sets. The standard set is called ZigBee, and the more advanced feature set is named ZigBee PRO.

When compared against ZigBee, the ZigBee PRO feature set offers many enhanced networking capabilities, and, under certain conditions, is backwards compatible with ZigBee.

The purpose of this application note is to provide a description of the ZigBee PRO features set as implemented by the Microchip ZigBee PRO stack.
