SAN RAMON, Calif. -- The ZigBee(TM) Alliance, an association of companies working together to enable wirelessly networked monitoring and control products based on an open global standard, today announced 16 new member companies have joined, bringing its total membership to more than 100 companies. New member companies include: Cisco Systems, Inc.; Control4; ELDAT Gesellschaft fur Elektronik und Datentechnik mbH; Exegin Technologies Limited; France Telecom R&D LLC; Golden Power Manufacturing, Inc.; MaxStream, Inc.; Niko N.V.; Novar Controls; Orange Logic; SDSystem Company, Inc.; Shinko Electric Industries Co., Ltd.; Smarthome, Inc.; Telematics Wireless, Ltd.; TenXTechnology, Inc.; and Yamatake Corporation.

The ZigBee Alliance has more than doubled its membership in the last year. Its membership base now represents an astounding 22 countries on four continents, signifying the worldwide interest in ZigBee. All Alliance members will continue to participate in ongoing interoperability testing to ensure their products are ready to take advantage of the specification once it is completed. Most recently, the ZigBee Alliance concluded another successful interoperability testing event in Denver.

"The tremendous level of interest expressed by so many global leaders across a broad range of markets underscores the need for wirelessly networked monitoring and control products based on an open global standard," said Bob Heile, chairman of the ZigBee Alliance. "As our membership continues to expand, so does our potential to deliver innovative applications based on ZigBee. ZigBee's newest members will join in the market roll-out of the initial specification, working to deliver a global interoperable standard for the advancement of easily deployable, low-cost, low-power, wireless communication products."

Illustrating the growing momentum for the alliance, ZigBee Alliance will have a significant presence at Wireless Connectivity (WiCon) Americas, November 9-10, 2004, in Santa Clara, California. The ZigBee Alliance will host a press and analyst reception, will be on hand in Booth #314 to discuss advances in the wireless market, and will host a ZigBee Pavilion (Booth #320) to showcase ZigBee-ready products from Airbee, CompXs, Ember, Freescale Semiconductor, Millennial Net, Motorola, OKI and ZMD.

Also at WiCon, ZigBee Chairman, Bob Heile, will be joined by Jon Adams of Freescale Semiconductor, chairman of ZigBee's Interoperability Working Group, Pat Kinney of Kinney Consulting, secretary of the Alliance, and Venkat Bahl of Ember Corporation, vice chairman of the Alliance, to lead sessions on where ZigBee fits in the short-range wireless market, offer a tutorial on the IEEE 802.15.4 global standard, reflect on key market requirements for sensors and controls and preview future applications, markets and protocols.
