Zigbee Alliance ratifies ZigBee Retail Services standard

Tuesday 19 November 2013 | 22:18 CET | News

The ZigBee Alliance has completed and ratified the ZigBee Retail Services standard. It is now available to ZigBee members for product development. ZigBee Retail Services helps network devices such as personal shopping assistants, intelligent shopping carts, electronic shelf labels, asset tracking tags, employee customer concierge and in-home gateways. ZigBee Retail Services allows retailers to implement multiple components of the in store environment such as shopping, asset tracking, energy management, merchandising and marketing, and pharmacy services on a single network. 

The capabilities of the ZigBee Retail Services standard are expected to enable retailers to monitor items from their source through warehousing to in store shelves. Safety and security will be enhanced in distribution by way of asset tracking and monitoring temperature and humidity of perishables, reducing spoilage and spillage. Retailers can also take advantage of standardization by combining devices from multiple suppliers into a single network which integrates with back end systems.

Development of this standard was led by retail and wireless communications companies including The Kroger, Philips, Schneider Electric, Texas Instruments, AT&T, Exegin, Kinney Consulting, Nietzsche, San Juan Software, STMicroelectronics, Telecom Italia, Ubilogix, V-Mark, and Wincor-Nixdorf. The standard was validated by following ZigBee Alliance processes with the assistance of independent test services organizations.
