Choose Your Own ZigBee Adventure

While Bob Metcalfe is claiming that ZigBee will be absolutely huge, others are still worried that it will face the standards-battle struggle of proprietary solutions masquerading as “pre-standard Zigbee.” While the article notes Metcalfe’s incorrect predictions in the past (while also noting the big ones he’s gotten right), it seems like the anti-Zigbee crowd may be jumping the gun on this one. We’re always worried about problems in the standards process, but there seems to be very little indication that there’s any real struggle going on in the Zigbee space right now, and most of the players all seem to be heading in the same direction (an amazing thing when you look at some other wireless standards these days).
