Purpose

The standard provides for ultra low complexity, ultra low cost, ultra low power consumption, and low data rate wireless connectivity among inexpensive devices, especially targeting the communications requirements of what in now commonly referred to as the Internet of Things. In addition, some of the alternate PHYs provide precision ranging capability that is accurate to one meter. Multiple PHYs are defined to support a variety of frequency bands.  

Scope

This standard defines the physical layer (PHY) and medium access control (MAC) sublayer specifications for low-data-rate wireless connectivity with fixed, portable, and moving devices with no battery or very limited battery consumption requirements. In addition, the standard provides modes that allow for precision ranging. PHYs are defined for devices operating in various license-exempt and other bands in a variety of geographic regions.  

Need

There are a number errors, inconsistencies, and ambiguities in need of correction. Additionally there will be six completed amendments during the course of the revision that should be rolled up. These are 802.15.4n, 802.15.4q, 802.15.4s, 802.15.4t, 802.15.4u, and 802.15.4v.
