ITU-T G.9959 standard is close to Z-Wave tech

Sigma Designs has confirmed that the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has developed a new sub 1GHz narrow band wireless standard. The ITU-T G.9959 standard is largely based on the Z-Wave technology and defines backwards compatibility to the Z-Wave standard.

"This new ITU standard is a step forward for Sigma and our Z-Wave technology," stated Gabi Hilevitz, vice president and general manager home connectivity group at Sigma Designs. "Incorporation of the Z-Wave MAC and PHY layers into G.9959 assures the continued growth and interoperability of the Z-Wave standard and will further accelerate its use world-wide. Recognition by an International Standards Organization such as the ITU is an important milestone in any technologies lifecycle."

Sigma Designs' Z-Wave is the only technology to bring affordable, reliable and easy-touse wireless control to every aspect of daily life including remote home monitoring and management, security, home control, entertainment control, healthcare and smart energy management. Z-Wave is an award-winning, proven and interoperable wireless mesh networking technology that allows a wide array of devices in and around the home to communicate including lighting, appliances, HVAC, consumer electronics devices, AV equipment and security systems.
