Zigbee is the latest wireless standard based on IEEE 802.15.4 for personal area networking. Recently, it has made a lot of interest among the research community for Wireless Sensor Network (WSN). Zigbee is an open specification and designed to achieve very less power consumption. Specifically, it has been built up on the top of the Physical layer, MAC layer, explanation of Network and Application layer which has been normalized in IEEE 802.15.4. In this paper, effort has been made to measure the performance of Zigbee network by taking routing protocol such as DSR, AODV, OLSR and ZRP using NetSim Simulator. The performance parameters such as Throughput (Mbps), Delay (Microseconds), Packets Transmitted and Packets Transmitted have been analysed. We made an effort to investigate the performance of DSR, AODV, OLSR and ZRP routing protocols and compare it for personal area network (PAN) using NetSim Simulator.
