This European Standard gives the standardization framework of communication systems applicable to the exchange of data from metering devices to other devices within a mesh network.
This European Standard specifies how to interpret prEN 16836-2:2015 and prEN 16836-3:2015 which give a list of references to the ZigBee documents. This series is applicable to communications systems that involve messages and networking between a meter or multiple meters and other devices in a mesh network, such as in home displays (IHDs) and communications hubs. This European Standard allows routing between devices and also allows channel agility to avoid contention with other networks of the same type, or indeed networks of other types operating in the same frequency bands.
This European Standard is designed to support low power communications for devices such as gas and water meters which can make data from such devices available on the mesh network at any time through a proxy capability within a permanently powered device.
