In particular, IEEE 802.15.4  has become a representative standard for low-rate wireless personal area network (LR-WPAN
An effective and rapid address assignment algorithm for LR-WPAN
mesh networks was presented in , which compresses the address assignment frame and changes the condition of address allocation in order to reduce control overhead and speed address assigning.

systems", IEICE Electronics Express, 2008, 5(14), 490-496, doi: 10.1587/elex.5.490.
The ZigBee network is a Low-Rate WPAN (LR-WPAN
) that is used for short-range, low power, and low-cost data communication.
Technology areas covered in the dictionary include: ad hoc networks; broadband wireless access (BWA); coexistence; integrity/confidentiality; interference; low-rate wireless personal area networks (LR-WPAN
); media independent handover; mobile broadband wireless access; mobility; quality of service (QoS); RF/microwave exposure assessment; SAR measurements; vehicular mobility; wireless access; wireless communications; wireless local area networks (WLANs); wireless metropolitan area networks (WMANs); wireless networks security; wireless personal area networks (WPANs); and wireless regional area networks (WRANs).
The MAC implementation available in the initial lr-wpan
model supports the nonbeacon, mesh mode with all devices in the default idle listen state of the radio transceiver.
The MAC layer has some characteristics for LR-WPAN
. First, two different devices, i.e., Full Function Device (FFD) and Reduce Function Device (RFD) are supported.
In the 2.4 GHz industrial, scientific and medical (ISM) band, LR-WPAN
devices are intended to operate with other IEEE 802 wireless devices such as IEEE 802.11b (WLAN) and IEEE 802.15.1 (Bluetooth).
This compact but comprehensive analysis demystifies the new standards for low data rate personal area networks (LR-WPANs
), including related standards on Bluetooth.
IEEE 802.15.4, "Wireless Medium Access Control (MAC) and Physical Layer (PHY) Specifications for Low Rate Personal Area Networks (LR-WPANs
)," addresses fixed, portable and moving devices that operate at data rates of 10 to 50 kbps.
IEEE 802.15.4, "Wireless Medium Access Control (MAC) and Physical Layer (PHY) Specifications for Low Rate Wireless Personal Area Networks (LR-WPANs
)," addresses fixed, portable and moving devices that operate at data rates of 10 to 250 kbps.
