The ZigBee(TM) Alliance, whose companies develop wireless solutions for home, commercial and industrial applications, added Huawei Technologies, Schneider Electric and STMicroelectronics, to Promoter-level membership, giving each a seat on the Alliance board. Other such members include BM Group, Ember Corporation, Freescale Semiconductor, Honeywell, Mitsubishi Electric, Motorola, Philips, Samsung, Siemens, and Texas Instruments.

"The ZigBee Alliance continues its growth largely because of its universal standards approach, low cost of entry and industry leading price points," said Bob Heile, chairman of the ZigBee Alliance.

"Technologies such as ZigBee will provide the foundation for a networked home that goes beyond PCs and home entertainment to appliances, lighting, heating and cooling, entryways, and other elements of the home," said Jonathan Gaw, research manager for the Consumer Markets: Home Networking program of global IT market research firm IDC. "Building a comprehensive ecosystem of chipset manufacturers, application developers, and device manufacturers is key to nurturing the market for low power, wirelessly networked monitor and control systems."

Huawei Technologies was a Participant-level member and opted to increase its position within the Alliance. Huawei is a leading company in the migration to fixed mobile convergence technology innovation.

Schneider Electric was a Participant-level member and is a major player in building automation and builds ZigBee technology into its building control and ultraterminal products.

STMicroelectronics was previously a Participant-level member and produces semiconductors that range from extremely complex system-on-chips to simple diodes.
