Difference between BlueTooth and Zigbee

Computer EngineeringComputer NetworkMCA

Bluetooth and Zigbee used to send and receive data wirelessly using radio signals.

Following are the important differences between Bluetooth and Zigbee.

Sr. No.KeyBluetoothZigbee
1FrequencyBluetooth frequency ranges between 2.4 GHz to 2.483 GHz.Zigbee frequency range is mostly 2.4 GHz.
2RF ChannelBluetooth has 79 RF Channels.Zigbee has 16 RF Channels.
3Modulation TechniqueBluetooth uses GFSK modulation technique.Zigbee uses GFSK, BPSK and QPSK modulation techniques.
4Cell NodesBluetooth has maximum 8 cell nodes.Zigbee also has more than 65000 cell nodes.
5BandwidthBluetooth needs low bandwidth.Zigbee needs low bandwidth but higher than Bluetooth.
