DSR's ZBOSS Open Initiative reaps benefits for its' member companies

October 6th, 2022

Almost 3 years ago, DSR announced the launch of the ZBOSS Open Initiative, a first of its kind community of companies working on a common Zigbee® PRO software platform, ZBOSS, with a goal to overcome, together, the challenges around interoperability, security, testing, and optimization of Zigbee®-enabled products and solutions. ZOI’s members include silicon chip vendors, consumer product companies and system integrators. To learn more about ZOI, visit www.dsr-zoi.com


One of the main challenges currently facing the IoT market is to achieve interoperability across the vast ecosystem of smart devices and manufacturers. The key solution to this problem is a shared software platform, utilized and maintained by chipset vendors and consumer product companies, in a collaborative environment. ZOI provides the best on the market Zigbee stack to its members and sharing the development efforts between multiple companies creates a more robust product that benefits all participants and their customers, along with users who utilize the products built on ZOI. Members can prioritize new features and provide the code for the implementation. These features are implemented swiftly by making pull requests, thus benefiting their customers.

Multiple silicon vendors are already supporting this initiative, and it continues to expand. It utilizes modern ways of working with Git, Confluence, and other tools to create a current code base that gives developers a huge benefit as they can fix things and collaborate faster, significantly reducing the product development lifecycle. Join ZOI to gain access to ZBOSS r23 and Zigbee Direct and greatly reduce issues of interoperability, simplify development for manufacturers, and lower your R&D cost.


ZBOSS is a hardware agnostic, cross-platform, high-performance Zigbee® software protocol stack developed by DSR Corporation. DSR Corporation is an original pioneer of the IoT market, with a proven track record and broad expertise in the wireless industry and beyond. DSR’s Zigbee portfolio stretches back to 2009 and has resulted in substantial amount of Zigbee and wireless-related problem-solving experience around the globe.

ZBOSS features cross-platform support, multi-tasking, fixed memory footprint, OS-less configuration, and an easy-to-use API. It is an official Zigbee® stack for Nordic Semiconductor and ON Semiconductor, and also supports multiple SoCs, MCUs, and transceivers from Texas Instruments, Qorvo, ARM, Telink, UBEC, Microchip, and other chip vendors. Moreover, multiple Zigbee® 3.0 certified products are powered by ZBOSS. Over 200 smart devices from more than 40 vendors have been tested, successfully, for interoperability with ZBOSS.
