Zigbee Sub-GHz

ZBOSS Sub-GHz is our full ZBOSS stack, adapted to use Sub-GHz radio bands in North America (900 MHz) and the European Union (MHz). ZBOSS Sub-GHz delivers higher signal strength and extended ranges to cover more locations around a home or building, enabling new uses for residential, commercial, and industrial applications. Compared to 2.4GHz protocols, Sub-GHz radio bands may be optimal for low-data rate applications, like smart metering and home automation, due to its longer range and lower power consumption. DSR contributed to the development of Zigbee Sub-GHz through our participation in the Connectivity Standards Alliance.

Common uses

Smart Buildings



Remote Key Entry (Doors and Automotive)

Garage Door



ZBOSS Sub-GHz bands deliver stronger signals than 2.4 GHz bands leading to improved range, beneficial for large buildings and smart city solutions.

Low Power

Lower frequency radio bands require less power than a standard 2.4 GHz band. This reduced power consumption leads to longer battery life for ZBOSS Sub-GHz devices.


Sub-GHz bands' long range and lower power consumption lead to cheaper costs for energy and maintenance, along with reduced hardware spending.

Reduced Interference

Heavy signal traffic on 2.4 GHz bands cause transmission interference. Sub-GHz bands are less likely to interfere with each other due to reduced data transfer.

Global Compliance

Sub-GHz radio bands are utilized in markets across the world. ZBOSS Sub-GHz is Zigbee certified and compliant across countries and ecosystems.


Sub-GHz devices can deliver substantially improved range while passing through walls and bending around obstacles more efficiently.

With a mesh network, you can extend the range by simply adding more nodes to the network.

Running at a lower frequency band provides longer range while requiring less power. This gives the Sub-GHz network an extended battery life.

Open, non-proprietary solutions, such as the Alliance’s Zigbee Sub-GHz solution, offer lower cost with ecosystem balance, interoperability and flexibility in hardware use.
