  • 802.15.1(Standardization Task Group)
  • 802.15.2 (Recommended practice)
  • 802.15.3 (High Rate WPAN)
    • High-rate (>20 Mbit/s) WPANs
    • IEEE 802.15.3a is a standard for UWB devices
    • IEEE 802.15.3c is a standard for gigabit wireless (> 2 Gbit/s) in the 60 GHz band
  • 802.15.4 (Low Rate WPAN)
    • Low-rate WPANs (up to 200 kbit/s)
    • Standardization of ZigBee
