Beijing, China and San Ramon, CA, U.S.A. --- (METERING.COM) --- June 23, 2011 - With a view to drive greater ZigBee adoption and address ZigBee standards to meet China’s specific needs for its rapidly expanding infrastructure and growing markets, the ZigBee Alliance has opened two new offices in China.

The offices are in the Sensing China Center in Wuxi and in Zhongguancun Science Park (Z-Park) in Beijing. Jerry Huang, who has 20 years of marketing experience, has been appointed as director of ZigBee Asia Pacific, Greater China representative, to lead the Alliance’s collaboration on industry efforts and standards development from these offices.
