Submission + - Gothenburg to get 270,000-node Zigbee network (theregister.co.uk)

acoster writes: "An article at The Register reports that Gothenburg will install a 270,000-node Zigbee network.

Utility company Göteborg Energi AB has selected NURI Telecom to provide Zigbee-enabled electricity meters to every home in the Swedish city of Gothenburg. The meters will then link themselves together to allow remote meter reading without infrastructure costs.

Zigbee networks are self forming — each node can also act as a router — so no setup or configuration is required, and when a new house is built the additional node just connects itself to the network and starts reporting usage.
