Zigbee is a recent wireless standard based on IEEE 802.15.4 for personal area networking. Recently, it has created a lot of interest among the research community for Wireless Sensor Network (WSN). Zigbee is an open specification and designed to achieve very low power consumption. Specifically, it has been built up on the top of the Physical layer& MAC layer and defines the Network and Application layer which has been normalized in IEEE 802.15.4.In this paper, attempt has been made to measure the performance parameters of Zigbee routing protocol such as AODV and DSR using Net Sim simulator. The performance parameters such as End to End delay, Throughput,& Packet Delivery Ratio (PDR) have been analyzed. Even though many studies related to AODV & DSR have been presented in the current literature, it has not been analyzed through Net Sim simulator. So, we made an attempt to investigate the performance of AODV & DSR routing protocols and compare it for personal area network (PAN) using Net Sim Simulator as it is a Professional Simulator in the area of computer networks.
