The zigbee hardware is set up through software. You set it up with a PC and configure the RF Channel, PAN ID and Node ID for the hardware and then you can install it so your PLC’s can communicate in the network like shown in this image below where the controller can communicate with the remote PLC through ZB-2550-T (host) and ZB-2551-T (slave):
Are you very particular about meshing & Zigbee ? If not we can suggest you to use Nordic Platforms( FSK transiever) . Here one of Nordic Transeiver is an end point tlking to another server .Server consists of Noridc Trasiever + WIFI platform of wither Rezolt/Gainspan. we have demo code where mobile is talking to Nordic server using Wifi link . Nordic server talking to client using FSK. This solution comes out cheaper than Zigbee.
JSylvain, you could also check out the certified products section at the Zigbee alliance site, may find some useful options for you. Regards!
