ZigBee 802.15.4 networks have three functional network nodes: the PAN coordinator, the Full Function Devices (FFD) are ZigBee routers, and the Reduced Function Devices (RFD) are ZigBee end devices.

Network configurations of ZigBee networks: Star, cluster tree topology and mesh network

FFD nodes are intermediate nodes that can perform routing functionality and establish ad hoc networks.

Full Function Devices support all topologies, communicate with PAN coordinators and other FFD stations as well as with Reduced Function Devices. They support the complete protocol set and can take over the functions of the PAN coordinator in small networks without a PAN coordinator.
