Abstract: The purpose of this study is to measure the distance in the line of sight environment and to see the data resulted from zigbee transmission by using star, mesh and tree topologies by using delay, throughput and packet loss parameters. The results showed that star topology had the average value which tended to be stable on the measurement of throughput and packet loss because there was no router nodes in star topology so that the accuracy of data delivery was better and it had the smallest delay value because the number of nodes was less than in mesh and tree topology, while the mesh and tree topologies had a poor average value on throughput and packet loss measurements, since the mesh and tree topologies had to go through many processes in which they had to pass through the router node to transmit the data to the coordinator node. However, the mesh and tree topologies had an advantage in which the data delivery could go through more distances than the star topology and they could add more nodes.
