If this is a standard, why is the PHY/MAC is provided only by Sigma Designs and Mitsumi? How can others provide these components to the customers using Z-Wave as a standard in their product?

Is this a standard which competes against ZigBee? Which will win? Who has the most products in the market? ZigBee in the USA and Z-wave in Europe? Will this only be a matter or marketing battle or an actual technical advantage ? Or perhaps EMC regulations will determine which technology will be used in which geographical area. I think Europe has a great tradition in wireless development and US is great at marketing. I hope the one with the best technological advantage wins.
