The Internet-of-Things (IoT) concept predicts a future of interconnected formation using one or more radio automation due to the high proliferation of sensors. Multiradio mesh deployments made possible by a network of inexpensive IoT platforms, like ASUS Tinker Board S, Banana Pi M64, Raspberry Pis (RPis), etc., seem to be an ordinal fit for such deployments' wireless backbones because many of these platforms come with built-in support for various wireless technologies. To fit the capabilities of low power multiradio solutions, especially when making best effort broadcasts, the cutting-edge routing techniques must be reconsidered. This is because most currently available routing systems prioritise channel diversity while routing, omitting any potential costs related to protocol conversions. Therefore, we covered the effect of protocol conversion in IoT in this study. The three wireless technologies Wi-Fi, Zigbee, and Bluetooth have been examined. For rapid, short-distance communication, Bluetooth technology excels. Zigbee, on the other hand, offers somewhat faster, lower-power communication across longer distances. Therefore, depending on the situation, IOT devices could use Bluetooth or Zigbee. Relay agents that offer protocol conversion can connect to Bluetooth and Zigbee IOT devices using Wi-Fi technology, which operates on IP.
