Bluetooth Mesh Networking Expected to Revolutionize HomeKit and More

Bluetooth Mesh Networking Expected to Revolutionize Home Kit and More Bluetooth LE adds mesh networking to improve home/building automation, lighting & other IoT devices

The new support on Qualcomm Bluetooth mesh allows SIG networking to act compatibly with all other devices in a mesh network. The promise here, according to the Bluetooth SIG, is that tens, hundreds, or thousands of devices will be able to communicate with one another to automate systems that range from a standard smart home to a machine-filled factory.

Ratified and launched by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG), the combination of Bluetooth Mesh and Toshiba's application software enable the BLE products to simultaneously increase communication range, reliability and obstacle penetration capability while also increasing battery life.

The mesh network spec... allows devices to work together to extend range by re-transmitting the signals they receive.

The technology can be used for sensor networks, IoT devices, building automation and more and it will be supported by Bluetooth LE and Bluetooth 4.0 and above.

"Multi-vendor interoperability is a major factor in determining how fast markets develop", said Russ Sharer, VP Global Marketing and Business Development, Fulham. By selecting Bluetooth technology, developers can deliver richer solutions with a faster time to market.

"Within the automation market, there is a growing focus on connected lighting and the role it can play as a platform for providing automation services throughout a facility", commented Szymon Slupik, president and CTO of Silvair and chairman of the mesh working group within the Bluetooth SIG. Combined with the impending release of the 5G network, Bluetooth mesh could provide the bump needed to convince consumers that the time is right to start buying into the smart home market. "These value-added capabilities are part of why we believe Bluetooth is an ideal technology for enabling a mesh network".

Mesh networking has been a great addition to the WiFi space, but it'll prove to be an absolute game changer for Bluetooth.

The introduction of Bluetooth mesh networking comes at a time of pivotal industry growth, with ABI Research expecting 48 billion internet-enabled devices to be installed by 2021, of which almost one-third will include Bluetooth. Point-to-point connections have always been Bluetooth's strength. With robust systems that enable dozens of devices to talk to one another, Bluetooth SIG discovered that range limitations were almost nonexistent.
