An Evolution of PioneeringCSRmesh, Qualcomm Bluetooth mesh, will be Available on Select Connectivity System-on-Chips。
“We’ve been a champion of mesh for Bluetooth wireless technology for several years now and have worked closely with the Bluetooth SIG to help bring about the standardization of Bluetooth mesh,” said Joseph Bousaba, vice president, product management, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “Our years of proven experience and commercial success with CSRmesh offer our customers the opportunity to rapidly develop differentiating product features and performance enhancements, with efficient low power consumption. The arrival of the Bluetooth SIG’s mesh technology is a significant step towards industry standardization and adoption and will help bring interoperability to Bluetooth devices and new use cases like lighting, indoor positioning and asset tracking for the Internet of Things.”
Qualcomm Bluetooth mesh is designed to enable customers to develop standards-based solutions that are fully compatible with Bluetooth SIG mesh networking specifications, enabling devices to communicate with each other in a mesh network. Qualcomm Bluetooth mesh supports a wide variety of control and automation applications, including smart home, smart lighting, smart appliances, retail advertising, commercial and many industrial opportunities. Bluetooth mesh solutions are expected to offer full interoperability, enabling organizations who have deployed Bluetooth products to connect them all using a security-rich, standard-based mesh network.
QCA4020 is atri-mode connectivity SoC integratingBluetooth Low Energy 5, Dual-band Wi-Fi®, and 802.15.4-based technologies, includingZigBee® and Thread, while QCA4024 integrates Bluetooth Low Energy 5 and 802.15.4. Both solutions support hardware-based security features in a low power, cost-optimized integrated solution and help address IoT fragmentation, making for flexible product development for OEMs, and support for various devices from different manufacturers to talk to each other across different wireless standards, protocols and communication frameworks, while connecting to a system network and cloud and application services.
