Binnenkort beschikbaar: Bluetooth Mesh gateway

Bluetooth, the new IoT mesh standard

Tot voor kort waren er veel proprietaire mesh oplossingen. Door hun gesloten karakter werken deze niet of nauwelijks samen met elkaar. De Bluetooth Special Interest Group (Bluetooth SIG) heeft daarom de Bluetooth® Mesh standaard ontwikkelt. Deze standaard zal ervoor zorgen dat Bluetooth® Mesh toestellen van verschillende fabrikanten met elkaar zullen kunnen communiceren.

DPTechnics ontwikkelt 1 van de eerste Bluetooth® 5 Mesh gateways. Deze gateway zal de meeste standaard Mesh modellen implementeren en zal toestellen provisioneren en aan het internet koppelen. Samen met het krachtige BlueCherry® IoT platform zal deze gateway tal van mogelijkheden creeren. Wij verwachten deze ontwikkeling begin 2019 af te ronden, contacteer ons voor meer informatie.

Bluetooth 5 Mesh

The standard Bluetooth Mesh ensures the gateway will operate with tons of divices from different vendors. Not limited to a small number of nodes, but connect more than 32768 nodes into a single mesh network. No more popcorn effect when transmitting commands, but fast communication.

Security, real security

The Bluetooth Mesh incorporates bank grade security through hardware 128-bits AES encryption on every single node in the mesh. Many proprietary solutions still use unencrypted traffic to send data and are thus inherently insecure. On top of the Bluetooth Mesh security the gateway also uses secure internet protocols such as SSH and SSL to make a connection to external services.

Custom applications

The Bluetooth Mesh gateway runs all the DPTechnics libraries and BlueCherry services. This means it now becomes easy to implement Bluetooth Mesh compliant solutions and have a short time to market. We will use this Bluetooth Mesh gateway in our 1-2-3 product design service, so don't hesitate to contact us and start your smart mesh project.

Ultra low power and long range

In the past Bluetooth was associated with short range but Bluetooth 5 changes al this. By using more sensitive RF frontends the range now defaults to over 100 meters for Bluetooth 5 low energy. If you combine this with mesh technology, the range becomes virtually infinite.
