Bluetooth mesh enables completely new applications

  Knowledge

Mesh technology allows Bluetooth devices to be linked together to form a large network. By extending Bluetooth 4.0 with mesh, many devices can now be connected in a network and thus communicate with each over long distances in an energy-efficient and secure manner. And last, but not least, completely new application scenarios are possible by meeting industry standards in terms of security, reliability, and...
