Mesh network topologies are ideal for many IoT systems due to their ability to reduce system power consumption, extend communication range, increase scalability, improve network reliability, and optimize communication responsiveness. A number of mesh networking protocols are commercially available today including Bluetooth Mesh, Thread, and zigbee. There are many applications where mesh networks can provide benefits to the overall system, business, and consumer. Notable applications that can utilize mesh networking include asset tracking, beaconing, home & building automation, lighting, and smart metering.
In this webinar, we compare different mesh networking protocols and discuss the criteria you should consider when selecting the right approach for your design, including the role of solution ecosystems and wireless security.
