Ushering in a New Era of Internet Connectivity with Thread Networking Protocol

Introduction

Thread is the future of wireless mesh networking, and it is poised to become a pivotal technology for connecting “things” to the Internet. “Things” can be loosely defined as power-sensitive, space-constrained devices that incorporate microcontrollers (MCUs), sensors, RF technology and software. Wireless connectivity bridges these devices to the Internet, which then can be remotely controlled and automated. Multiple wireless technologies exist in the market that support such interconnectivity, but Thread uniquely serves the specific needs of the Connected Home. It fills a critical technology gap in the Internet of Things (IoT) by providing a low-power, secure and scalable IP-based wireless mesh networking protocol based on proven standards.
