Bluetooth SIG Hosts Webinar on Bluetooth Mesh Protocol

Next week, the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) will host a webinar outlining the behind-the-scenes story of Bluetooth mesh networks. The webinar, titled "What Makes Bluetooth Mesh So Disruptive?," will be held on Nov. 8, 2017, from 9 AM to 10 AM.

Since Bluetooth mesh launched in July 2017, the technology has enabled offices, factories, homes and cities to become smart. Szymon Slupik, Bluetooth SIG's Mesh Working Group Chair from Silvair, along with Ken Kolderup, Bluetooth SIG's VP of marketing, will provide an inside look at how Bluetooth mesh was developed, the challenges faced, progress regarding the standard and how the standard will evolve.

During the webinar, Szymon will share the challenges the organization faced in creating a reliable, large-scale wireless mesh network, and why Bluetooth was chosen as the technology to address them. Szymon will address the design goals and requirements of Bluetooth mesh, as well as the critical decisions that needed to be made in order to meet them. He'll also provide a look ahead at the work already under way, how the standard will continue to evolve and the markets that will benefit most. Moreover, he'll explore why the creation of this Bluetooth standard will lead to massive disruption in building automation, wireless sensor networks, asset tracking and more.
