Bluetooth Smart Mesh SW – Features

Features

    • Flooding Mesh Network: Uses broadcast channels to transmit messages so that other nodes can receive messages and relay these messages by re-transmitting them, thus extending the range of the original message
    • Bearer Layer: Advertising (ADV) Bearer (Advertising data type to encapsulate the mesh packet) & GATT Bearer (Attribute protocol used to encapsulate the mesh packet)
    • Provisioning Bearer (PB): Provisioning of nodes on the BLE-Mesh through PB-ADV, PB-Mesh and PB-GATT
    • Platform and Operating Systems (OS) Agnostic and is designed for Easy Portability
    • No limitation on number of Mesh Nodes
    • Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) blocks supports are CMAC (IETF RFC 4493) and CCM (IETF RFC 3610), as per BT-SIG specification requirements

Benefits

    • Reduced Technical Risk
    • Fully testing in UnPlugFests
    • BT-SIG certification
    • Complete implementation in ANSI C to enable easy portability across various micro controllers
    • Platform and Operating Systems (OS) Agnostic and is designed for Easy Portability
    • Proven portability across 3rd party Bluetooth Stack
    • Cost Optimization
    • Memory Footprint of 48-64 KB Flash
    • Low MIPS requirement

Deliverables

    • Smart Mesh IP implemented in ANSI C consisting of:
