Mesh networking is blue

Over the past two decades, Bluetooth® technology has revolutionized the IoT, adding new capabilities that have enabled innovation and established new markets. Now Bluetooth mesh continues that trend by playing a pivotal role in the development of emerging markets such as Smart Building, Smart Industry, Smart Cities, and Smart Home.

Mesh is a network topology used for establishing many-to-many (m:m) device communications. The mesh topology available on Bluetooth LE enables the creation of large-scale device networks and is ideally suited for control, monitoring, and automation systems where tens, hundreds, or thousands of devices need to reliably and securely communicate with one another.

Since its release in July 2017, Bluetooth mesh has become the clear choice for large-scale device networks. Doubling month-over-month, products with mesh networking capability have been qualified from leading silicon, stack, component, and end-product vendors.
