Mesh Networking in Bluetooth 5 enables this ubiquitous protocol to leapfrog over all other wireless technologies in terms of range, functionality, and reliability.
Industrial IoT needs a robust wireless technology that accommodates large numbers of sensors exchanging significant amounts of data, offers secure and reliable connectivity, capable of operating in a crowded wireless environment.
Bluetooth 5’s adoption of a Mesh Topology means the size of the network is no longer determined by the distance from the hub; every device can become a hub, communicating directly or indirectly with other devices.
With a four-fold increase in range and support for an unlimited number of devices, Bluetooth 5 Mesh networks are theoretically boundless! It means anything can be connected to a secure, extensible and robust network; the Industrial Internet of Things.
With greater broadcast message capabilities and longer range, Bluetooth 5 enables a new generation of beacons. Location based information, indoor geolocation, and warehouse asset management are just some of the solutions beacons can offer. No other wireless protocol supports a beaconing technology like Bluetooth 5.
Bluetooth 5 brings improvement to its low-energy capabilities, enabling years of operation from a single coin cell battery. With its backward compatibility even existing devices operating in the IoT and IIoT could benefit from Bluetooth 5.
