One Year Since the Release of Bluetooth Mesh

What is Mesh?

Bluetooth® mesh networking enables many-to-many (m:m) device communications and is optimized for creating large-scale device networks. Designed to meet the scalability, reliability, and security requirements of commercial and industrial environments, Bluetooth mesh is powering smart building and smart industry implementations where tens, hundreds, or thousands of devices need to communicate with one another effectively. From factories to hospitals, airports, retail stores, and the home, Bluetooth mesh supports building services that bring real value to owners, operators, and occupants.

Since the release of the mesh specifications in July 2017, Bluetooth mesh has played a pivotal role in the development of emerging markets, such as smart buildings, smart industry, smart cities, and smart home. Already, more than 105 products with mesh networking capability have been qualified from leading silicon, stack, component, and end-product vendors.
