Mesh networking with the power of Bluetooth

The Bluetooth® mesh networking specifications define requirements to enable an interoperable many-to-many (m:m) mesh networking solution for Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) wireless technology—ideally suited for control, monitoring, and automation systems where tens, hundreds, or thousands of devices need to reliably and securely communicate with one another.

Mesh Networking Specifications

  • Mesh Profile: Defines fundamental requirements to enable an interoperable mesh networking solution for Bluetooth LE wireless technology
  • Mesh Model: Introduces models, used to define basic functionality of nodes on a mesh network
  • Mesh Device Properties: Defines device properties required for the Mesh Model specification
