9. Could Bluetooth Conquer the World?
Bluetooth is already so ubiquitous. However, to make it even more present in our lives, the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) created a new protocol, Bluetooth mesh, that enables Bluetooth LE controllers to create a mesh network of up to 32,000 devices. The potential of such a technology is tremendous, from smart homes and buildings to industrial applications, which is why our STSW-BNRG-Mesh software pack became such a hot topic this year. It allows developers to create Bluetooth mesh application with any of our existing BlueNRG-1, BlueNRG-2, SPBTLE-1, and BlueNRG-MS devices, thus bringing this new protocol to a plethora of products already on the market.
