|Richard Harris in IoT Monday, May 14, 2018|
Wirepas and Silicon Labs has announced they have joined forces to deliver a combined hardware and software solution that gives developers the ability to implement multiprotocol connectivity for mesh networks.
Together, Wirepas and Silicon Labs are enabling their customers and partners to take advantage of the unique features of Wirepas Mesh software including network scalability, reliability and ease of implementation, along with the RF performance and multiprotocol connectivity of EFR32 SoCs. The combined solution leverages the Wirepas Mesh networking stack and Silicon Labs' Bluetooth software, Micrium OS and RAIL radio interface layer software to manage concurrent Bluetooth and Wirepas Mesh connectivity on a single EFR32 SoC.
Bluetooth is an ideal protocol for controlling lighting systems and indoor navigation through easy-to-use smartphone apps to enhance user satisfaction. Using smartphones, it also enables simple device provisioning without requiring custom hardware, thereby easing the installation and commissioning process. Wirepas Mesh software serves as the backbone for large-scale IoT networks while Bluetooth provides a ubiquitous, point-to-point user interface. The protocol combination also meets the growing demand in the retail, commercial and hospitality markets for connected lighting solutions.
“Together, Wirepas Mesh and Silicon Labs’ EFR32 platform work together to solve a pressing problem for industrial-grade IoT: how to wirelessly connect billions of devices with diverse and evolving network requirements,” said Teppo Hemiä, CEO of Wirepas. “The combination of a high-performance mesh network and Bluetooth technology provides a powerful approach to meeting the multiprotocol connectivity needs of our partners and customers.”
“The combined Wirepas and Silicon Labs multiprotocol solution frees application developers from the complexities of developing network stacks and scheduling multiple wireless protocols,” said Dennis Natale, Vice President and General Manager of IoT products at Silicon Labs. “Our mutual customers can now focus on creating unique value-added mesh networking applications in a wide range of IoT segments.”
Are you paying more taxes than you have to as a developer or freelancer? The IRS is certainly not going to tell you about a deduction you failed to take, and your accountant is not likely to take the time to ask you about every deduction you’re entitled to. As former IRS Commissioner Mark Everson admitted, “If you don’t claim it, you don’t get it.
