The Bluetooth SIG today added support for mesh networking to its core Bluetooth specification. The move targets the internet-of-things, smart homes, and business applications where simple connections between many devices are needed. According to the Bluetooth SIG, the mesh networking feature supports self-healing networks, supports thousands of individual nodes, and provides industrial-grade security. The mesh networking spec relies on Bluetooth Low Energy within Bluetooth 4.0 to create scalable connections that can be made between products from different vendors around the world. This gives Bluetooth mesh networking an advantage over some in-home and IoT solutions that require specific hardware components in order to successfully interact with one another. The specification and associated developer tools are available to download from the Bluetooth SIG web site.
