Mindtree Unveils Software Stacks For Cloud And Mesh Connectivity Over Bluetooth Smart
Solution simplifies cloud connectivity for “Internet of Things (IoT)” devices
Bangalore (India) and Warren (NJ) – March 29, 2016– Mindtree, a leading digital transformation and technology services company, today announced the launch of its comprehensive IPv6 Stack and Smart Mesh Suite for Bluetooth Smart. The IPv6 Stack and Smart Mesh Suite will enable original equipment manufacturers (OEM) and semiconductor companies to add seamless cloud connectivity to their IoT products.
The combination of IPv6 and Smart Mesh technology not only transmits data collected from remote sensor nodes to cloud analytics platforms, but also enables control of end devices over the internet. IPv6 enables internet access to millions of individual Bluetooth Smart devices, providing the essential IP infrastructure for applications such as smart homes, wearables, and connected medical devices. The Smart Mesh technology helps overcome range limitations in Bluetooth Smart, an important consideration for industrial and home automation.
The IPv6 Stack and Smart Mesh Suite are designed to support either Mindtree or 3rd-party Bluetooth Stacks v4.1 and beyond. These products are optimized for minimizing memory footprint and tested for interoperability. The IPv6 Stack is a complete and validated solution, including support for the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) 6LoBTLE specifications. The Smart Mesh Suite includes the Smart Mesh profile, which is compliant with the latest specifications from the Bluetooth Special Interest Group. Application level security is achieved through 128-bit AES-CCM and AES-CMAC encryption.
“Integration of Intellectual Property from various providers can be risky and time consuming. With the addition of the IPv6 Stack and Smart Mesh Suite to our Bluetooth portfolio, our clients can source all the digital portions of their Bluetooth Smart connectivity solution from Mindtree, increasing product stability and reducing integration timelines,” said Jayanth Krishna, Head of Short-range Wireless Business at Mindtree
Mindtree has been a leading provider of Bluetooth Intellectual Property solutions for 15 years. It was the first to qualify v4.2 Bluetooth Smart and offers a clear roadmap for the adoption of v5.0 Bluetooth specification. The IP portfolio includes certified, customizable, ultra-low power and footprint Silicon IP for Bluetooth® Smart 4.1 and 4.2, and ultra-compact, complete certified protocol Stack and Profiles software for Bluetooth® Smart 4.1 and 4.2. Mindtree also offers a feature-rich and compact Bluetooth® Smart Ready 4.1 and 4.2 and Bluetooth® Classic protocol Stack and Profiles.
