Bluetooth SIG Announces Mesh Networking CapabiliSure-Fi has developed the world’s first radio whose signals can “leap” through tall buildings of metal, brick, concrete and anything else preventing typical signals from getting through. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth signals can only go about 300 feet and are often slowed down, interrupted or blocked in congested areas. Sure-Fi signals can travel one mile through obstructions or more than 50 miles line-of-sight by using patented radio technology based on Chirp Modulation. Chirp is a component of a radio signal where the actual signal increases and decreases in frequency, creating a pulse or chirp.

The Zigbee Alliance and Thread Group have reached a critical milestone in IoT interoperability with the completion of the Dotdot 1.0 specification and announcement of the Dotdot over Thread certification program. For the first time, developers of smart products can confidently use a mature, open, and certifiable interoperability language over a low-power IP network. This will reduce product development risk and roadblocks, enable new IoT applications, and improve the consumer experience by reducing IoT fragmentation.

eHealth technologies with whole-home sensor systems present an opportunity for health insurers and consumers to reduce healthcare costs and enhance quality of life. According to Grand View Research, the global eHealth market is expected to reach $308 billion by 2022, and the transition of the healthcare industry into a digital healthcare system for management and analysis of patient health is expected to be the most vital driver of the market. The system that CZ will deploy consists of a non-intrusive set of motion and open/close sensors, and a gateway. It combines proven cloud algorithm expertise from Sensara with industry-leading Zigbee® Green Power RF solutions from Qorvo. Zigbee Green Power is optimized for ultra-long coin-cell battery life sensors (10-year replacement) and provides secure, long-range and highly reliable wireless data transmission. These features are essential to the evolution of the smart home.
