On Monday, US-based microprocessor manufacturer Qualcomm Inc, has announced the “Mesh Networking Platform”, which allows manufacturers of original equipment (OEM) and broadband operators to provide a “connected” home experience of the next generation.
Devices is based on this platform will be developed to provide reliable and consistent connection to “smart” home devices, as well as functions of voice control functions, centralized management and security.
While interacting with media, Qualcomm VP for product management, Sirineni Gopi said, “With our new platform Mesh Networking Platform Qualcomm, we are creating the foundation for accelerating the creation of next-generation systems in the grid to further improve the connected services to the Home.”
Network mesh is a network topology where each node relays data for a network. All mesh nodes cooperate to distribute information on the network. Compatible with both wired and wireless networks.
Qualcomm platform adds a set of self-organization features Wi-Fi (SON), built-in voice capabilities, a set of IoT connectivity options and flexibility in the way back.
“New features such as voice support and IoT radio integration not only transform consumer experience at home, but along with improved carrier-class functionality, it makes it easier for our customers to deploy and deploy cellular systems according to how people want their networks to be run.” He added.
