BluMesh® is Mesh-Net’s new proprietary Bluetooth5 MESH networking protocol developed for Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications including Smart Buildings, Lighting, Metering, Wireless sensor networks, Renewable Energy, Data Centres, Remote Monitoring, Industrial and Home automation.

BluMesh is

Powerful

Utilising the newly released larger data packets in Bluetooth5, BluMesh provides not only the ability to build large sensor networks but also minimise the developers headache in developing the networking strategy for their sensors. 

Simple to use and deploy

Developers can now focus on the business needs and leave all the complicated mesh networking setup, data transporting and control on BluMesh.  
BluMesh is available on Mesh-Net’s own Bluetooth5 module or can be provided on other off the shelf modules such as the Laird BL654.

Secure

BluMesh has multi layered security built in. Separate network keys and application keys with end to end data encryption using industry standard AES-128. Capability to remotely refresh keys mitigates against trash can attacks.

Scalable

Propagate data through hundreds or thousands of nodes. BluMesh allows for dense and large scale deployments in the most challenging enviroments.

Reliable

With every node in the network capable of communicating with every other node, builds in network redundancy with no single point of failure.

Bluetooth LE v4 vs Bluetooth LE v5

BluMesh works using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) 5.0; these are the key differences between BLE version 4 and BLE v 5:

Bluetooth Version
Range
Speed
Message Length
Data Transfer Rate
Maximum Output Power
4.0
60m (200 feet) 25 Mbit/s 31 bytes 1Mb/s 10mW
5.0
1500m (5000 feet) 50 Mbit/s 255 bytes 2Mb/s 100mW

BluMesh vs Bluetooth Mesh v1

These are the key differences between BluMesh and Bluetooth Mesh v1.0:

Bluetooth version
5.0
4.0
Data Payload
199 bytes 10 bytes
Number of hops
Unlimited 127
Configuration
Simple API AT Type Commands Custom complex coding
Mesh Network Setup
In minutes (see video below for a demo) Several days / weeks based on Configuration
Maximum number of Nodes

BluMesh Evaluation Kit

..ChatThe BluMesh Evaluation Kit allows for quick and easy evaluation of BluMesh mesh networking technology for your application.

The BluMesh Eval Kit has the following sensors onboard:

  • Temperature Sensor
  • Humidity Sensor
  • Gyroscope
  • Accelerometer
  • 3 Push Buttons
  • 5 LEDs

Developers can quickly get familiar with the easy API commands to configure and test their mesh network. Option to write code for the micro or communicate directly with the BluMesh module via USB.
