Thread & BLE
Thread & Bluetooth Low Energy-Technologie
Thread is an IPv6-based mesh networking protocol, for connecting products around the home and in buildings to each other, to the internet and to the cloud. Thread networks are simple to install, highly secure, scalable to hundreds of devices and developed to run on low-power IEEE 802.15.4 chipsets.
Thread offers a secure, IP-based mesh networking solution and provides support for sleepy nodes, while allowing years of operation from a single battery.
Bluetooth Low Energy is a wireless personal area network technology, which esteablishes the interface between IoT applications and your smart device.
The module is available as a dual-mode-module providing Thread & Bluetooth Low Energy technology with NXP chip KW41Z (SPARROW GOLD) and as a Thread-only-module using NXP chip KW21Z, IPv6/ 6LoWPAN (SPARROW GREY).
