Thursday, February 15, 2018: 8:30 AM - 9:00 AM
Bluetooth Mesh, the first wireless standard designed with professional lighting applications in mind, is finally here*. Aspiring to become a wireless equivalent of DALI and developed in a collaborative effort of wireless communication experts and lighting industry professionals, it is a comprehensive technology capable of meeting the most demanding requirements of today's professional lighting systems. But this is also what makes the Bluetooth Mesh specification quite a complex document, addressing many of typical lighting features from the perspective of IT networks. As a representative of a company which has strongly contributed to the development of this new global standard, I would like to present the most important aspects of the specification, outlining the core paradigms of Bluetooth Mesh and focusing on practical issues relating to implementation and maintenance of connected lighting networks based on this new exciting technology.
