Qualcomm's mesh networking platform sets stage for connected homesQualcomm has introduced the mesh networking platform, a combination of technologies, over which OEMs and broadband carriers can deliver connected home experiences.

Devices based on the platform will be designed to deliver robust and consistent connectivity to smart home devices in every corner of the home, as well as feature voice control capabilities, centralised management and security, and a range of mesh system features essential for carrier-grade networks.

“Qualcomm Technologies helped create a new category of mesh networks that are transforming in-home connectivity. With our new Qualcomm Mesh Networking Platform, we are building upon that foundation to accelerate the next generation of mesh systems to further enhance connected services in the home,” said Gopi Sirineni, vice president, product management, Qualcomm Technologies. “New capabilities like voice assistance and IoT radio integration will not only transform consumer experiences at home, but along with carrier-grade feature enhancements, make it easier for our customers to adopt and deploy mesh systems aligned to how people want their networks to perform.”

Based upon the Qualcomm IPQ40x8/9 network system-on-chip, the platform include Wi-Fi self-organising (SON) feature suite, carrier grade features, and integrated voice capabilities. It offers a variety of backhaul options. Mesh networking reference design offers manufacturers an expedient path for the commercialisation of next-generation networking products.
