Getting your IoT devices to mesh with thread
Featuring Brandon Satrom, Developer Advocate for Particle
Building for the Internet of Things is no longer about getting a single connected device online over a local Wi-Fi or even cellular connection. Increasingly, real IoT projects - be they for smart home, smart factory, or shop floor - utilize a swarm of devices to interact with sensors, report status, and manage actuators. In these cases, the challenge isn't just getting your devices online, but getting them to work together.
Thankfully, Thread and Particle Mesh makes dealing with swarms of devices straight forward - with cutting-edge open hardware and standards, developer-friendly APIs for managing devices, and a Device Cloud that serves as your all-powerful hive-mind.
In this session, we'll explore how mesh networking through Thread solves some of the hardest problems in the IoT space today, as well as how Particle Mesh leverages Thread to power its newest generation of connected devices.
