People are adding lifestyle, management and safety conveniences to their home and work environments through the Internet of Things (IoT). Leveraging connections between smart sensors, appliances and controllers is a growing trend. Smart devices can connect to one another wirelessly, forming personal high node count networks accessed from tablets and smartphones. These small, local networks are growing and the devices within them are demanding connections to internet resources beyond their scope. Market predictions point to tens of billions of devices all connected and sharing data in the coming years.
As people are increasingly exploring the possibilities of the Internet of Things, it is becoming clear that there is no single wireless networking solution that can serve every “what if” scenario. ANT, the Ultra-Low Power (ULP) networking protocol, addresses many applications with its family of high node count solutions, interconnecting wireless devices in easy and practical ways. With ANT, the connection topology between devices can be chosen to fit the use case, rather than requiring the use case to conform to a particular topology.
From simple personal sensor networks to the broader IoT, the ULP high node count network solutions enabled by ANT deliver robust and reliable control from remotes, wearables, smartphones and tablets.
