New IP Based Protocol from Thread Consortium Addresses Wireless Connectivity
FREMONT, CA: The Thread Group, a consortium comprising of over 160 companies entitled to Internet of Things (IoT) launches Thread, a new IP based wireless networking protocol aiming on low-power connected products.
Thread works on open source interconnection with IPv6 technology and extends support to battery operated devices. The group consists of semiconductor established giant companies like ARM, Freescale, Qualcomm and Silicon Labs. Built on network layer out of the seven different networking layer, it provides switching and routing technologies as well as virtual circuit path for transmitting data from node to node.
The IP based networking protocol offers reliable networks with a self healing mesh technology connecting more than 250 devices with no single point of failure. It gives banking-class MAC encryption security where user can access internet directly and connect to cloud for easy control from anywhere. It requires no new hardware deployment, as it is simple to install on a smartphone, tablet or computer with just software enhancement.
It implements a simple commissioning process and requires security implementation between the new device and commissioning device to authenticate enhancing its security constraint.
Thread networks involves three nodes. The first End nodes are battery operated and do not act as routing data packets to other nodes. Secondly the Router eligible nodes can direct traffic in network, it assigns a leader to manage the network, and if one leader fails it simultaneously moves for another leader. Border Router is the last node providing a bridge between Thread network to IP based network as Wi-Fi or Ethernet.
