Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) which is nowadays becoming so is quickly for the Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity protocol of choice for a variety of use cases, which also includes the smart lighting, smart cities and asset tracking, where low-cost, power consumption and small footprint are one of the major requirements. According to the 2018 Bluetooth Market Update survey which happends, there will be more than 5 billion Bluetooth device shipments by the end of 2022, with 97% of them containing Bluetooth Low Energy technology.
However, we as an industry still need to make it easier and more secure for companies and developers to add BLE to their IoT devices to drive adoption levels to new level of heights. The Arm Cordio BLE Stack, continues to push the envelope which also helps in enabling the developers to build-in the right IoT connectivity solution for their application and market.
To further enhance our developer support, today at Bluetooth World, we are launching Arm Mbed Cordio Stack, which is the world’s first open-source, fully-qualified and product-ready Bluetooth Low Energy software stack, which gives developers even more flexibility in developing new IoT solutions with BLE connectivity.
Bluetooth 5 comes up with support for the 2x the data rate, 4x the range and 8x the broadcast capability which is as of now compared to the previous version, Bluetooth 4.2. the company has also integrated our Arm Cordio BLE stack with our free, open-source embedded operating system, Mbed OS.
The company as of now has around 350,000+ Mbed developer ecosystem which can initially innovate with the help of a full Bluetooth 5 stack as well as get forthcoming access to Bluetooth Mesh through Mbed OS.
Arm technology is at the heart of a computing and connectivity revolution that is transforming the way people live and businesses operate.
