Coffee with Cassia Networks, Booth 851, at IoT World 2018
May 15-17, 2018, Santa Clara, CA Convention and Exhibition Center: Cassia Networks is presenting three demonstrations of long-range Bluetooth connectivity in booth 851 at while at IoT World 2018. Visitors to the booth at IoT World 2018 will also have the opportunity to win Starbucks coffee cards while at the booth and Coffee with Cassia meet ups.
The first presentation on long-range Bluetooth demonstrates how the transformation of a Bluetooth network, from a short-range, point solution, into a complete, long-range, multi-connectivity, enterprise-level Bluetooth industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solution is achieved. Specifically, the demonstration describes how ABB Ability Smart Sensors are currently using Cassia long-range Bluetooth routers to provide an industrial IoT predictive maintenance solution, as described in a use case here.
The second presentation at IoT World 2018 describes how Cassia Networks IoT solution includes an IoT Access Controller (AC), so that users have remote access and control of their end devices. The Cassia AC enables seamless deployment and management of hundreds of Bluetooth routers connected to thousands of devices in an enterprise environment from one centralized interface. Additional features include: security policy management, Bluetooth locationing, seamless Bluetooth device roaming, and dynamic load balancing.
IoT World 2018: Live sensor demo
Finally, while at IoT World 2018 the Cassia Networks team is demonstrating the live use of Texas Instruments (TI) Bluetooth low energy sensors connected to a Cassia Networks E1000 IoT Edge Gateway. The E1000 Bluetooth Gateways accomplishes three key tasks for an IoT network, including:
- Long-range Bluetooth – It extends the connectivity range of Classic Bluetooth and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) up to 1000 feet. Note: No hardware changes are required on employed Bluetooth sensors to achieve this range.
- Connection density– The E1000 connects up to 40 devices simultaneously in pairing mode, and several hundred devices in listening-only mode creating highly cost-effective “connection density.”
- Third-party application – The E1000 provides “edge” computing capability. In other words, third-party applications may be placed on the E1000 for creating context-specific use case functionality.
Visitors to IoT World 2018 are invited to visit Cassia Networks booth 851 IoT World 2018 event in Santa Clara from 4-6 pm PST, May 15, 10 am- 6 pm PST May 16, 10 am – 4 pm PST, May 17 for the presentations. Also, visitors to the booth will also have opportunities to “Connect with Cassia” over a cup of coffee in the form of a Starbucks gift card drawing at the event, as well as meetings in around the headquarters in Silicon Valley and elsewhere.
