Mesh Networking

Bluetooth 5.0 mesh network communication

The mesh networking capabilities of Bluetooth® Toolbox enable you to create a Bluetooth mesh network and realize mesh packet communication.

Use the features and reference examples to:

  • Create, configure, and visualize a Bluetooth mesh network.

  • Analyze mesh packet communication and compute energy consumption of nodes in the transmission, listen, sleep, and idle states.

  • Simulate managed flooding and visualize the flow of packets.
