SmartMesh IP

SmartMesh IP is the name of the product line I’m most involved with at Dust Networks/Analog Devices.

While this is certainly not my project, I’ve been a major contributor to the following aspects:

  • Development inside the lower-layers of the SmartMesh IP protocol stack.
  • The (mostly Python-based) ecosystem, including the SmartMesh SDK and a web-based interface.

SmartMesh IP is the latest protocol stack from the Analog Devices’ Dust Networks product group. A descendant of long-standing ultra-low power and ultra-high reliability such as WirelessHART, the SmartMesh IP protocol stack combines the industrial performance of IEEE802.15.4e with the ease-of-use of IPv6.

SmartMesh IP received the prestigious “ACE IoT Product of the Year” award in December 2017.

Today, SmartMesh IP is the best-in-class TSCH product/implementation: >99.999% end-to-end reliability, <50uA average current draw for all devices, <15us synchronization error across the entire network. >60,000 SmartMesh networks operate today.
