IoT Edge Router Boasts Multiple Long-range Bluetooth Connections

Cassia Network’s ‘E1000 Bluetooth IoT Edge Router promises to reduce the cost and complexity of outdated IoT connectivity and drives IoT innovation for industrial, healthcare and wellness, smart city, beaconing and retail, connected senior care and telemedicine, smart schools, and other enterprise IoT applications. Also, the Cassia E1000 Bluetooth IoT Edge Router increases bi-directional, real-time pairing to up to 40 devices, doubles bandwidth capacity, and delivers edge-processing for third-party applications.

 

Long-range Bluetooth Router The E1000 is the premier long-range Bluetooth IoT edge processing router for the IoT enterprise market. It extends Bluetooth low energy (LE) connectivity to over 300 meters (with field testing currently at much longer ranges) without requiring changes to the end devices. Combining the power of Cassia’s patented long-range Bluetooth antenna with Nordic’s Bluetooth 5-certified nRF52832 System-on-Chip (SoC), the router reduces the cost and complexity of enterprise IoT deployments, especially when compared to using costly smartphones or tablets as IoT gateways. In bi-directional mode, the E1000 controls up to 40 Bluetooth LE devices, while in ‘listening’ mode it can listen to many hundreds of devices.

 

Further, Bluetooth LE is a worldwide standard with billions of new sensors and devices deployed every year. The Cassia E1000 edge processing, long-range, and multiple bi-directional connections further liberates Bluetooth LE data. Coupled with Bluetooth’s ease of use, low power, ultralight weight, and extremely low price point the Bluetooth 5-certified Cassia E1000 deepens the “connection density” of Bluetooth IoT into existing infrastructure reducing installation costs, and is positioned for additional features and application innovations into the future.
