ANT Wireless Releases Enterprise-Scale Mesh Networking Technology, ANT BLAZE

ANT BLAZE offers unparalleled, independent mesh wireless network for challenging high-node count environments; Herman Miller scales smart office with ANT BLAZE

COCHRANE, AB--(Marketwired - June 13, 2017) - ANT Wireless, a division of Dynastream Innovations, an innovator in ultra-low power (ULP) wireless technology, today announced ANT BLAZE, a robust and reliable enterprise-ready connectionless mesh networking technology for handling high node count IoT applications in large scale environments. Operating independently of existing on-premise IT infrastructures, ANT BLAZE is a powerful connectivity solution targeting monitoring and control applications in challenging environments. It can be used concurrently with smartphones and tablets without interfering with these Bluetooth enabled devices.

Herman Miller, a market leader in commercial environments and office furniture design, is at the forefront of bringing Internet of Things into the office, and is one of the first to deploy ANT BLAZE in its product offering. "Dynastream has been a valuable partner in helping Herman Miller to create Live OS, our platform for smart, connected office furniture. ANT Blaze provided us with a power efficient, sensor-oriented solution to create a robust and secure mesh network, ideal for use in corporate office environments," said Alex Cammenga, Sr Program Manager Live OS of Herman Miller.

"ANT BLAZE is a unique network technology that Herman Miller has chosen for their smart-office solution," said James Fujimoto, Director of ANT Wireless. "We are extremely excited to have Herman Miller as one of our lead customers of ANT BLAZE. They are an example of the possibilities of ANT BLAZE being limitless across industries."

As a proven, highly efficient technology that effortlessly connects up to 500 nodes at once, companies interested in harnessing IoT capabilities can utilize ANT BLAZE to monitor and control processes, equipment and assets.

ANT BLAZE is available on D52 ANT System-on-Chip (SoC) Premium Modules from Dynastream Innovations Inc. bringing valuable high-node count solutions to the concurrent ANT/BLE connectivity capability of the modules.

Upgraded D52 ANT SoC Module Starter Kit (D52DK2) and a newly released Extender Kit (D52EXT1), provide developers with the specifically designed development tools necessary to create and prove-in their IoT use-case solutions.
