ANT Wireless Showcases Extensive Mesh Technology Capabilities in Mobile Device Environments at MWC 2017

Introducing New Products Utilizing ANT High Node Count, Mesh Style Topologies

COCHRANE, AB--(Marketwired - February 14, 2017) - ANT Wireless, innovator in ultra-low power (ULP) wireless technology, is showcasing its powerful connectivity capabilities at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017 in Barcelona, February 27-March 2, 2017 -- booth 8.0B7. ANT Wireless will highlight products using its technology in smart home, commercial and group fitness applications

The ANT Protocol allows for high node count mesh topology networks connecting up to 500 devices that communicate seamlessly, while coexisting with wifi, BLE and other 2.4GHz networks. ANT's flexible and scalable connectivity solutions support the very large number of wireless nodes necessary for IoT use-cases. With the ability to connect smartphones into the ANT networks, ANT delivers a true IoT use-case experience.

VISIT ANT WIRELESS -- booth 8.0B7 -- to see and learn how ANT provides flexible and reliable ultra-low power wireless solutions for IoT applications. Featured use cases at the ANT Wireless booth include:

  1. SMART HOME automation from BIRDI. Using ANT's optimized, high-node count networking solution, Birdi's smart detectors are programmed to detect and alert to smoke, carbon monoxide and air quality changes.
  2. GROUP FITNESS connected spin class. Using continuous scanning star topology, products from Star Trac, North Pole Engineering and Performance IQ connect together using ANT+ device profiles to create a connected spin class with live metrics on a leaderboard screen

"At MWC we expect the ANT Protocol to shine as a foundational technology that enables smartphones, sensors and communication infrastructures to connect and accomplish incredible, tasks never before seen," said James Fujimoto, director of ANT Wireless.
