New CEL MeshWorks™ Wireless Platform Revolutionizes IoT Design and Development

July 9, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Telecommunications Weekly -- California Eastern Laboratories (CEL) announces the field trial release of its new MeshWorks™ Wireless Software Platform, a true turnkey solution enabling fast development and deployment of wireless sensors and control networks within the industrial, building automation, connected home, and lighting markets. It allows users to easily add wireless to their network and get it up and running to the cloud within hours.

MeshWorks™ unites several tools to create and simplify a complete mesh network design as part the Internet of Things (IoT). It has a powerful Graphical User Interface (GUI) equipped with a simple python script generator to help create complete scripts that can be loaded directly onto end devices. No experience is needed in writing C code or being fluent in complex mesh networking protocols like ZigBee or Z-Wave.

The complete platform consists of three key components: A wireless Personal Area Network (PAN) which is powered by CEL's MeshConnect™ 2.4GHz 802.15.4 modules, a GUI-driven programming interface driven by CEL's MeshWorks™ software suite, and cloud access which is provided by Exosite's new OpenTether™ (OT) cellular backhaul offering. A wired backhaul option is also available utilizing CEL's new MeshConnect™ Ethernet Gateway. Both gateway alternatives are offered as options within the MeshWorks™ development kit. MeshWorks™ also incorporates an optional Real-Time Locating Service (RTLS) technology from Buzby Works which can be implemented as supplemental code running on top of the MeshWorks™ firmware.

MeshWorks™ makes previously complex mesh networking systems incredibly fast and easy to implement for anyone with basic python scripting skills. It is designed to work with virtually any type of sensor in any application that requires M2M (Machine to Machine) communications.
