The first Bluetooth mesh modules were built in July of 2017. It was made explicitly to improve the Bluetooth networks range and enhance support for various industrial applications that use Bluetooth Low Energy.
Initially, only two different topologies were supported by all versions of Bluetooth:
- One-to-one: Involved connecting two BLE devices.
- One-to-many: Involved the operation of BLE devices solely in the Broadcast state, like Beacons.
With a Bluetooth mesh module from MOKOBlue, BLE now has a new topology. Your devices can now fully function in a mesh using a many-to-many topology. You can now set up the device’s connections with many other devices contained by the network.
How do Bluetooth mesh modules work?
Bluetooth mesh uses the Flood network to operate. In this network, the nodes positively transmit messages, either using the controlled flooding or uncontrolled flooding.
When transmitting messages by controlled flooding, every node is responsible for transmitting and receiving data. In uncontrolled flooding, similar messages are sent unconditionally to every node and all its neighbors. The Bluetooth Mesh uses a message cache to prevent transmission of similar or recently relayed messages. Some of the Bluetooth mesh 5.0 modules available at MOKOBlue are;
- MK08 nRF52840
- MK07 nRF52833
- MK02 nRF52832
- MK04 nRF52820
Features of Bluetooth mesh modules
Ultra-Low Power Consumption
Bluetooth mesh modules have power scaling features and dynamic power modes. Hence, they are efficiently used in mobile devices and on the internet of things since they consume low power.
Has Both WI-FI and Bluetooth Chips
Most Bluetooth mesh module has SDIO and SPI crossing points to offer WI-FI and Bluetooth roles. As they can be applied in multiple applications, these Bluetooth mesh module are built to work as a standalone system.
Bluetooth dual audio
Bluetooth mesh modules can be connected to a source using more than one audio device. Using the Bluetooth mesh 5 module, you can easily link two speakers or two headsets to your PC.
It has a Strong design
Most Bluetooth mesh module perform excellently in industrial surroundings under the temperature range of between –40°C to +125°C.

Functions of Bluetooth modules for Bluetooth mesh
With Bluetooth mesh, it becomes easy to create large-scale device networks. Bluetooth mesh is superlatively used to govern, monitor, and automate systems that require numerous devices to transmit information with each other. It is strictly designed to meet outstanding performance, security, and consistency in industrial and commercial settings. Also, the Bluetooth mesh has been rapidly embraced by the advanced control of commercial.
