Bluetooth SIG Releases New Standard For Bluetooth NLC

Bluetooth SIG Releases New Standard For Bluetooth NLC

 

The Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) recently announced its full-stack standard for wireless lighting control, Bluetooth Networked Lighting Control (NLC). It is designed to meet the scale, reliability, and security demands in commercial settings. Bluetooth NLC enables multi-vendor interoperable wireless lighting control systems and unlocks the potential for mass adoption of wireless lighting control.

The standard creates standardization and interoperability, making it easier to combine products from multiple manufacturers to create fit-for-purpose, value-added systems. Standardization also helps reduce the costs of development, expand the overall size of the market, and encourage innovation by allowing manufacturers to focus their engineering efforts on higher-level, value-added capabilities.

The figure below summarizes the Bluetooth lighting control standard and highlights how Bluetooth® NLC enables true multi-vendor interoperability. You can learn more about the new Bluetooth NLC standard here.
