1.1 Introduction: Wireless Network Challenges and Solutions for a Smarter Grid IoT
The Internet of Things (IoT) is now part of the smarter grid through the adoption of IPv6 communications networks. These 6LoWPAN-based networks address key concerns such as standards-based interoperability, reliability, low power, and long-distance connectivity.
This training will cover system- and software-level deep-dives on key communication protocols which comprise a 6LoWPAN-based RF network. The training will review new TI Designs/products for an RF network implementation on the CC1310 (or CC1350) wireless MCU and Beaglebone Black (BBB) platforms including both the end node and edge router (or gateway/data concentrator) solutions.
