Osram Unveils prototype of Worlds First LED Lamp Controlled by the Thread network protocol at CES 2016
Osram today unveiled a prototype of world’s first LED lamp controlled by the Thread network protocol at CES 2016. Designed for the application of different smart home devices in and outdoor, Thread is an IPv6 networking protocol built on open standards for low-power 802.15.4 mesh networks that can easily and securely connect hundreds of devices to each other and directly to the cloud. This allows devices like lamps and luminaires to build a freely meshed network.
The non-profit Thread Group has more than 220 members worldwide and gained a lot of interest as well as rapid growth since its foundation in October 2014. The Thread Group is focused on making Thread the foundation for the Internet of Things, showing product developers and consumers on the unique features and benefits, and ensuring a great user experience through rigorous, meaningful product certification.
