Manage Thousands of Nodes Through Secure Commissioning with Thread 1.2 Network Protocol
The connectivity protocols for the Internet of Things (IoT) require enhancements to support larger networks. The Thread 1.1 protocol was designed to support up to 250 devices for Smart Home and Smart Building use cases. The Commercial Extensions of Thread 1.2 enable it to be used in a wider array of use cases for Commercial Buildings by supporting thousands of nodes in the network. For a Smart Home use case based on the Thread 1.1 mesh networking protocol, the user commissions the network manually by adding new nodes to the network in a secure manner. For a large-node Commercial Building use case, the mesh commissioning protocol for the Thread 1.2 network was enhanced to support secure commissioning of a network composed of thousands of nodes. This paper addresses the ways to manage the secure commissioning of a Thread 1.2 network for Commercial Buildings that have networks composed of thousands of Thread nodes.
