Enabling bidirectional wireless communication between IBM Cloud and Bluetooth Low Energy peripherals through SimpleLink™ Wi-Fi®

CPD 1 hour logo

This activity can contribute towards your Continuing Professional Development (CPD) as part of the IET's CPD monitoring scheme

Join us and our speakers from Texas Instruments, Benjamin Moore and Beatrice Fankem, to understand how we enable bidirectional wireless communication between IBM Cloud and BLE peripherals.

Date: Tuesday, July 11, 2017
Time: 15:00 British Summer Time
Duration: 1 hour

Wi-Fi is the preferred technology to connect any product to the internet, even products that use BLE. BLE enabled products are usually controlled locally by wireless mobile devices. However, there are many instances where it is desirable to access or control the BLE peripherals even when the user is not within range to connect via BLE. Adding Wi-Fi connectivity, as a gateway, enables new use cases, including remote monitoring and control.

This system design demonstrates how the CC3220 and CC2640 SimpleLink MCU Developer ecosystem can be used to quickly create a simple Wi-Fi Gateway for BLE peripherals.

Key learning outcomes from the webinar:

  • Understand the new low power and multilayer comprehensive security features of the great SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3220, a wireless microcontroller system-on-a-chip (SoC).
  • Learn how to use the CC3220 and CC2640 SimpleLink MCU Developer ecosystem to create a Wi-Fi Gateway for BLE peripherals.
  • Understand how Texas Instruments enables bidirectional wireless communication between IBM Cloud and BLE peripherals.
