Loud-Hailer, Inc.: Providing IoT functionality without the Internet
- Resource URL:
- Description of Startup:
- IoT is great, promising many exciting use cases. But, it's subject to the limitations of the Internet as well. The Internet is not available everywhere, can be expensive to provide, and prone to service interruptions. Loud-Hailer has developed a proprietary Bluetooth mesh networking solution that aims to provide IoT functionality but without the Internet. That means Loud-Hailer’s solution will work in places such as in the desert, underground, at sea, convention halls, stadiums and any place with poor or no connectivity. To realize the full potential of our vision, however, will require the improvement of further Bluetooth standards in areas such as true mesh, range, energy consumption, latency and data chunks. At Loud-Hailer we’re not about the Internet of Things, we’re about Things.
