Hi,

Could anyone please suggest how to implement provisioning and controlling individual dimmable mesh device through client without mobile BLE mesh provisioner.

Let me describe the project, I have an outdoor street lighting gateway, implemented with MCU, which connects with cloud server. Is there any interface through that i can connect the MCU with client which will provision and control individual mesh dimmable device, taking individual device address and other data from the server.

It will be great if i could get more implementation details for the above mentioned project.

Best regards,

Niresh

Hi,

What is implemented in the existing street lighting gateway MCU?  Is it part of a mesh network or support mesh protocols?

Do you have a block diagram of your implementation?

Cypress Mesh Solution offers Mesh Gateway on CY8CKIT_062S2_43012 (BT+Wifi Combo platform) on Mbed OS. Users can add a mesh gateway node in their mesh network, and connect to the cloud. So that, the mesh network can be controlled from anywhere through the gateway node.  Please have a look in to this example mbed-os-example-bluetooth-mesh-gateway.

Thanks,

Hi,

Yes, I have gone through Cypress Mesh Gateway solution on CY8CKIT_062S2_43012(BT+Wifi combo flatform) but it may be suitable for indoor lighting not outdoor lighting where server communication is through GSM/GPRS modem. Please advise.

Does the Mesh Gateway have complete ready solution to implement or just beta version for demo purpose?

In the existing street lighting gateway we implemented power line communication(PLC). In PLC system, each node controller has its unique identification number (ID) that are registered in the cloud server. The same copy will be downloaded to corresponding gateway. Initially to form a network (dynamic routing protocol), all visible node controller sends an admission request message along with ID to the gateway controller and then the gateway accepts only if ID matches, else gateway rejects admission. Once node controller admission has been made with gateway, it assign a node ID and network ID through which data exchange is happening.

Hi,

From mesh spec. (https://www.bluetooth.com/specifications/mesh-specifications/ )

"A mesh gateway is a node that is able to translate messages between the mesh network and a non-Bluetooth technology. A node may be able to send and receive mesh messages through a mesh gateway while not in the range of any of the Relay nodes. This translation is out of scope for this specification"

Cypress Mesh Gateway solution is a custom implementation of the mesh gateway which uses IoT Protocol such as REST or MQTT based brokers (AWSIoT).

" It may be suitable for indoor lighting not outdoor lighting where server communication is through GSM/GPRS modem."

The server devices (lights) should be nodes in the BLE mesh network, meaning communication will be happening over Bluetooth. You can add a mesh Gateway node in the network to enable the user to control the mesh network from anywhere from the world.  .

BLE Mesh is ideally suited for control, monitoring, and automation systems where tens, hundreds, or thousands of devices need to reliably and securely communicate with one another.
