WHY WE MADE THREAD
Thread was designed with one goal in mind: To create the very best way to connect and control products in the home.
Every wireless networking protocol available was painstakingly evaluated. None met all of our requirements.
- Simple for the consumer
- Always secure
- Very low power consumption
- Robust mesh networking
- Based on standard Internet protocols including IPv6
- True interoperability for all devices
- No single point of failure
- Multiple silicon providers
We focused on improving existing wireless technology to build an Internet of Things for the home that takes the user experience to the next level. Thread networks are so simple and secure you'll enjoy using them.
Thread is not just another 6LoWPAN stack. We have solved the critical issues inherent in other wireless protocols. The Thread Group is dedicated to make it easy for manufacturers and consumers to connect products around the home.
The Thread Group is primarily focused on marketing, promotion and ensuring a great experience through rigorous, meaningful product certification.
