Nest Offers Thread For IoT

The Alphabet/Google smart-home company Nest is rolling out OpenThread, an open-source reference code implementation of the Thread networking protocol created in 2014.

Nest said the latest protocol is set to make it a lot easier to create apps that work with Nest and its secure thermostat. “Thread makes it possible for devices to simply, securely and reliably connect to each other and to the cloud,” said Greg Hun, head of Nest platform and works.

“And because Thread is an IPv6 networking protocol built on open standards, millions of existing 802.15.4 wireless devices on the market can be easily updated to run Thread.

“OpenThread will significantly accelerate the deployment of Thread in these devices.”
