Garmin Canada to Demonstrate Low-Power Mesh Solutions at Mobile World Congress 2019

Cochrane, AB – February 18, 2019ANT Wireless, a division of Garmin Canada and an innovator in ultra-low power (ULP) wireless technology, announced today that they will be exhibiting at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, February 25-28, 2019. Their featured demos will be on display in Hall 8, Fira Gran Via at booth #8.0E18. The company will be showcasing its latest mesh technologies that are directly suited for commercial, industrial, agricultural, and fitness applications.

“Garmin Canada’s presentation at Mobile World Congress will show our capabilities and longstanding experience in low power mesh technology,” said Andrew Skarsgard, Director of Wireless, Garmin Canada. “We’re excited to show how ANT’s high node count and low-power capabilities are
ideal for communicating sensor information in a wide range of applications.”

The ANT Wireless networking protocol is an established silicon solution used in over 250 million devices in the market including gyms, offices and factories across the globe. The technology is closely associated with fitness innovation but has also seen demand in commercial, industrial and agricultural markets. Garmin Canada offers ULP, dual-protocol modules based on ANT/BLE technology suitable for any kind of low data rate sensor network topologies. Garmin Canada will be demonstrating solutions for the following use cases in environments ranging
from individual use to large-scale and high density use with the following highlights:

  • High bandwidth mesh networking solutions for high node count applications in both commercial and industrial IoT environments with ANT BLAZE
  • Concurrent Bluetooth Low Energy/ANT+ applications, such as G.FIT, highlighting the ease of running multiple BLE roles seamlessly alongside ANT+ receive and sensor channels
  • High density solutions, such as G.FIT, for meeting the challenges of group fitness by ensuring large numbers of devices can connect concurrently to a leaderboard application
  • Ultra Low Power, high density mesh solutions that track data such as light intensity and temperature utilizing cloud-based monitoring

In particular, Garmin Canada will feature ANT BLAZE at Mobile World Congress. ANT BLAZE is a robust and reliable, enterprise-ready, connectionless mesh networking technology. It is ideal for high node count IoT applications in large scale and crowded environments.
