How Multi-Standard IoT Communications Are Enabled By ConcurrentConnect Technology

Source: Qorvo

The proliferation of IoT devices and communication protocols in a smart home network has created a difficult challenge for engineers and network architects. Keeping network activities coordinated between many standards while minimizing latency has become more complex. Here are excerpts from our video demonstrating Qorvo's ConcurrentConnect™ technology work on the QPG6100 – a smart home communications controller that improves connection speed among wireless devices in the home environment.

Taking Multiprotocol Support to the Next Level

Although many IoT devices in the smart home include support for multiple protocols, most rely on time division multiplexing for communication. Time division multiplexing (TDM) is a communications process that transmits two or more streaming digital signals over a common channel. This works well for a minimum number of devices, but in more complex home networks, the inherent latency and potential for dropped communications create problems. As shown in Figure 1, multiple devices competing simultaneously for a slice of communication time can disrupt network activity.
