In this era of technology, the invention of Bluetooth, WiFi has developed a lot of things that changed almost everything. That made our lives better too. There always have been some limitations of usage and mankind of the current generation is continuously making it better and better so that we, human beings can live comfortable lives on this planet. The aforementioned invention of Bluetooth has also some limitations such as limitation of range.
Bluetooth Mesh Network has several advantages and applications in this decade. Some of them are enlisted here:
- a wireless connection between laptop/pc and smart devices.
- a wireless connection between various peripherals(mouse, keyboard, etc.) and devices(radio, audio speaker, displays, etc.) and mobile phones.
- transfer of files, images, and MP3 between mobile phones.
- Data logging equipment that transmits data to a computer.
- Smart homes
- Commercial IoT application
- Smart manufacturing
- Peer networking
- And a lot more…
But these applications are defined within certain ranges. For example, we can not use transfer data or files between the devices that are located at a distance of a mile. A powerful Bluetooth mesh network can be created and by giving its access globally, we can utilize it in a variety of application including messaging. And hence, Individual consumers and developers remain locked out of this lucrative market. And that’s where Orbis comes into the picture. You will Orbis review here in brief.
What is Orbis?
The Orbis platform aims to establish a platform for both consumer and commercial developments in Bluetooth mesh by establishing pre-existing infrastructure and network for developers to deploy onto.
Orbis creates a multi-purpose and flexible infrastructure for developers to build upon and consumers to utilize delivering this through three components: OrbiStore, OrbisWeb, and OrbisToken (OBT). Orbis has applications in IoT development, crowdsourced networking, and systems integrations.
How does Orbis Work?
Let’s take a simple application, for example, messaging. Messaging however only stands in for the general transmission of data over mesh networks.
After downloading the OrbisWeb app for your IOS or Android device click “connect” and your phone is now a part of a Bluetooth network, a node in OrbisWeb. Then you can proceed to download an app, perhaps Bluetooth messaging from the OrbiStore. Using the app, your message is broadcasted to all nodes in the range that then, broadcast to other users, is in kind repeated and relayed.
This occurs until your recipient has received your message. And all the while, like your phone to is relaying others’ data, your wallet will be credited OrbisTokens simply for being part of the network which can then be used to purchase paid apps in the OrbiStore.
The value of such decentralized messaging in the face of seemingly universal SMS service and Wi-Fi is that mesh networks are not susceptible to infrastructure damage such as in the wake of natural disasters nor do they require costly connectivity implementations in low-connectivity places such as subway tunnels, underpasses, or even rural areas.
Orbis Review and Analysis:
- Understanding the point of view towards project application
- Good interface
They should provide an explainer or whiteboard video of the project on the homepage so that non-technical people can understand in an easy way.
The development and progress of the project rely on team members. Starting from the architectural overview on a piece of paper to how it can be implemented to market and its duration tends to depend on team and advisors. Orbis has a team of very young members with an aim to lead the project idea to a partnership with actual companies.
- OrisWeb android app alpha version available
- Not having noticeable competitors.
- Partnered with Ritech Technology (Shenzhen) Co. Ltd.
