Amazon launching long-range Sidewalk network for IoT devices

Amazon recently announced Amazon Sidewalk, a longer-range and low power equivalent to Bluetooth and Wi-Fi wireless protocols.

The Sidewalk aimed at solving the short-range and high power problem associated with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and other available technologies.

At the Amazon Devices Event 2019, Amazon Sidewalk introduced as a low-bandwidth and extremely secure network. It leverages 900 MHz spectrum allowing to control simple, low-cost, edge IoT devices.

Executive Opinion

The Reuters report noted the statement of Chief Executive Officer of Amazon, Jeff Bezos who said, "People don't even realize yet how important that intermediate-range is going to be, for things like lights in your yard, controlling your lights on your sidewalk in the street."

Amazon Sidewalk and IoT Devices

According to live event coverage blog, it seems Amazon has engaged with Ring HQ to test Amazon Sidewalk network.  With 700 devices Ring HQ could completely cover LA Basin city and ensured complete coverage of Sidewalk network.

Amazon also announced the Ring Fetch dog tracker leveraging Amazon sidewalk. The dog tracker will be available next year.

To solve challenges with over-the-air updates of Internet of things (IoT) devices, Amazon plans to publish this protocol so that a larger developer community can leverage the network, says the blog on event coverage.
