Overview

Description

nRF Thread Topology Monitor is a cross-platform tool that enables developers to visualize Thread mesh network topology in real time. The application is supported on Windows and Ubuntu Linux with separate downloads for each platform.It requires a serial connection to an nRF52840 Development Kit with Nordic’s Thread solution.

nRF Thread Topology Monitor uses diagnostic mechanisms of the Thread protocol to retrieve information about routing tables of each Thread Router currently attached to the network.The tool also allows to identify a particular device in the network using LEDs by interacting with the Thread BSP solution. You may assign a custom label to a Thread node and store it in persistent memory on the PC side, which helps to track topology changes.
