The technology 

Concurrent multicast in large-scale networks

Bluetooth mesh is a state-of-the-art standard that extends the capabilities of Bluetooth Low Energy to include the mesh networking. It enables powerful concurrent multicast (many-to-many) communication in networks with thousands of devices. The functionality is a vital update for new applications in lighting, sensor networking, predictive maintenance, asset tracking and positioning.

Bluetooth mesh is a managed flooding mesh, which is a simple and reliable approach to distribute messages in a larger networks. Reliability is ensured with multiple paths from source to destination and there is no single point of failure. Security permeates the technology, network and application security are completely separated, and protection against attacks is built in.
