What’s new in WiLink 8 solutions

WiLink™ 8 Wi-Fi® mesh networking solution

802.11s Wi-Fi mesh topology enables extended coverage without the need for additional equipment or wiring- a superior solution for audio, industrial and building automation markets. The Wi-Fi mesh solution easily adds connectivity to new or formerly out-of-range devices. Our self-healing network and optimized path selection algorithm provides robust network reliability. The mesh solution open source package is compatible with all WiLink 8 modules and free to download.

WiLink™ 8 mesh audio demo kit

TI supports a wide range of new connectivity use cases with Wi-Fi mesh networking capabilities. The audio demo kit uses the 802.11s Wi-Fi mesh topology to demonstrate a multi-room audio solution- eliminating the need for an access point to connect each speaker by connecting with one another. The audio is synchronized to less then 20us to provide a seamless listening experience. The design uses a single Bluetooth a2dp audio input stream as it’s source, which gets simultaneously played to all connected speaker.
