The smart home technology industry is experiencing significant growth, but the proliferation of different systems and devices has made it difficult for people to adopt. To address this issue, industry leaders like Amazon, Apple, Google, and Samsung have championed the Matter standard, which aims to create a unified and interoperable framework for smart home devices. Matter enables the seamless integration of various connectivity standards, including Wi-Fi, Thread, Bluetooth, and Zigbee, which simplifies and secures the smart home ecosystem. The Connectivity Standards Alliance (CSA), formerly known as the Zigbee Alliance, played a critical role in driving this unification,f resulting in Matter being ratified industry-wide in October 2022.
In this article, we explore the synergy between Matter and high-performing tri-band Wi-Fi mesh networks and the potential for ongoing innovation in the smart home space. Qorvo is playing a key role in advancing IoT interoperability through its development tools that enable engineers to quickly create Matter-certified, industry-standard products.
