JLH Labs provides cutting edge micro-wireless solutions that push the frontier of wireless networking. Micro-wireless technology leaps beyond the capabilities of Bluetooth and 802.11 in order to allow ultra-low power, embedded, low-cost devices to seamlessly interoperate. The web of connectivity that is created can drastically reshape how building automation, security systems, environmental monitoring and logistics support are performed. A bidirectional, multi-hop communication capability provides the foundation for a new era in embedded communication.


The micro-networking of JLH Labs goes beyond connecting together PCs and cell phones. Instead, JLH Labs has enabled networks of inch-sized sensors and actuators that tightly couple cyberspace to the physical world. Sensors and actuators automatically self-configure and join together by using advanced mesh networking techniques in order to form a web of connectivity. Each individual node only plays a small part in the overall application. By working together, a complex system wide capability emerges that transforms the discrete nodes into a unified system. The distributed computing techniques used allow for these networks to be incrementally scalable and highly robust without a central controller there is no single point of failure.


The core technical team of JLH Labs has years of experience working in the low-power wireless space. They have designed and built several generations of wireless nodes that have been demonstrated through a wide range of military, commercial, and residential applications. The technical foundation of JLH Labs is based on the TinyOS research program at the University of California Berkeley. As a lead researcher at UC Berkeley, Jason Hill designed TinyOS to be a special-purpose operating systems for low-power mesh networks. At JLH Labs, he is customizing TinyOS for commercial applications.
