ANT Like Bluetooth low energy technology, ANT is a connectionless protocol. ANT has been in existence for some time and has many products in the market today, specifically in the areas of sports and fitness. ANT was developed by a small team in a private organization with focused goals, not by a consortium of contributing member companies. The ANT stack is compact, scalable, flexible, focused and proven in a market where millions of devices are operational today.

ANT+ extends ANT to support interoperability through member-defined public profiles that can be available within six months after aligning stakeholders. As a proprietary protocol, ANT is focused on specific solutions, thereby reducing power and complexity. Although ANT is not currently Continua Certified, TI offers ANT solutions that enable interoperability with existing health devices in the market while enabling future pin-compatible Bluetooth low energy devices to also be supported.

View demos of ANT on the WiLink 6.0 smartphone at www.ti.com/ant-wl127x-video and the CC2570 stand-alone at www.ti.com/ant-alliance-video. The following profiles are currently supported by ANT:

  • Heart rate monitor

  • Speed and distance monitor

  • Bicycle speed

  • Bicycle cadence

  • Bicycle power

  • Weight scale

  • Fitness equipment

  • Multisport speed and distance monitor
