Meshdynamics Mesh Networks Scale    

Meshdynamics customers require last mile, glitch free, voice and video connectivity - even when the mesh nodes are moving at 60 mph. MeshControlTM delivers -- long after competing mesh architectures have run out of steam.

Meshdynamics patented multi-radio, multi-channel backhaul provides high throughput -- regardless of the number of relays ("hops)" and even with vehicles moving in rugged, hostile and hazardous terrain. Our backhaul ensures deterministic latency and jitter by eliminating both the bandwidth degradation effects of single radio backhauls and involuntary contention in multi-hop networks. Small packets (e.g VOIP) are supported efficiently through specialized "shuttles". This is  relevant to reliable, large scale, Machine to Machine (M2M) messaging for the edge of the network - where Internet of Things (IoT), resides.

Large system integrators and OEM licensees integrate MeshControlTM  software into their solutions and products, e.g.:
 
--  US, UK, Canadian Defense & Homeland Security Agencies deploy our products along strategic national borders. More
--  US Army Vehicle mounted mesh nodes maintain connectivity between convoys  and soldiers in motion at 60 mph. More
--  US Department of Energy (DOE) employs FIPS 140/2 certified models in nuclear energy asset protection. More
--  MSHA approved Mesh Nodes operate at underground coal mining sites in Africa, Australia,  Canada. More
--  Professional Golfers Association (PGA) employs our nodes for their tactical network at events, since 2005. More
--  OEM licensee Sharp extended our baseline code to develop the QX-C300 series family of 6 radio mesh nodes. 


What makes Meshdynamics Products Scale ?

Meshdynamics patented multi-radio, multi-channel backhaul provides high throughput -- regardless of the number of hops (relays) and even with vehicles moving in rugged terrain. Our backhaul ensures deterministic latency and jitter by eliminating both the bandwidth degradation effects of single radio backhauls and involuntary contention in multi-hop networks. Real time small packet deliveries are supported efficiently through specialized "shuttles" -- relevant to reliable, large scale, M2M messaging for IoT.

Our nodes connect as logical branches of a tree. As in Nature, a tree based routing is scalable, efficient and deterministic.
The loss of one branch of the tree, does not cripple the entire network. Tree based networks are inherently scalable and self healing.  Our mesh nodes manage branches of the "tree", with added features to support mobility, diverse transceivers etc.

A distributed control system, running on each "node", manages health of the network and clients. Nodes communicate through periodic "heart beats". The "heart beats" also supports real time publish and subscribe mechanisms. Periodic "shuttle" bus services provide periodic updates. "Apps" on nodes use these feeds to monitor edge devices.

The MeshControlTM  software is uniquely radio-manufacturer independent, allowing the rapid addition of new radio frequencies, radio suppliers and new technologies. The MeshControlTM software is therefore future-proof: it can been upgraded to new  RF standards, as they become proven and commercially feasible.

Key patents have been awarded in scalable, fault tolerant, mesh networking and its extensions for Military and Industrial IoT.


  Software Licensing Revenue Models


System integrators and OEM Source Code Licenses integrate Meshdynamics software into their solutions by purchasing:

1.  Mesh Nodes: The complete unit, with board, radios and outdoor enclosure, ready for deployment by system integrators.
2.  Mesh Engines: OEMs integrate the mesh board into their enclosures. The board, radio and software are sold as a unit.
3.  Source code license: Software source code and patent licensing, volumes 10,000+. Unlimited radios on units.
 
The mesh node software is Open Source, Industry Standards based. OEM Licensees extend the source code to support their custom radios and protocols. Meshdynamics and our technology partners support their product development cycles. 
 
The OEM software source code license also includes Open Source Eclipse and Java based Network Management System.
Licensees customize it to integrate real time voice, video and Internet of Things sensor streams  into enterprise work flows.

Meshdynamics works closely with our OEMs and software licensees to support specialized "apps", radios and protocols.
These include supporting a diverse (and growing) list of radios: 802.11abg 802.11ac, 802.11ah, Bluetooth, 802.15.4  Zigbee


  Industrial Internet of Things Collaborations
 
The Robotics and Automation background of Founder Francis daCosta has influenced our interests in Internet of Things. 
In 2012, Intel sponsored Francis to author "Rethinking the Internet Of Things". It received the 2014 Dr. Dobbs Jolt Award.
 
Meshdynamics and our OEM licensees are now jointly developing scalable, secure approaches to managing their network "Edge". Enterprise physical assets interact with each other at the edge of their networks. They may need adult supervision.
 
Applications on the mesh nodes monitor and control enterprise assets at the network edge. Data is analyzed and strategies are devised to automatically tune performance for The Abstracted Network for Enterprises and the Internet of Things
