MeshDynamics Customers   

Large Industrial Enterprise Networks require outdoor wireless mesh networking solutions to manage static and mobile assets.
 
Their requirements include one (or more) of the following:

1. Need more than 3 hops. Our patented two radio back haul scales to 64+ hops in mining tunnels. More
2. Need High speed mobility e.g. convoys or swarms traveling at 50 mph providing jitter free video.  More
3. On board intelligence in the routers to control machinery operating with spotty connectivity. More.
4. To verify/tune large wireless network behavior - at the system level - in real and virtual worlds . More

Exemplary Deployments:
 
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
Sharp Electronics extended our code base to develop a family of 6 radio mesh nodes. More  QXC300
SPAWAR, a division of the U.S. Navy, is implementing a disruption tolerant network for military machines. More.


MeshDynamics Core Intellectual Property

Our nodes connect as logical branches of a tree. As in Nature, a tree based routing is scalable, efficient and deterministic. Trees are inherently self healing.  The loss/corruption of a branch, does not cripple the entire network. Our mesh nodes manage branches of the wireless network "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 and enterprise "apps" running on the mesh nodes, communicate through periodic "heart beats". The heart beat framework also supports publish and subscribe mechanisms for real time sensor and control data streams. More

 
 
MeshDynamics Revenue Models

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

1. Nodes: White box, with board, radios and outdoor enclosure, ready for deployment by OEMs and system integrators.
2. Engines: The board, radio and embedded code, sold as a unit. OEMs integrate it into branded products. 
3. Source Code:  The MeshSuiteTM for OpenWRT based wireless routers and connected devices.

  
 
Industrial Internet of Things Collaborations
  
MeshDynamics has created a suite of software modules, source code included, intended to be incorporated into devices as diverse as robot drone swarms, wireless mesh nodes, and Internet of Things hubs, etc. We are seeking partners ready to test this source code base  for a fit with their own offerings, just as organizations as diverse as Sharp, the PGA Tour, mining OEMs, and the US Navy used the software currently and in the past. Mesh SuiteTM


About the Software

"MeshDynamics Scalable and Open Pub Sub enables us to rapidly integrate with Enterprise Class, OMG (Object Management Group)-approved, industry- standard messaging systems from RTI (Real-Time Innovations), PRISMTECH, OpenDDS, and others to provide assured real time end to end performance, even if we scale to millions of devices at the edge.”
Curtis Wright, Sr. Research Systems Engineer, Space and Navy Warfare Center, US Navy.  More

MeshDynamics’ propagator node software allows us to deploy WiFi networks today with minimal additional wiring and also incorporate emerging Internet of Things devices on the same infrastructure today and in the future.”
Mr. Arai Yuji, GM, Communication Division, Sharp Electronics, Japan. More


About Francis daCosta

The emerging Internet of Things architectural concepts and MeshDynamics wireless mesh networking propagator technology has been influenced by the Robotics and Machine Control background of founder Francis daCosta - early mesh nodes were installed on robots. Francis previously founded Advanced Cybernetics Group, providing robot control system software for mission critical applications, mandating real time sensor guided control and both local and supervisory control loops.

At MITRE, he served as an advisor to the United States Air Force Robotics and Automation Center of Excellence (RACE). In 2012, Intel sponsored Francis’ book Rethinking the Internet Of Things  It was a  finalist for the 2014 Dr. Dobbs Jolt Award.
