Meshdynamics' 16 years technology focus has been high-performance wireless networking for IoT and enterprise
applications with substantial patented and patent-pending
Unique value propositions include deterministic performance
over many hops, robust and resilient outdoor networking
topologies, and easier integration of legacy and emerging IOT.
We bring value to Industrial OEMs with requirements for
bringing IoT devices into larger enterprise networks
coordinated with SDN, as well as Government agencies with
security, monitoring, performance and surveillance needs for
IoT devices at the edge of the network.
We are located in Santa Clara, California, in Silicon Valley, with
software development teams in USA and India.
We are a minority owned small business, profitable since 2009.
Outdoor Enterprise (e.g. military, mining, Industrial
Internet) connected- machine requirements include:
1. Need more than 3 hops. Our patented two radio back
haul scales to 64+ hops in mining tunnels.
2. Need High speed mobility e.g. convoys or swarms traveling
at 50 mph providing jitter free video.
3. On board intelligence in the routers to control
machinery operating with spotty connectivity.
4. To verify/tune large wireless network behavior - at the
system level - in real and virtual worlds .
Meshdynamics has licensing partnerships with OEMs,
enterprises, and government agencies with requirements to
integrate very large numbers of sensors, actuators,
appliances, and other machines at the network edge.
Licensees include current and future network equipment vendors, selling their versions of
Other potential licensees include members of

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.
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. Exemplary source code for 80211.ac
radios provided with customization support for
licensee-specific radios, protocols and specialized use cases.
Post 2014, we shifted our emphasis to
providing IP licensing
for OEMs and their system integrators.
- Non Recurring Engineering (NRE) expenses are negotiated directly with
OEM's System Integrator.
- System Integrator Is given access to Meshdynamics test beds to aid OEM
in making informed decisions.
- Domain specific IP, developed as extensions to Mesh Suite,.
is owned by OEM licensees.
Meshdynamics IP Licensing options are:
1. IP License: No source code - OpenWRT code base
is not needed by OEM or their system integrator. .
: Source code: OpenWRT based wireless routers
and app framework IP license is mandatory. .
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.”

Space and Navy Warfare Center, US Navy.
“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,

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, a finalist for 2014
