MeshDynamics' technology expertise includes multi-radio mesh
networking, extremely lightweight Internet of Things (IoT)
protocols for simple devices, and Software-Defined Networking
capabilities for publish/discover/subscribe in IoT and
enterprise networks. The company is focused on
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.
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.
Large Industrial Enterprise Networks require outdoor
wireless mesh networking solutions to manage static and mobile assets.
Their requirements include one (or more) of the
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 .

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.
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.

MeshDynamics Revenue Models
System integrators and OEM Source Code Licenses integrate MeshDynamics
software into their solutions by purchasing:
Nodes: White box, with board, radios and outdoor enclosure, ready for deployment by
OEMs and system
2. Engines: The board, radio
and embedded code, sold as a
unit. OEMs integrate it into branded products.
Source Code: The MeshSuiteTM for OpenWRT
based wireless routers and connected devices.
Industrial Internet of Things
MeshDynamics has created a suite of software
modules, source code included, intended to be
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. Collaboration Welcomed
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.
“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.
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
