Meshdynamics
Meshdynamics Company Information  
Executive Summary

Meshdynamics' technology expertise includes multi-radio mesh  networking, extremely lightweight Internet of Things (IoT) 
protocols for simple devices, and Software-Defined Networking  (SDN) 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 Intellectual Property.

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
.
We are located in Santa Clara, California, in Silicon Valley, with software development teams in USA and India. 
We are a UK, US and Canada government approved network equipment supplier. We are FIPS 140/2 certified.
  

Meshdynamics Customers   

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. 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

Licensees include current and future network equipment vendors, selling customized versions of  Modular MeshTM  

Meshdynamics Core Intellectual Property

Our industrial mesh routers 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 router, 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. More  
 
 
Meshdynamics Licensing for OEMs and System Integrators

Over the past decade, Meshdynamics has supplied customized versions of our mesh networking software to OEMs that include multiple military contractors, industrial mining solution providers and industrial network equipment manufacturers.

The core mesh software was ported to run on boards (processors) and radios of the customer's choosing. Meshdynamics system integrators, working directly with the OEM licensee, developed the finished product. The intellectual property and trade secrets related to their new or upgraded products was thus preserved and retained by the licensee. .

Post 2014, Meshdynamics developed a generic, customizable suite of software modules to accelerate time to market for OEMS requiring wireless connectivity to be baked into their connected devices. The tools include simulation and test automation tools specific to mesh networking and working source code for exemplary board-radio ensembles. Licensing options include:

--  IP License: No source code - OpenWRT code base is not needed by you or your software developers.
--  MeshSuiteTM :OpenWRT source code for mesh enabling new IOT devices and their deployment/operation infrastructure.


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
