Meshdynamics
Meshdynamics Company Information  
Unique Value Propositions 

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 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.

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.  Contact Us

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

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  Modular MeshTM  
Other potential licensees include members of Industrial Internet Consortium, see: IIC-Reston-Presentation

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. Exemplary source code for 80211.ac radios provided with customization support for licensee-specific radios, protocols and specialized use cases. Patents  Docket List

 
Meshdynamics Licensing Options

Post 2014, we shifted our emphasis to providing IP licensing for OEMs and their system integrators. More
- 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 Software and IP Licensing options are:

1. IP License:  No source code -  OpenWRT code base is not needed by OEM or their system integrator.   . 
2. MeshSuiteTM : OpenWRT based wireless routers and app framework code base.  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.”
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, a  finalist for 2014 Dr. Dobbs Jolt Award.
