What is Mesh network?

What is flood type mesh?

EXBeacon adopts a “flood type mesh network” and builds a stable large-scale network with Bluetooth LE. Instead of deciding the data path in advance, a message can be sent like flood, and it will easily extend to thousands of nodes. Even in the a situation where radio signals are interrupted, redundancy can be secured via other nodes without complicated route recalculation. It is easy to manage, and it’s peculiarity is the degree of freedom in it’s deployment.

EXBeacon and flood type mesh

To realize this, we need a fresh design to control the transmission of the entire network. By adopting packet hop count control, relay control, reception control with RSSI value, packet reduction by compression, parameter optimization technology, EXBeacon realizes various solutions on a flood mesh network.
