By utilizing mesh networking technology we are able to create an interconnected network of multiple smart devices without the need for traditional cell towers, data plans or ISPs. Each device that connects to the Mesh will do so using Bluetooth (or WiFi if available) and each device will act as a ‘mini cell tower’ or repeater which just extends the range of the network.
For example, picture a train with 6 carriages and each carriage contains 1 BlockMesh user. User 1 wants to send a message to User 6. The message (data) that User 1 sends to User 6 will be passed on through each other device (2,3,4,5) on the network (all data is encrypted) until it reaches the recipient in carriage 6.
With layers of smartphone mesh networks and Special Mesh Networking Wi-Fi routers great distances can be achieved . Future development will bring cell phone covers that double as a backup battery and Wi-Fi extender of 1.5km. We have partnered with the leading company in this field namely Serval.
We have also recently announced our patented smartphone MeshCover which will extend cover up to 15 km.
