Huninn Mesh Networks™, a provider of a wireless fabric for the Internet-of-Things, has broken the multi-hop limit with a chain of 100 battery-powered sensors stretching over 4 miles and was progressing to its target of 1,000 hops over 20 square miles.
Until now the industry has believed that mesh networks cannot operate at high densities or with many hops, a constraint widely known as the ‘multi-hop’ or ‘N2 problem’ of mesh networks. A Huninn Mesh™, with its patent pending breakthroughs in wireless communications for devices, does not suffer from this constraint.
The result involves an agricultural site where sensors that measure humidity, air temperature and air pressure are placed at 50-yard intervals, and spread along fence lines to cover an area. There are no central towers, no concentrating routers, and the network is coordinated and controlled from a cloud-based management system. The entire network operates as a ‘software defined network’ or SDN...
