ESP-WIFI-MESH

ESP-WIFI-MESH

ESP-WIFI-MESH is a wireless communication network with nodes organized in a mesh topology using the simultaneous AP-STA feature on Espressif SoCs. It provides a self-forming and self-healing network, with ease of deployment. The network topology of ESP-WIFI-MESH can scale up to 1000 nodes in large areas, without requiring any specific Wi-Fi infrastructure support. ESP-WIFI-MESH can also be used to cover Wi-Fi blind spots in a home-deployment scenarioss where the Wi-Fi signal cannot be reached.

Easy and Secure Setup

We provide ready-to-use, yet customizable, phone apps that facilitate the auto-discovery of new nodes and allow their easy configuration with the Bluetooth LE method. This method ensures that the configuration is pushed securely to the nodes at scale. This enables the ESP-WIFI-MESH administrator to manage node groupings and choose the best routing policy for any given deployment.

Self-forming and Self-healing

In the auto-routing mode, the ESP-WIFI-MESH network gets formed automatically according to the signal strength values of peers seen by the nodes. This mode also facilitates the automatic reconnection between different nodes, whenever a parent node goes off. This offers automatic healing and provides fail-safety within the mesh.

No Extra Gateways Required

Typically other mesh networks require additional mesh infrastructure equipment to cover wider areas. ESP-WIFI-MESH does not require any additional equipment to form a network. It also scales well with a low-capacity Wi-Fi access point, since the access point is completely unaware of the existence of ESP-WIFI-MESH nodes.

IP Connectivity

All the nodes in the ESP Mesh network can get IP connectivity and can communicate both with each other and the external world. The internet access of these nodes is provided through a root node acting either as a NAT or a bridge.

Secure by Design

ESP-WIFI-MESH is based on standard Wi-Fi connectivity and it can use standard WPA2 network security among the mesh nodes to ensure communication security.
