Self-Healing Networks

July 23, 2010

This sounds cool (my emphasis):

Mesh-Networking is where we efficiently distribute fewer internet connections, and in the scaled-up sharing, actually achieve higher speeds. Also, if one router/node goes down, the rest of the network will re-route to maintain a strong mesh. It is self healing. By all the nodes talking to each-other, we get a ‘cloud’ of coverage; so you can talk over VoIP in the street, check the news for free at transit stations, etc. We can build off of cable, DSL, fiber, etc. We’re finding for example that in some highly populated areas, that a cable or ADSL connection slows down a lot in the evening or right before work. Because our network combines all kinds of internet connections, we aren’t as subject to those slow downs.
