Application of Emergency Wireless Networking

Emergency wireless networking represents a set of civic/military applications where the network infrastructure cannot be pre-planned. Examples exist in battlefields, public safety, and earthquake/tsunami relief among others. Despite the lack of any network infrastructure in those applications, high performance and secure wireless communications among a large number of users (terminals) are usually required. In addition, the communication terminals are usually of high mobility.

Because of scalability constraints and the fact that wireless communication quality degrades quickly with the number of wireless hops, currently in-use wireless networks do not support such communications adequately. OMESH’s solution for emergency wireless networking possesses the unique value of providing a fluid mesh network with a large number of dynamic users (terminals) of high mobility. It further supports reliable data/voice/video communications, and establishes instantaneous connection among the users without any pre-configuration.More details…
