Wireless Mesh Gets IP-Based Networks Capability

Virtual Extension has announced the compatibility of Diversity Path Mesh to the IP networks environment. Users of the company's VEmesh products can now benefit from both the TCP/IP protocol for back office and the Diversity Path Mesh de-facto standard for high-performance Mesh Wireless Networks for the communication with the smart meters or networks. The TCP/IP compatibility is offered as an option in the Gateways of VEmesh networks, the other elements of the wireless network being standard VEmesh nodes.

VEmesh Gateways with the TCP/IP interface have an RJ45 connector fit to standard Ethernet networks. With the addition of the TCP/IP interface option, Virtual Extension offers smart meter and sensor manufacturers and system integrators a rich set of standard interfaces, which also includes Modbus, USB, UART and RS485. VEmesh has been built to provide OEMs with license-free RF communications in difficult environments and over long distances.

Virtual Extension's Diversity Path Mesh synchronised flooding technology is said to ensure that each transmission is optimally relayed by the nodes surrounding it. Instead of investing in computing and network resources to select the best radio path and then instruct specific nodes, the network benefits from the space diversity of a multitude of propagation paths, eliminating the need to route and manage and increasing the robustness and range of the network. VEmesh is sold in chip, customised module and standard module formats.
