Open Garden Mesh Networking

Open Garden’s technology creates a software-based network, also known as a peer-to-peer wireless mesh network, among participating mobile devices using WiFi, Bluetooth LE, and other technologies.

Open Garden’s innovations include: seamless device discovery and pairing, offline identity, a proprietary network protocol for addressing and routing messages off-the-grid, distributed algorithms for managing mesh networks, advanced traffic management (multi-hop, store and forward), and battery use reduction.
