Flexibility is a key factor in the successful deployment of a wireless solution. Fluidmesh products facilitate this task by being the only solution in the market supporting Point-to-Point, Point-to-Multipoint, Mesh, and Mixed architectures with the same hardware. This is achieved by using FluidMAX™, a patent-pending technology that allows any of our wireless products to operate with a centralized medium access control protocol, or with a distributed medium access control protocol, depending on the network layout. That means that our units can operate in either CSMA or TDMA. The decision is made automatically by the network based on its layout and requires no user intervention.
FluidMAX™ solves the hidden terminal issue which is a common problem in the deployment of outdoor wireless networks and one of the main causes of network performance degradation. The throughput available on each link can now be easily calculated during the design phase of the network leading to a no-surprise solution once the network is deployed in the field. A higher predictability means a shorter deployment time, a satisfied customer, and a higher ROI on the deployment.
Moreover, FluidMAX™ allows you to create a network with multiple architectures. You can mix mesh, point-to-multipoint, and point-to-point topologies creating a single mixed infrastructure for maximum performances and simplicity. This is also a great advantage in case you decide to modify the topology of your system or to expand your wireless infrastructure. Each Fluidmesh device can operate in any of the three topologies right out of the box and at no additional cost.
Life is short. We like to keep it simple.
