Meshcom MeshDriver 1.0 Released

Wireless Mesh Networking Enabling Software for PCs and Embedded Systems Is Now Available

HELSINKI, FINLAND -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 15, 2007 -- CeBIT 2007, Germany -- Meshcom Technologies, leading provider of wireless mesh networking technology and solutions, today announced the release of its long awaited MeshDriver 1.0 software. Network devices operating with MeshDriver enjoy self-healing, self-configuration, and optimized throughput and performance in fixed and mobile network environments. MeshDriver is initially available for Windows and Linux operating systems, and can be downloaded from the Meshcom website.

Mesh networks utilize many different devices such as laptop computers, Wi-Fi access points and PDA devices. In mesh networks, devices can transfer data between neighboring devices and act as repeaters as well as dynamic routers for traffic -- this is all done automatically. The major benefits for mesh networks are high reliability, scalability and easy to use. MeshDriver 1.0 release features AODV routing, AES data encryption and cross-platform support. It operates at Layer 2.5 which makes it very easy to integrate into any network device and existing networks.

MeshDriver has been developed to work in many different environments where affordable, scalable and reliable network connections are mandatory. MeshDriver can be effectively utilized in home, office and community/public networks, military and rescue operations, and industrial use. "Meshcom's developed solution has infinite possibilities. Meshing saves time, money and extends the reach of wireless connectivity," Ari Paganus, VP Sales & Marketing of Meshcom, says.

Meshcom is now providing commercial licenses for the MeshDriver 1.0 software, initially targeting wireless network device manufacturers and OEMs serving municipal, military, public safety and heavy industry networking markets. "So far mesh networking solutions have been offered only by few selected industry pioneers and start-ups. The solutions provided have been device vendor proprietary, very expensive and suffering from the lack of interoperability. Through our MeshDriver solution, new players can take part in this emerging and rapidly growing business and in the next coming years revolutionize the market," Miska Kaipiainen, CEO and Co-founder of Meshcom, highlights.
