How RightMesh Works

Smartphones form the network. RMESH tokens power growth.

RightMesh forms mobile mesh networks by establishing and managing device-to-device connections between Android phones or IoT devices. Connections are formed through the technologies inherent to the device such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and Wi-Fi Direct. Once a device connects to a mesh network, it can send data in one of two ways:

  1. Data can be sent in a single hop directly from one device to another.
  2. Data can be delivered in a multi-hop manner, with data being transferred through many devices until it reaches its endpoint. This method facilitates offline message delivery over greater distances.

RightMesh uses a direct routing algorithm based on ideal path routing to make sure data delivery is resource efficient. Every RightMesh enabled device has an Ethereum ID and account that provides a unique identity to other users to allow for offline routing. Our patented technology for switching and peer discovery ensures data integrity.

Devices in the mesh can buy and sell data/ internet using RMESH tokens. Intermediary devices are incentivized to forward data with the RMESH helping the network continue to grow and coverage to expand.

How Data Flows Today

When we use apps like Whatsapp or Facebook, the typical data path is through a centralized server, through expensive infrastructure that is prone to surveillance, authoritarian interference, data breaches by hackers, and data loss by service providers.

The traditional data path follows the diagram to the right:

1. Data travels from the sender to the base station/ cell tower of a regional Internet Service Provider (like AT&T, Bell, Jio or Vodafone).

2. Then… through multiple routers to the internet backbone (fibre lines, undersea cables, etc).

3. Then… to a cloud server (like AWS or Google Cloud).

4. Then… sometimes it is also detours to a company or government servers first. Data is being intercepted or breached.

5. Then… the receiver’s location is looked up and the data travels down the same route all the way back.

Even if the sender and receiver are sitting beside each other, the data travels through the same route twice. That is a long and complicated journey to travel one metre! iIf a person doesn’t have internet access or network coverage, they cannot send or receive a message at all.

How Data Flows Today

There is an energy cost required to transmit data in this manner. There is the initial energy required to transmit data from a device to the network, the cost of transmitting through each section of the internet, the cost of electricity to run all the switches, and the cost of the servers required.

How Data Flows with RightMesh - Local Connectivity

In contrast to typical infrastructures, RightMesh allows data to flow directly, peer-to-peer, between smartphones and IoT devices, without the use of infrastructure. RightMesh enables phones to autonomously discover each other and form a multi-hop, multi-path mobile mesh network.

The local RightMesh data path follows the image to the right.

  1. Data travels from phone to phone to phone (single hop or multi-hop) using the technology already inherent in the phones (Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct and Bluetooth) until it reaches the intended receiver.
  2. And… no internet connection is needed.

This data flow is more energy efficient, saves money, and lowers the chance of data being intercepted or breached compared to a centralized solution which most apps use today.

How Data Flows with RightMesh - Global Connectivity

Local meshes are dependant on their geography and can exist completely offline, but this doesn’t mean that they must. Multiple geographically separated local meshes can be linked through an internet connection, thus forming one large global mesh and providing global connectivity.

Global meshes are formed by:

  1. Data travels from phone to phone to phone (single hop or multi-hop) to reach a phone that has internet access (data seller).
  2. Then… the data travels through the internet to a Superpeer which locates the receiver in another other local mesh and routes the data to the phone - if it has internet access.
  3. Or… if the intended receiver does not have internet access, the Superpeer routes the data to a phone in the receiver’s local mesh that has internet access. The data then travels offline from phone to phone to phone (single hop or multi-hop) to reach the intended recipient.

If just one smartphone in a local mesh has an internet connection, it can share that connectivity with other nodes in the local mesh, linking geographically separate local meshes, and thus providing global connectivity for RightMesh enabled applications.

How Data Flows Today

Data is meant to go to the centralized servers because there is financial incentive for the service operators. When we use apps like Whatsapp or Facebook, the data flows through an expensive infrastructure and is prone to surveillance, authoritarian interference, data breaches by hackers, and data loss by service providers.

1. Data travels from the sender to the base station/cell tower of a regional Internet Service Provider (like AT&T, Bell, Jio or Vodafone).

2. Then… through multiple routers to the internet backbone (fibre lines, undersea cables, etc).

3. Then… to a cloud server (like AWS or Google Cloud).

4. Then… sometimes it also detours to a company or government servers first. Data is being intercepted or breached.

5. Then… the receiver’s location is looked up and the data travels down the same route back.

The same route is taken twice even if the sender and receiver are right next to each other in the same room! Without unlimited data plans, the data must be paid for twice: once by the sender and once by the receiver. And, if a person doesn’t have internet access, they cannot send or receive a message at all!

It also utilizes much more energy for data to flow as it is today. There is energy required to transmit data from your device into the network (cellular or Wi-Fi). Then there is cost of transmitting on each hop through the internet, the cost of electricity to run all of the switches and the cost of the servers.

How Data Flows with RightMesh… Local Connectivity

With RightMesh, messages flow directly, peer-to-peer between smartphones, without expensive infrastructure. RightMesh enables phones to autonomously discover each other and form a multi-hop, multi-path mobile mesh network

Global Connectvity

Local meshes can exist totally offline, but this doesn’t mean that they must. It is possible to link multiple geographically separated local mesh thus forming one large global mesh and providing global connectivity.

1. Data travels from phone to phone to phone (single hop or multi-hop) to reach a phone that has internet access (internet selling node).

2. Then… through the internet to a Superpeer which locates the receiver in the other local mesh and routes that data to that phone - if it has internet access.

3. Or… if the intended receiver does not have internet access, the Superpeer routes the data to a phone that does have access, in that same local mesh, and the data travels from phone to phone to phone (single hop or multi-hop) to reach the intended receiver.

If just one smartphone in a local mesh has an internet connection, it can share that with other nodes in the local mesh, linking geographically separated local meshes, thus providing global connectivity for RightMesh enabled applications.
