FLUIDMESH NETWORKS, INC.

Fluidmesh Networks is the worldwide leader in wireless systems for security, industrial, and mission-critical applications. Its range of solutions covers point-to-point, point-to-multipoint, and mesh networks with an unparalleled level of reliability, flexibility, and ease of use. The company is focused on the development of top-quality wireless products for security, video-surveillance, condition monitoring and data communication in large areas at risk. Fluidmesh Networks’ target markets are municipalities, industrial plants, schools, seaports and marinas, archaeological sites, resorts, theme parks and racing tracks.

Founded by a team of researchers and engineers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, MA and the Politecnico of Milan in Italy, Fluidmesh Networks serves its customers worldwide from its headquarters in Boston, and from its European office based in Italy. Fluidmesh Research & Development engineers come from the top academic and industrial research institutions worldwide and are active authors in leading publications in the field of networking and wireless transmission. Every Fluidmesh product is embedded with this incredible amount of know-how and innovation, making Fluidmesh the wireless vendor of choice for many system integrators around the globe.

FLUIDMESH PRODUCTS:
Fluidmesh 2200 Duo: The Fluidmesh® 2200 Duo is the only wireless product designed and manufactured specifically for security, video-surveillance and mission-critical condition monitoring applications. The Fluidmesh 2200 Duo is able to transmit the video streams coming from the cameras directly attached to it and to dynamically route data packets coming from other Fluidmesh units through the optimal network path.
The Fluidmesh 2200 Duo features two quadri-band radios with N-Female connectors and can operate at 2.4 GHz, 4.9 GHz and 5.1-5.8 GHz and modulate up to 108 Mbps. The dual-radio configuration can double the available bandwidth and create 100% full-duplex wireless links. Selecting the most appropriate band for each link doesn’t require any hardware changes.
The Fluidmesh 2200 Duo supports the patent-pending FluidMAX™ technology and can be used to create Point-to-Point, Point-to-Multipoint, and Mesh architectures . In developing FluidMAX, Fluidmesh has embraced the WiMax Point-to-Multipoint architecture and enabled its wireless units to operate with a centralized or a distributed Medium Access Control protocol depending on the network layout. The FluidMAX protocol is fully automatic and does not require any set-up by the user. When the network detects that the Fluidmesh 2200 Duo units are set-up in a Wi-Max-style star-based topology, each Fluidmesh unit automatically enables the FluidMAX mode. This feature makes Fluidmesh the only wireless manufacturer in the market with a guaranteed throughput in any network layout.
The Fluidmesh 2200 Duo includes the EasyMesh™ platform. The EasyMesh technology allows the user to set the same range of private IP addresses across the entire network. This automatic tunneling transparently hides the Fluidmesh Layer 3 network to the connected devices allowing the user to set up the system in Layer 2 , reducing configuration and deployment time.
The Fluidmesh 2200 Duo also includes the FMQuadro™ web interface which allows the user to configure, monitor, and troubleshoot the wireless network in real time without the need of an additonal software. The FMQuadro web-based user interface also provides real time throughput analysis and is capable of automatically reporting network congestion scenarios through a fully interactive network monitoring system.

Fluidmesh 1100: The Fluidmesh 1100® is a quadri-band wireless Ethernet product designed and manufactured specifically for security, video-surveillance, and mission-critical condition monitoring applications and it features one quadri-band radio and can operate at 2.4 GHz, 4.9 GHz, and 5.1-5.8 GHz and modulate up to 108 Mbps. The preferred frequency can be easily selected through a web based interface.
The Fluidmesh 1100 is based on the innovative FluidThrottle™ technology which allows the user to limit the total cost of ownership of the wireless network by paying only for the amount of bandwidth required. Additional throughput can be easily achieved by upgrading the system with software plug-ins in case the bandwidth requirements increase over time. This solution makes Fluidmesh the most cost-effective and flexible wireless solution provider in the market.

It also includes the FMQuadro™ web interface which allows the user to configure, monitor, and troubleshoot the wireless network in real time without the need of additional software.

Fluidmesh 2200 Endo: The Fluidmesh® 2200 Endo is a dual-radio wireless product. It is designed to be embedded in custom-made, outdoor enclosures for special applications such as public-safety or industrial monitoring in classified areas. The Fluidmesh 2200 Endo uses the same hardware and software of the Fluidmesh 2200 Duo, but is encased in a much smaller form factor. It is designed and manufactured specifically for security, video-surveillance, and mission-critical condition monitoring applications. The Fluidmesh 2200 Endo series can transmit the video streams coming from the cameras directly attached to it and dynamically route data packets coming from other Fluidmesh units through the optimal network path.


Fluidmesh Networks is a "Tier One" supplier of wireless networks for ESS.
