The MeshNet Repeater is designed to enlarge the size of the wireless network and increase the intergity of the wireless transmissions. The MeshNet Repeater provides this capability by continually listening for wireless transmissions from wireless MeshNet sensors and Controllers. When a transmission is received by the Repeater the data is the retransmitted to the Sensor or Controller. In essence a repeater can more than double the wireless networks size through the repeating function and the higher power radio. The Repeaters also provide alternative paths to the Controller and Sensors which allow the self-healing of the wireless network in response to changes in the wireless environment.
Each MeshNet repeater requires a physical connection to the Controller in the initial setup (linking). The linking process allows the repeater and controller to exchange necessary information for joining the unique Wireless network which also enables multiple MeshNet wireless networks to coexist. Repeaters can switch MeshNet wireless networks through repeating the linking process with the new wireless network's controller. The Plug-n-Play linking process is completed by following the simple steps below:
