SmartMesh IP Functional Overview

SmartMesh IP Functiona Overview

A SmartMesh IP network consists of a highly scalable self-forming multi-hop mesh of nodes, known as motes, which collect and relay data, and a network manager that monitors and manages network performance and security, and exchanges data with a host application.

SmartMesh IP Motes

SmartMesh IP Mote Integration

SmartMesh IP Motes are the wireless nodes in a SmartMesh IP network. They connect to sensors/actuators, route data from other motes, and remain low power.

Each node can both send and receive messages (bidirectional data). Each SmartMesh IP node may have a different data reporting rate and the network will automatically coordinate individual pair-wise communications to efficiently route the traffic.

Each node may have different power supply capabilities (e.g. line-, battery-, or energy- harvested power). The network will use power aware routing to load balance traffic accordingly.

With SmartMesh IP motes, the wireless networking software is fully compiled and tested. SmartMesh IP motes have on-board an ARM Cortex-M3 processor that supports customer application software using the SmartMesh IP On-Chip Software Developer Kit. Alternatively, a SmartMesh IP mote may be controlled by an external microprocessor through its serial API interface.

SmartMesh IP Network Managers

SmartMesh IP Network Managers

SmartMesh IP network managers perform two major functions for the mesh network. First they serve as an access point mote, connecting the wireless mesh to control applications. Second, network managers run sophisticated network management algorithms to maintain performance of the network


SmartMesh IP EManager

SmartMesh IP EManager

An EManager, or embedded manager, runs as a Manager-on-Chip™ where both the access point function and the network management algorithms run on board the SmartMesh IP manager node (e.g. LTC5800-IPM)

EManagers support up to 100 motes in the network and are ideal for low power gateway operation.
