HELSINKI, FINLAND -- Meshcom, a pioneer in wireless metro Wi-Fi mesh networking technology, today announced the solution for access point vendors to enable mesh networking functionality in their offerings. This solution is based on "Meshcom MeshDriver" software.

MeshDriver software is designed to function as a virtual interface, binding existing networking interfaces and supporting plug-ins for controlling NIC specific functionality. Meshcom is implementing the upcoming 802.11s mesh standard in MeshDriver. In addition to mandatory features dictated by 802.11s specifications, MeshDriver includes several optimized algorithms to push the performance of wireless networking. MeshDriver is compatible with all existing network protocols, applications and services. It can be integrated into all devices to create a future proof platform for next generation wireless mesh connectivity.

The main drivers for WISPs and wireless network operators are coverage, scalability and reliable services with minimal cost. Meshcom mesh networking solution for wireless device manufacturers/vendors delivers an easy, efficient, and effective way to successfully compete in this emerging business space. The technology licenses of MeshDriver are offered in two flavors: binary code license and source code license. Meshcom also provides customer projects to ensure interoperability and parameter optimization.

"No new wires, set-ups and configurations - plug-and-play wireless network - is the market demand, as service providers attempt to increase the number of wireless subscribers, drastically reduce time per installation and additional hardware requirements. Increasing subscriber turn-up rates with the least possible churn ratio is a primary metric for next-generation wireless ISP's and operators." Mr. Dennis A. Guerra, Sales Manager of Meshcom says.
