THE RIGHTMESH VISION


We believe in the right to connectivity. A connected world is a better world. When you give people the ability to connect—to the world, to each other, across the street, or around the world—the world becomes a more intimate place where anything is possible.

We believe in the rights of an individual. A person has the right to privacy, security, freedom of expression, and freedom of association. When you empower a person with the ability to earn, contribute, own property, and generate value, the Community benefits.

We believe in doing the right thing. Basic human decency appears not to be so basic anymore. Just because we believe in the rights of the individual, doesn’t mean we don’t have a responsibility to care for and protect each other and the planet. There are things we all share: humanity, the air, the environment, knowledge, ideas. If we take care of these not-so-little things, we are all better for it.

We believe we are fortunate to live in a world where technology can enable and protect these rights. As such, it is our responsibility to create an ecosystem that connects the world, empowers a new generation of digital entrepreneurs, and allows the unconnected to access content and information that improves their life outcomes and makes the world a better place for all.

We believe these things are right. We are RightMesh™.


RIGHTMESH OVERVIEW


We have created a protocol and platform for connecting users in an ad hoc wireless mesh network, and in so doing, we are enabling new connectivity options and improved outcomes to billions of unconnected users around the world.

Core to the network is an Ethereum account and identity layer that uniquely identifies every mesh node. In an off-the-grid mesh world, when linking multiple hotspots and networks together, traditional identity methods (IP addresses) will not work adequately. The Network’s approach to mesh participation and activation solves this problem. We believe when you combine blockchain-based technologies, token incentivization, and wireless mesh networks—you unleash the potential of technology and economic network effects and make a lasting difference on the world around you.

We call this RightMesh.

With RightMesh, the devices people already carry around every day form the infrastructure. This is a software-based solution running as a background process on a device that will achieve distributed decentralization that will only continue to strengthen with network density. The key principle is that the RightMesh network is self-forming, self-healing, and self-regulating, using whatever it has at its disposal. It runs on devices most of the world already uses and can easily afford. No additional hardware or infrastructure is required, and no longer will people be beholden to ISPs.

As both a platform and a network, RightMesh enables developers to retrofit existing mobile applications or build new, decentralized mesh applications. RightMesh also intends to introduce a RightMesh utility token, or MESH (alternatively Mesh Token and/or Mesh Coin), that participants in the ecosystem will use to facilitate the purchase and sale of goods and services.

One example of such a transaction would be an application that empowers a RightMesh user to sell excess Internet capacity, giving those who do not have access to this utility the ability to connect to other meshes (today) or consume general Internet traffic (soon). There will soon be more than 6 billion smartphones on the planet and 20 billion IoT devices, a lot of which will have underutilized connectivity, storage, and processing capabilities. This is the sharing economy, and just as companies have shared their homes (Airbnb) and automobiles (Uber and Lyft), RightMesh will empower users to take control of their device and extract its intrinsic, already-invested value.

Another example might be a user who creates a digital good (i.e., music, video, apps, magic swords, or photos) and transmits this to another user for an exchange of MESH tokens. We live in a world that is becoming increasingly digitized, and thus, the concept of work and value creation has changed. A user with a connected smartphone can transact and produce value that is useful to a person or machine on the other side of the planet.

RightMesh believes that this ecosystem will create a new generation of digital entrepreneurs, while helping emerging economies access content and information that improves their life outcomes.

WHAT IS A MOBILE MESH NETWORK?


From Wikipedia (and written by Dr. Jason Ernst, RightMesh’s Chief Networking Scientist):

“A wireless mesh network (WMN) is a communications network made up of radio nodes organized in a mesh topology. It is also a form of wireless ad hoc network… a decentralized type of wireless network. The network is ad hoc because it does not rely on a pre-existing infrastructure, such as routers in wired networks or access points in managed (infrastructure) wireless networks. Instead, each node participates in routing by forwarding data for other nodes, so the determination of which nodes forward data is made dynamically on the basis of network connectivity and the routing algorithm in use.”

“The coverage area of the radio nodes working as a single network is sometimes called a mesh cloud. Access to this mesh cloud is dependent on the radio nodes working in harmony with each other to create a radio network. A mesh network is reliable and offers redundancy. When one node can no longer operate, the rest of the nodes can still communicate with each other, directly or through one or more intermediate nodes. Wireless mesh networks can self form and self heal. Wireless mesh networks work with different wireless technologies including 802.11, 802.15, 802.16, cellular technologies, and need not be restricted to any one technology or protocol.”

Whereas most traditional mesh networks rely on broadcasting and/or hardware solutions, RightMesh has developed algorithms that seek out the most efficient way for the data to travel from point-to-point, and do so while running as a background service on any non-rooted Android smartphone and on many Java-enabled devices (e.g., IoT devices and PCs). Customizations open the door for modifications according to user preferences and token incentives.

With every node acting as a transmitter and receiver this makes mesh networks decentralized as nodes can connect directly to each other rather than going through an ISP. This creates huge potential for users that have under-utilized bandwidth (excess data) to monetize their device, essentially becoming their own ISP. Think of it as an Airbnb for data and on-device resources. Participants may configure and allocate how they want to use and exchange surplus bandwidth.

HOW IS MESH NETWORKING USEFUL?


This technology has traditionally been used to improve the quality of LANs in large buildings or in poor conditions and has been reserved for military and enterprise applications, often through expensive hardware solutions. Bringing this technology to everyone has many ways it can benefit society by helping people stay connected when existing centralised infrastructure fails.

One of the big flaws with the current centralised networking infrastructure is that two people standing next to each other would have to send data to a third party, that is potentially miles away even on other continents and through an assortment of middlemen, prior to the data being  sent to the recipient. This is not only inefficient but it poses a security risk as it can facilitate third party data extraction.

Centralised servers can also get overwhelmed and fail. Most people experience difficulty connecting and using the internet at a crowded event, such as a baseball game, when sending basic text messaging. Larger multimedia is most assuredly not an option. Simple actions with your mobile device during such events can be quite slow to complete, and occasionally, messages never reach their intended recipient.

Internet connectivity is also at risk during disasters. For instance, during Hurricane Sandy in 2012 an estimated 25 percent of users in New York City lost some form of connectivity, which lasted weeks in certain instances. Major providers, including Verizon and Google, experienced outages, and there were reports that some cell towers relied on generators to maintain operations. Emergencies are exactly the time we need Internet access the most to coordinate rescue efforts and make the more efficient - mesh technology can save lives.

However, the biggest potential for RightMesh (and mesh networking in general) is in emerging markets where the cost of connectivity and the current network infrastructure cannot keep up with demand. There are nearly 4 billion people who do not have connectivity today, and each of these people are being left behind.

WHAT MAKES RIGHTMESH GREAT?


INTELLIGENT

RightMesh networks are self-forming, self-monitoring and self-healing without user intervention, utilizing Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi Direct connections between devices and can operate without rooting the phone. This means that it is a software-based solution that can spread freely without investing billions in new infrastructure.

The RightMesh switching technology allow phones to automatically switch between hotspot and client modes in order to detect others in the mesh. When a client and hotspot node find each other, they will form a new mesh for people to join and share, and it grows from there!


POWERFUL

RightMesh can be used for much more than just text messaging. High-bandwidth connections between nodes allow for media rich content to be transferred over high speeds across a RightMesh network.

Data can also travel quickly over multiple hops. If a node 'hears' more than one hotspot in client mode, it rapidly switches between them and acts as a router. This switching happens rapidly and we have been able to achieve multiple Mbps over multiple hops. Over the years, this number can be theoretically be much faster as well and the system has been architected to get better and better in time. This eliminates dropped connections and greatly improves sharing of content for not just text, but all types of media.


RELIABLE

Data can be sent reliably over multiple hops and multiple paths to the destination, ensuring no loss in critical data. Unlike conventional mesh networks that broadcast messages on a best-effort basis, RightMesh will always select the most efficient route first, and if that fails, choose the next best path. The route self heals if interrupted.

Nodes who have Internet connectivity can also be used to empower other nodes in the network. If a node has Internet connectivity, they'll have the option to 'volunteer' their bandwidth into the network. This can be done through their cellular data, or the device may rapidly switch from the RightMesh network to the Internet similar to routing nodes. We believe entire economies will form around these new data sellers. While general purpose Internet traffic is not yet available, this is on the roadmap.


THE ADVANTAGE

Imagine a world where connectivity to each other just exists because you have a smart device. There will soon be 6 billion smartphones on the planet, each one is capable of amazing things. We will be making the software development kit freely available for developers around the world to start building mesh-enabled applications -- local apps, in local languages, addressing local and global problems.

With every app built with the RightMesh service (and integrating RightMesh into existing or new applications can be done with just a few lines of code), the strength of the network builds That’s the advantage of RightMesh.
