Fluidmesh, a leader in mission-critical wireless connectivity to large sites and in challenging environments, will bring its technology to the Volvo Ocean Race and its 12 host cities around the world.
Fluidmesh Networks was founded in 2005 by a team of researchers and visionaries from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the Politecnico of Milan.
Fluidmesh technology will be used to reliably deliver fiber-like performance via unlicensed wireless spectrum – providing connectivity for mission-critical video, voice, and data, a critical need for the Volvo Ocean Race.
Fluidmesh mesh radios will be used to create a backbone mesh network between vessels and the shore and across the Race Villages during the In-Port races covering an area up to 10 square nautical miles.
Fluidmesh Networks is an MIT spin-off that develops innovative wireless technology that is a critical enabler of the "Internet of Things." We manufacture radios, and focus on delivering connectivity solutions in some of the most challenging environments in the world. Fluidmesh Networks is a critical element in the adoption of automation in industries such as security, entertainment, mining, rail, ports and terminal operations, material handling, robotics, and the military. Fluidmesh' technology is used by government agencies, Fortune 500 companies and global conglomerates to maintain cutting edge operations and a competitive advantage.
