Generating new revenue streams, operating more efficiently, and getting back to work safely in the new normal.

FREMONT, CA: Wyld Networks launched a new mobile mesh networking tech and content delivery platform Wyld Mesh and Fusion. Wyld Mesh and Fusion benefit the businesses looking for innovative ways to generate much-needed revenue streams, operate more efficiently, get back to work safely, and monitors social distancing practices. The platform harnesses peoples’ mobile devices without depending on connections to cellular or WiFi networks. Data finds the fastest and easiest route by hopping from smartphone to smartphone or IoT device to quickly and reliably deliver notifications and rich multimedia content.

Combined with the Wyld Fusion content platform and its rich geolocation capabilities and advanced data analytics, the new mesh communication solution can provide relevant content to the right people at the right time and place through branded mobile applications.

Wyld Mesh and Fusion have been formulated for consumer and enterprise networks at major sporting events, music festivals, retail, and throughout transport hubs. The technology allows the delivery of relevant content and location-aware marketing in time to better the customer experience, generate additional revenues, and enhance customer loyalty and engagement.

For businesses that want to return to work safely, innovative technology can also be utilized to create virtual geozones to manage access to sites, buildings, and restricted areas and then deliver location-aware messaging and safety information. Social distancing monitoring can be implemented by creating a personal one or two-meter dynamic geozones around individual staff, visitors, and customers. This offers an accurate picture of how social distancing is being practiced, helping to manage better building layouts, room occupancy, and workflow schedules. Subject to corporate policy and privacy, the employers would also have the ability to instantly alert others who have been in close contact with anyone tested positive for COVID-19. The company is already working with NHS Highlands and Highland Health Ventures to deploy the technology in various care homes.

“By connecting smartphones directly together as well as IoT devices in a mesh network, we have created a new low-cost additional layer of robust wireless connectivity,” says Alastair Williamson, CEO of Wyld Networks, a portfolio company of Tern plc. “Leveraging the resilient nature of the mesh network, our content delivery platform and accurate location capabilities, our solution has far ranging applications in multiple sectors.”

Wyld mesh technology links smartphones directly to smartphones using the device-to-device capability of P2P WiFi and Bluetooth built into Android and iPhones. Powered by an app on a smartphone, devices connect in multiple paths and form a meshed multihop communication network that grows more substantial and robust as more people join the network and self-heals as someone leaves the network. Wyld Fusion, a multi-tenant integration and content curation platform allows the rapid creation of new services, integration into third-party systems. It delivers the location-aware content into the mesh network.
