The RE-Mote automatically creates a self-healing wireless mesh network, addressable over IPv6 on top of 6LoWPAN. This allows to connect to traditional IP-based networks over TCP/UDP, like other WiFi or Ethernet connected device would do, consuming from 60-300 times less power than any WiFi device.
One benefit of being an IPv6 capable device is to be able to use protocols such as CoAP, LWM2Mand MQTT, the very protocols nowadays used for most Internet of Things Cloud-based applications. IPv6 addresses gives devices a global unique address, allowing to use
pings to check if your device is online, run a
webserver on the RE-Mote and read data from any web browser, and more.
The mesh extends the range by allowing devices to help each other by relaying each other’s messages. This also ensures reliability as if one known route disappears, a given RE-Mote can find a new route and heal the network, no need to manually configure static routes.
