Wyld Networks has launched Wyld Mesh and Fusion, a new mobile mesh and content delivery technology to provide businesses with a unique platform to enhance operational efficiency, engage employees and help them get back to work safely.
Wyld mesh networking harnesses the power of peoples’ mobile devices by connecting smartphones directly to other smartphones and IoT devices without the need for cellular 4G/5G or Wi-Fi.
Combined with Wyld’s Fusion cloud-streaming platform, a company can create infrastructure-lite wireless networks to engage with employees with real-time, location-aware content delivery, messaging and notifications. Data simply finds the quickest and easiest route by hopping between phones, powered by a company branded app.
Social distancing monitoring can be implemented by creating personal one or two metre dynamic geozones around employees and visitors.
This provides an accurate picture of how social distancing is being practiced, allowing for better planning of office layouts and workflow schedules. Subject to corporate policy and privacy, employers could also quickly alert others who have been in close contact with anyone tested positive for COVID-19.
The innovative technology can also integrate IoT devices such as smart sanitisers and business access control systems into the mesh network, all powered by a company branded app.
“Our mesh technology was designed originally for applications such as major sporting events, retail centres and transport hubs to share personalised, location-aware information,” said Alastair Williamson, CEO of Wyld Networks, a portfolio company of Tern plc.
“But with the outbreak of COVID-19, it quickly became clear that it could also play a vital role in helping businesses back to work safely to re-boot the economy.”
