Enterprise Backhauling
The demand for bandwidth over IP networks is increasing every day as each data, voice and video stream is sent over the same shared IP infrastructure. At the same time broadband connectivity becomes more critical every day as more processes in every organization require network connectivity to move forward.

Companies, Universities, Hospitals, Local Governments, Industrial Sites, Hotels, Resorts whose premises span large areas and whose building are located sometimes several miles apart require to have a reliable broadband carrier-grade infrastructure that connects all the buildings together for voice, video and data applications 24/7. Fluidmesh carrier-grade wireless broadband solution is the most cost effective way to connect multiple buildings and locations together providing broadband connections with no need of trenching and wiring.


Industrial and SCADA Applications
Fluidmesh Networks has developed an innovative and industrial-grade wireless Ethernet solution for large industrial plants seeking mission-critical condition monitoring, security and automation. Capitalizing on the strength of wireless mesh architecture, Fluidmesh technology creates a completely wireless infrastructure enabling the simultaneous streaming of data, video, and voice. Fluidmesh wireless infrastructure is fully IP and Ethernet compatible. Consequently, it can interconnect multi-vendor devices, sensors, security, and control equipment in large, hard to wire sites such as oil refineries, industrial seaports, tank farms, gas plants, power plants, and water treatment facilities.


Video Surveillance
Deploying Video-Surveillance systems is often considered a costly and time consuming process due to the difficulty of installing the wired infrastructure to bring the video back to the recording location. The Prodigy protocol together with our multi-topology technology makes Fluidmesh the ideal solution to deploy surveillance cameras in a cost effective manner without having to sacrifice on image quality or frames per second. The Prodigy protocol supports MJPEG, MPEG4 and H.264compression and can stream video from any IP or analog camera without any reduction in quality. The robustness of theFluidmesh solution also makes it compatible to support megapixel cameras as well as multi service networks supporting applications such as emergency phones, access control, remote cctv monitoring, and VOIP.

The self-healing capabilities of our networks also allow for temporary deployments of video surveillance systems. This is particularly useful in public safety applications where an additional eye on the street might be needed for a limited amount of time. Think about that special event you have coming into town. Think about that concert that happens every year. Think about that unexpected strike in front of a major corporation. We can help you keeping an eye on it.


Military and Government
Communication is often at the core of many military and government operations. By providing a secure, reliable, and easy to deploy wireless infrastructure, Fluidmesh is the solution of choice for many military forces andgovernment bodies around the world. Our solutions are often used in hostage situations, war zones, and borders to provide a wireless network your mission can depend on. The flexibility and self-healing capabilities of our mesh technology make our solution easy to deploy and modify in the field as soon as the conditions change. In addition, by providing AES 128-bit encryption on top of our proprietary Prodigy protocol with authenticated routing, you will be able to create an infrastructure which is virtually impossible to hack into.

Another unique advantage of Fluidmesh products is the low power consumption. This is particularly important in remote locations where power is not readily available and alternative solutions such as batteries, solar panels, or wind generators need to be used. It is almost too good to be true.


Fluidmesh MITO Series
The Fluidmesh® MITO Series is a MIMO-based tri-band wireless Ethernet product line designed and manufactured specifically for multi-service backhaul applications.


MITO – The Revolution in Wireless Backhauling
With the MITO product line, Fluidmesh has developed a revolutionary wireless backhaul solution that is capable of offering extreme performances with a small form factor. MITO is a unique 2x2 MIMO solution with integrated directional antennas which has allowed Fluidmesh to break the mold and create a product line that is a game changer in the wireless backhauling arena. You won’t need to install external antennas. You won’t need to deal with coaxial cables, lighting suppressors, and grounding. The Fluidmesh 1100 MITO and the Fluidmesh 3100 MITO have an integrated radio-antenna solution with an outdoor rated enclosure that is slightly bigger than two decks of cards. The Fluidmesh 1100 MITO mounts a 2x2 MIMO patch antenna and can be used to create point to point, point to multipoint, and mesh networks providing great unparalleled performances and a compact form factor. The Fluidmesh 3100 MITO mounts a 2x2 MIMO sector antenna and is designed for medium and large point to multipoint deployments with up to 150 clients.


Tri-band Radio operating at 4.9 GHz, and 5.1-5.8 GHz
The Fluidmesh MITO Series features one tri-band radio and can operate at 4.9 GHz, and 5.1-5.8 GHz and modulate up to 300 Mbps. The preferred frequency can be easily selected through a web based interface.


Optimized Prodigy Transmission Protocol for maximum Reliability 
The Fluidmesh MITO Series employs Prodigy, Fluidmesh's proprietary high performance ‘intelligent’ transmission protocol, built to overcome the limits of standard license-free protocols and to deliver a wireless infrastructure with a higher level of reliability. Prodigy was developed to transmit any IP-compatible traffic including data, video, and voice. At the base of our innovative transmission protocol, there is a traffic optimization algorithm that allows every Fluidmesh device to assign a specific level of priority and reliability to every packet transmitted. This process allows the wireless network to automatically adjust its transmission parameters based on the type of traffic transmitted. The overall result is a better, more reliable, multi-service wireless infrastructure.


Compact Design for Easy Installation
The Fluidmesh MITO Series is a compact unit designed for low visual impact deployments. The integrated panel antenna makes for easy installation and supports a range of up to 30 miles in line of sight. The provided low-power POE injector guarantees a straight-forward set-up.


The Fluidmesh MITO Series is based on the innovative FluidThrottle™ technology which allows the user to limit the total cost of ownership of the wireless network by paying only for the amount of bandwidth required. Additional throughput can be easily achieved by upgrading the system with software plug-ins in case the bandwidth requirements increase over time. This solution makes Fluidmesh the most cost-effective and flexible wireless solution provider in the market.


The Fluidmesh MITO Series supports the patent-pending FluidMAX™ technology and can be used to create Point-to-Point, Point-to-Multipoint, and Mesh architectures. Thanks to FluidMAX™, the Fluidmesh MITO Series products can operate with a centralized medium access control protocol, or with a distributed medium access control protocol, depending on the network layout. That means that our units can operate in either CSMA or TDMA. The decision is made automatically by the network based on its layout and requires no user intervention.


EasyMesh Platform and FMQuadro Interface
The Fluidmesh MITO Series includes the EasyMesh™ platform. The EasyMesh technology allows the user to set the same range of private IP addresses across the entire network.

The Fluidmesh MITO Series also includes the FMQuadro™ web interface which allows the user to configure, monitor, and troubleshoot the wireless network in real time without the need of additional software or a server. The unit comes with a built-in spectrum analyzer, a real-time bandwidth monitoring tool, and a wizard to facilitate the configuration of the system.


AES-128 Encryption Support (FIPS-197 Compliant)
The Fluidmesh MITO Series includes support for 128 bit AES Encryption at the link-level which can be used for FIPS-197 compliance. Because AES is implemented in hardware, there is no loss in terms of performance when AES is enabled.


Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Support
The Fluidmesh MITO Series supports SNMP version 3. The Simple Network Management Protocol allows the user to centrally manage the mesh devices with a SNMP server and to receive automatic alarms in case of network failure.
