Introducing Telemesh

TelemeshTM is an Open source, Blockchain & Mesh networking based solution to create connectivity for unconnected people.

Telemesh autonomously discovers and builds multi-hop, peer-to-peer mesh networks using simple low-end smartphones. With Telemesh, users can communicate even without an Internet connection or cellular network coverage.

Telemesh also provides the ability for remote users to connect through the Internet while offering on-demand internet connectivity to nearby users. An Ethereum-based crypto-economic model incentivizes users to share their internet data in exchange for digital payment. Telemesh dashboard helps vendors to broadcast useful content or emergency alarms to remote mesh networks.


Telemesh Ecosystem


The Network

Telemesh provides the backbone to build decentralized mesh networks using handheld mobile devices, gateways to connect remote networks, while facilitating offline/online transactions in a trustworthy, fast, and easy-to-use way.

The Communicator

An Android app is the heart of Telemesh. Users can discover other Telemesh users nearby and communicate with them without any SIM or cellular network. Users can also message remote users if someone is willing to sell their Internet connectivity.
network power

The Network Power

Every user’s phone can be uniquely identified by an Ethereum-based ID. Users can use Telemesh to pay other Internet users for access to their connectivity. The embedded crypto wallet provides anyone with an Android smartphone with a gateway to financial inclusion and security.
network monitor

The Network Monitor

The Telemesh Dashboard is a space for vendors, healthcare workers, NGOs, and officials to observe network data, status, and trends. It also provides an easy way to quickly disseminate emergency alerts, news, and other critical announcements, to specific mesh users.
