The last few months were fascinating for our Telemesh project. Please click on the link below to catch up the previous updates of our project:
Now that you know a few works of Telemesh let’s have a look at the journey of it in the 3rd quarter.
We prioritize working on the Multiverse for “Remote Mesh” connectivity in this month. Multiverse server allows the remote mesh to connect the fastest possible way. We also worked on enabling the token to work offline payment system to Buy and Sell data. Internet data purchasing is done through a smart contract and recorded in the Ethereum blockchain. We used Micro-Raiden for off-line side-chain transactions. In this way, a Buyer can purchase data from a Seller in the same mesh network to do online communication. A seller must have an active mobile internet connection where a buyer has no internet or data connection.
The following video illustrates the overall process in Remote Mesh:
Here is a demonstration for the telemesh application in use:
We chose two mobile internet-enabled devices- BD seller from a local mesh network and USA seller from the remote mesh network. As you can see in the video, the two systems discover each other through a multiverse server (which is our remote mesh node). They can find the nearby local users from the discovery list and message each other. The USA buyer from a remote location sends a message to the BD seller after successful data purchasing.
Later this month, we worked on defining network data indicators and in designing the Dashboard MVP. It is an interface for the vendor or third-party content providers. We planned for the web interface that directly communicates with the multiverse system/server. It allows the following activities:
- Network growth visualization.
- How much active the network is.
- Lifetime token transaction.
- The amount of internet bandwidth shared so far.
- Maximum or growing internet sharing node/area.
- Broadcast message to the particular mesh
- Message schedule.
From the telemesh dashboard, a message can be composed and broadcast to selected mesh networks. The text delivered through our broadcast system to all targeted mesh users. This dashboard provides field managers or branch offices an interface to relay important messages to the distant field. The core feature includes:
- Broadcast/multicast message interfaces.
- Aid workers profile.
- Situation reports/alerts.
- Message scheduling.
The multiverse server and dashboard platform using Docker and Jenkins for continuous integration and deployment.
Lastly, we launched the Telemesh website this month. It includes all of our details and updates starting from our inception, the journey, and the overall news. It has been made to keep people updated about our upcoming and on-going works.
We utilized this month for internal tests to check the functionality, stability, and integration of Blockchain components. Our Telemesh project got well recognized over countries as a smarter mode of connectivity. To ensure the best and accurate application, our team worked hard on developing and pilot testing of Telemesh under the Kotti Test Net.
Get a flashback on the Telemesh Updates of this month which has previously been updated here: Telemesh Update
This month, part of our team participated in the world’s renowned accelerator program Cohort II of Ethereum Classic Labs (ETC). The tech-savvy team of W3 Engineers, Mr. Sabbir Ahmed (The Chief Technology Officer), and Mr. Saiful Hoque (the Product Manager) participated in the program with the innovative connectivity & messaging solution application, Telemesh.
On September 26, 2019, the Telemesh team had a successful meeting with the UNICEF Khulna team at the Unicef Field Office, Khulna. The journey of our telemesh piloting just got started by conducting that meeting. We successfully demonstrated its autonomous peer discovery & mesh formation with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, or Wi-Fi Direct, and Multi-hop 1 to 1 message.
The team continuing optimizing these technical aspects of the project:
- Autonomous peer discovery & mesh formation (Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi direct)
- Unique node identification
- Multi-hop 1 to 1 messaging
- In mesh message broadcasting
- Buy-Sell data & crypto wallet
- In-app distribution
Here, Autonomous peer discovery from one node to 13 nodes of Wi-Fi Direct has built several Multi-hop one-to-one messages. The picture is self-explanatory and includes BLE Direct, Wi-Fi Mesh, Internet Direct, Internet Mesh, Connected Link, disconnected Link. Please observe the small color-explanatory box for a better understanding of the scenario.
We have received some excellent responses this month in our Pilot-Initiative from the UNICEF-Khulna team. We are happy to announce that Md. Nahid Mahmud, the In-Charge of UNICEF-Khulna office, hosted the meeting with the Telemesh team. Besides, the meeting was lead by our Team Lead, Mr. Anjan Debnath.
The participants’ list of both parties are as follows:
- Anjan Debnath
- Md. Moniruzzaman
- Arman Ali
- Ahmed Mohammad Ullah
- Md. Nahid Mahmud
- S.M. Nazmul Ahsan
- Umme Halima
- Mohammad Tanvirul Islam
- Sufia Akhter
Little could we do for them and little is what they need! We created the Telemesh to connect the unnoticed and unconnected 3.5 billion people. Hence, now we are on the verge of making it successful with our first piloting.
Congratulations to the team on the first Pilot initiative under UNICEF Innovation Fund!
