Built into every CodeB Node the CodeB Mesh Network is a side channel network in which nodes communicate with each other in a point-to-point fashion, rather than communicating with each other via a centralized access point such as in a star topology.
Infrastructure nodes connect directly, dynamically and non-hierarchically to as many other nodes as possible and cooperate with one another to efficiently route data from/to nodes and clients. This lack of dependency on one node allows for every node to participate in the relay of information. The ability to self-configure enables dynamic distribution of workloads, particularly in the event a few nodes should fail. This in turn contributes to fault-tolerance and reduced maintenance costs.
The major benefits of or mesh network can be summarized as:
- removal of central points of failure
- robust, self healing, and resilient
- nodes on the network can re-route traffic thus allowing for many nodes to be connected in a wide area
- removal of central authority over the network
- stronger resilience and faster speeds the more nodes join the network
