Extend Wi-Fi Networks with Self-Optimizing Osmosis Mesh Technology

Osmosis Mesh: Revolutionizing Enterprise Wi-Fi


Providing reliable Wi-Fi coverage in sprawling facilities, campuses, and public spaces has long challenged network professionals. Running cable to dozens of access points is expensive and time-consuming. Even then, there are often areas the network can't reach. Without a high-performance wireless network, operations and customer experience suffer.


Wind Talker Innovations has developed a compelling new approach to these challenges. Osmosis is a wireless mesh networking solution that eliminates the need to cable every access point. Osmosis nodes automatically discover each other and form a self-configuring, self-optimizing, and self-healing wireless mesh network. With Osmosis, you can rapidly extend Wi-Fi to the farthest reaches of your campus or facilities without significant construction.


Extensible and Scalable Architecture 


When you power up a new Osmosis node, it automatically discovers other nodes. It incorporates itself into a mesh because we designed Osmosis for seamless extensibility. There's no need to configure routes, channels, or IP addresses manually. The Osmosis autonomous services dynamically optimize the mesh topology for performance and resiliency.


This self-optimizing architecture enables Osmosis networks to scale far beyond traditional Wi-Fi deployments. While most mesh systems are limited to one or two hops, Osmosis enables the creation of multi-hop networks that span vast areas. Deploy nodes on light poles to cover an outdoor campus or mount them throughout a large factory. There's no practical limit to how far you can extend coverage by adding nodes.


Wired Infrastructure Cost Savings


By creating multi-hop mesh networks, Osmosis eliminates the need to run Ethernet cabling to each access point. An Osmosis node only needs a power connection provided by standard power cabling. This reduces installation time and labor costs by as much as 50% compared to traditional wireless deployments.

The nearly cable-free architecture is especially valuable for outdoor wireless mesh networks and deployments in leased or historic buildings, where extensive construction would be cost-prohibitive or prohibited. Even indoors, Osmosis minimizes disruption to operations by nearly eliminating the need for invasive cable runs.


Rapid Deployment and Configuration


With Osmosis, a network can be installed and operational in hours instead of days or weeks. After mounting the Osmosis nodes and connecting them to power, the mesh network assembles itself. The nodes discover each other, negotiate IP addresses, configure wireless channels, and establish the optimal topology to route traffic.


For connecting client devices, Osmosis nodes incorporate an intelligent DHCP server that provides addresses on wired and wireless interfaces. All Osmosis APs are centrally managed via our cloud management interface. Set your security posture, network SSIDs and passwords, and access policies via a web dashboard. Changes automatically propagate throughout the mesh.



Resilient and Self-Healing Operation


Osmosis's self-organizing nature is designed to maintain a robust network in the face of disruptions and changing conditions. Redundant wireless links between nodes eliminate single points of failure. The mesh automatically routes traffic around the failure if a node goes down or a link degrades. 


The Osmosis protocol optimizes radio parameters to adapt to environmental interference or changes. Osmosis nodes work cooperatively to form an intelligent distributed antenna system that maximizes coverage and capacity. The result is a network that can meet the demands of mission-critical applications. 


Cloud-Based Management and Monitoring


For administrators, Osmosis provides a centralized cloud management platform that simplifies operations. An intuitive web dashboard provides at-a-glance visibility of network status and performance. View the mesh topology, utilization levels, and connected clients across all locations. 


Customizable alerts proactively warn of any degradation in network health. Automated diagnostic and forensic tools rapidly identify the root causes of problems to accelerate resolution times. With the Osmosis Cloud Manager, a lean IT team can efficiently manage a distributed network infrastructure.


Competitive Differentiation


Osmosis's network architecture innovations provide compelling advantages for systems integrators and managed service providers looking to streamline wireless deployments. Osmosis allows providers to complete more jobs and reduce labor costs by reducing cabling requirements and installation times. The self-optimizing performance and resiliency of Osmosis networks mean providers can deliver a premium service level agreement to their customers.


Osmosis networks are proven in some of the most challenging environments, from sprawling campuses to bustling ports and military facilities. Osmosis helps you win bids by making the business case for robust wireless as compelling as the technical case. Instead of risky and costly construction, your proposals will show how to do more for less. By reducing the specialized labor required to deploy and run the network, Osmosis improves the scalability and margin of your services business.
