Geo-Replicator® Replication in Ad-Hoc Mesh Networks
In locally synchronising data between mobile assets, ad-hoc mesh networks involving multiple point-to-point links between nodes become necessary to enable timely propagation of changes to data.
The characteristics of, and requirements for replication over, such networks will be:
- Short-range links, not involving connectivity outside of a local group of nodes
- Low bandwidth, potentially unreliable links, whose up-time cannot be guaranteed and are likely to come and go, especially in military scenarios
- Links potentially intermittent (hence particular nodes may prove uncontactable for arbitrary periods), and nodes themselves may cease to be operational for periods of time, potentially forever
- Some links may have different bandwidth and reliability/intermittence characteristics to others (e.g. – consider a fleet of ships with command ships and more mobile pickets, or aerial assets which may roam significant distances from the ‘hub’ of the fleet).
