Service discovery over mesh networks
- Pragasen Mudali
Many services will potentially be run over a community mesh network, such as internet gateways, e-commerce, audio streaming ,video on demand, voice calls, file sharing, printer sharing etc. A broker mechanism which will be able to find a service over a mesh network will be a valuable feature. It could find an Internet gateway with specific features such as VoIP or find a printing service for someone wishing to print business cards. It can also act as an agent for people wishing to sell and buy goods over the mesh network.
