Title (EN) MESH NETWORK CONTROL USING COMMON DESIGNATION WAKE-UP
(FR) COMMANDE DE RÉSEAU MAILLÉ UTILISANT UN RÉVEIL DE DÉSIGNATION COMMUN
Abstract:
(EN) Each of a plurality of network nodes in an ad hoc mesh network utilizes a data communication device that includes a two-way communications component, comprising a first receiver and transmitter, and a second receiver. The second receiver activates the communications component from a dormant state when it receives a broadcast including a wake -up identifier of the communication device. A method of activating and deactivating a mesh network includes, first, transmitting a broadcast that includes a wake -up identifier such that each second receiver of each communication device identified by the wake -up identifier, upon receipt, activates the communications component of the communication device, which then engages in mesh networking communications, and, second, transmitting a second broadcast including a second identifier such that the communications component of each communication device identified by the second identifier, upon receipt, will cease its mesh networking communications and will return to the dormant state.
(FR) Chaque nœud d'une pluralité de nœuds de réseau dans un réseau maillé ad hoc utilise un dispositif de communication de données qui comprend un composant de communication bidirectionnel, comprenant des premiers récepteur et émetteur, et un second récepteur. Le second récepteur active le composant de communication à partir d'un état latent lorsqu'il reçoit une diffusion comprenant un identifiant de réveil du dispositif de communication. Un procédé d'activation et de désactivation d'un réseau maillé comprend, en premier lieu, la transmission d'une diffusion qui comprend un identifiant de réveil de sorte que chaque second récepteur de chaque dispositif de communication identifié par l'identifiant de réveil, à réception, active le composant de communication du dispositif de communication, qui entame une communication de réseau maillé, et, en second lieu, la transmission d'une seconde diffusion comprenant un second identifiant de sorte que le composant de communication de chaque dispositif de communication identifié par le second identifiant, à réception, cesse sa communication de réseau maillé et revienne à l'état latent.
