Customers use TropOS broadband mesh routers and MicrOS client nodes from ABB to build highly resilient, high capacity wireless networks for aggregating multiple, mission-critical applications covering broad geographic areas.
All TropOS mesh routers run TropOS Mesh OS, the key to delivering high reliability, performance and scalability. It is the industry's only mesh routing software that dynamically selects end-to-end paths through the mesh network based on maximizing end-to-end throughput and minimizing latency. TropOS Mesh OS leverages each mesh router's on-board intelligence to minimize network congestion and adapt power and data rate on a real-time, packet-by-packet basis.
Different TropOS and MicrOS models are optimized for different applications. The product lines can be broken down as follows:
