Open Garden

Connecting the next five billion mobile devices to the Internet.

Open Garden is a 100% software-based mobile broadband network made of peer-to-peer connections between devices including smartphones, tablets, laptops and wearables. Open Garden leverages the density of these devices to create an OTT network.

Open Garden is available as a free app for Android, Windows and MacOS. With 3M users worldwide, Open Garden is the first successful large implementation of mesh networking technology.

The user benefits are: a faster internet access, stronger coverage, seamless connections and battery usage reduction.

The Open Garden solution is composed of several sophisticated technologies: device discovery, seamless pairing, a proprietary network protocol, distributed algorithms for managing the network, advanced traffic management (multi-hop, real-time automatic path choice, and channel bonding), and battery use reduction and optimization.

The company sells licenses and advanced versions of the software to Device manufacturers, Mobile operators and Corporations.
