In situations of failure of communication systems or lack of access to telecommunications infrastructure, it is necessary to use alternative solutions. One way is to use vehicles equipped with a variety of data transmission methods. An example of such a vehicle is the Mobile Distribution Point of ICT Infrastructure (MPDIT) which integrates modern and sophisticated ICT solutions. The vehicle is equipped with many different transmitting and receiving devices, however, the range of which is limited. One of the methods of increasing the range and reliability of communication links is the use of MESH networks. MESH nodes are carried by people, they create a dynamic structure, the functioning of which is possible even if some nodes stop working. The paper also presents a way to solve the problem of simultaneously ensuring high network throughput and large ranges by integrating two types of MESH networks.
Mobile Distribution Point of ICT Infrastructure (MPDIT) is an innovative mobile device that integrates modern ICT solutions with advanced hardware architecture with a modular design. The basic function of MPDIT is to effectively increase public safety and counteract and reduce many types of threats, such as natural disasters. The article discusses considered hardware architecture construction solutions for the MPDIT project. It must ensure high reliability of operation in difficult operating conditions, ICT performance in terms of throughput information through a variety of communication channels that cooperate and low latency. Critical is the ability to modify the hardware layer by implementing a modular construction and based solutions based on modern standards and technologies.
