Wifi technology that saves lives

Our mission is to empower humanitarian organisations during crisis events to setup communication infrastructure in minutes instead of days or weeks and help save more lives by doing so.

Endurance and versatility

Rugged, Reliable, Simple

MeshPoint is built to withstand exposure to different weather conditions without damage. It represents truly invincible device with innovative design and utmost performance.

MeshPoint is a compact and rugged autonomous device. Besides being designed to sustain extreme environmental conditions, it rapidly provides reliable Internet access for up to 450 simultaneous users per device: ten times more than most regular wifi routers.

And the best thing is you don’t have to be a networking engineer to set it up. Simple plug and play will do.

Wide range of applications

Meshpoint is simple and easy to use and quick to set up, which makes it perfect for:

  • rapid deployment of Internet hotspots and wireless mesh networking infrastructure in crisis situations (earthquakes, floods, refugee and migration crisis, etc.),
  • fast and easy deployment of Internet hotspots for different rescue services and similar public services,
  • providing instant Internet access and wireless networking in extreme outdoor conditions,
  • ast and simple deployment of pop-up Internet hotspots for indoor and outdoor social events (conferences, festivals, etc.),   
  • deployment of flexible wireless and mesh networks on construction sites,
  • deployment of mobile Internet hotspots in public transportation,
  • and many more.

Traction and media coverage

It was difficult to choose from the excellent shortlist, but we’re delighted that MeshPoint was chosen as the winner.

The product should be designed and tailored specifically to meet your user’s needs, and not just because you want to ‘do digital’. Take MeshPoint, a project set up with the help of Techfugees (currently in a late piloting stage) to provide a mobile Wi-Fi point to refugees.

He’s now working on a compact, durable router called MeshPoint, which will use open-source software to give hundreds of people internet access at once.

Faced with a refugee crisis in the digital age, this startup is bringing an internet lifeline to refugees and migrants in need.

Humanitarian origins

MeshPoint was born during the Syrian refugee crisis when thousands of refugees were passing through Eastern Croatia. Transit camps were in need of reliable Internet hotspots that are quick to set up and easy to manage. We decided to help. Our wish was to enable refugees to get in touch with their loved ones as well as to find and acquire much needed information and to help aid workers, response teams and volunteers with coordinating their actions and managing the crisis situation.

We are still leading the effort to provide Internet and networking to refugees and aid workers in two reception centres for asylum-seekers and refugees in Croatia, and our prototypes are built and deployed in order to provide networking infrastructure throughout this humanitarian crisis.

We were featured on ABC, Mashable, Wired and many other media outlets.

Would you like help those in need?

Connect many. Everywhere.

MeshPoint is more than just a crisis device. Its simplicity and convenience of use makes it perfect for any type of social event, both outdoor or indoor.

Set up Internet connection for thousands of people in matter of seconds. Set it and forget it.

Our Partners and Clients

We thank our partners for collaboration and support

In collaboration with Croatian Red Cross and International Organisation for Migration we have employed 2 MeshPoint devices in asylum-seeker centers in Kutina, Croatia and Zagreb, Croatia.

Thanks to the support of the city of Osijek, Croatia we are also conducting a pilot in which we employed 12 MeshPoint devices to cover one whole block thus creating a network infrastructure for the whole neighbourhood and providing its inhabitants access to Internet.
