NYC Mesh is a mesh network.
To understand a bit more about our Mesh network design concepts, please see Mesh Design

For more information on our networking concepts at a high level, please see:

We use the following routing protocols:

  • BGP: Hub-to-Hub, some Rooftops, and to the Internet
  • OSPF: Hubs to Rooftops, Rooftops to Rooftops, and in some VPNs
  • BMX6: Older Openwrt Nodes (c. 2015), (Write-up pending)

You can connect to the network through:

  • A wireless connection to an existing hub or node. See Nodes or the Map to locate one near you.
  • VPN to the Mesh. See VPN
