Serval Mesh is an Android app that provides voice calls, text messaging and file sharing between mobile phones using WiFi, without the need for a SIM or any other infrastructure like mobile cell towers, WiFi hotspots or Internet access.
- Serval Mesh – download and install, user documentation, versions, reporting bugs
- Instructions for developing Serval Mesh – information for developers
- Supported Devices – supported Android phones and devices
The main technologies offered by Serval Mesh (app for Android) are:
Serval Mesh Extender (Formerly Mesh Helper)
- powered by any external USB power source (5V 500mA)
- Mesh Extenders mesh together over short distances using Ad Hoc Wi-Fi, over longer distances using packet radio on the ISM 915 MHz band
- provides a standard Wi-Fi Access Point for nearby devices (such as smart phones) that do not support Ad Hoc Wi-Fi mode
- provides a platform for future Serval Project initiatives, such as the commoditisation of many classes of medical monitoring devices.
