 +====== Mesh network ======
 +In the context of [[:content:about]], the "mesh network" consists of all devices communicating via [[MDP]] and/or [[Rhizome]].  This essentially means all devices running the [[Serval DNA]] daemon, which for mobile Android devices means running the [[Serval Mesh]].
 +With enough nodes spaced appropriately and good radio coverage, all nodes on a single continent or island may conceivably be united into a single network, but in practice there will always be many mesh network partitions possibly joined via [[Serval infrastructure]] links through other networks.  Each partition is a set of devices that can reach each other either directly or indirectly via [[MDP]] and/or [[Rhizome]].
