Serval Mesh is an Android app that provides highly secure mesh networking, voice calls, text messaging and file sharing between mobile phones using Wi-Fi, without the need for a SIM or any other infrastructure like mobile cell towers, Wi-Fi hotspots or Internet access.
Serval Chat is an iOS app that provides highly secure text messaging between Apple iPhone and iPad devices using Apple's proprietary peer-to-peer wireless network.
Serval Maps is an Android app that uses Serval Mesh to provide collaborative, infrastructure-independent, geographical mapping.
The Serval Mesh Extender is a hardware device that helps other devices to join and participate in a Serval Mesh network.
The Second-Generation Mesh Extenders are the current generation of Mesh Extender hardware, and continue to be under active development.
The earlier phase of development was based around TP-Link MR3020 wireless routers, and is now fully deprecated. For people wanting to build a Mesh Extender compatible device, they should refer to the second-generation Mesh Extender documentation above, as it is possible to build a compatible device using a GL-INET AR150 wireless router, which is superior in all ways to the TP-LINK MR3020, not the least being that the GL-INET devices have an open boot-loader, a proper header for the onboard UART, four times the flash, and twice the RAM.
