MeshCentral is an experimental service from Intel Software and Services Group. The service concept is the brainchild of the brilliant researcher Ylian Saint-Hilaire. I joined with Yllian early this year as the business guy to bring MESHCentral technologies to market. In a nutshell, MeshCentral is a very simple concept of allowing easier/scalable (P2P) ways to connect edge nodes (PC, embedded CE, routers, etc..) to Cloud Services that allow secure discovery with the ability to send authorized events and deliver secure control messages.


Above is the current architecture. Currently, we have an experimental service launched that anybody can sign up for and start creating their own private meshed nodes. We support Sleep & Wake-on LAN, Computer Monitoring, Computer Management, Managing from Browser, Smartphones including JavaScript based remote shells and video. On the Cloud services side, we have done OpenID and OAuth integration allowing Google/Yahoo SSO and Twitter updates for nodes..

There is great podcast that Ylian recently did with IT Conversations. It lays out some of our vision and plans for the future. Check it out at - -

Stay tuned .. more information on MESH at and GitHub.
