Namla – The ultimate Swarm Intelligence solution for Low Power networks

At HEXio, we take pride in our groundbreaking invention, Namla Tech, a technology that revolutionizes the way mobile ad-hoc networks operate, especially in ultra-low power embedded systems. Our journey began in 2009, with a focus on developing networks that are not only dynamic and self-healing but also energy-efficient.

Namla Tech offers several advantages:

The processing power required to solve routing problems is distributed across the network, rather than concentrated in a single node.

Adding more nodes to the network enhances its processing power and bandwidth, instead of just increasing the load.

The decision-making process is simplified, as each node only needs to compute the next hop, leaving the rest of the route to be determined by subsequent nodes.

Our inspiration came from the natural world, specifically the behavior of ants. By studying an ant colony, we discovered a unique distributed self-healing mechanism that allows for the efficient finding of the shortest path between two points. This mechanism is distinct because it stores data about the network in the environment, rather than in traditional node tables.

The challenge was to create a self-healing network that consumes ultra-low power, particularly for Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) devices. Existing solutions were either limited in network topology or lacked the ability to connect devices to the Internet on a large scale without compromising power efficiency.

Our solution, Namla Tech, is inspired by ant swarm behavior. It eliminates the need for table-based routing, instead of distributing network information among the nodes. This approach ensures that the network remains robust even if individual nodes fail. The routing information is stored efficiently, with detailed information about neighboring nodes and minimal information about distant ones. This method prevents data size from ballooning with network expansion.

At HEXio, we are proud to be at the forefront of networking technology with Namla Tech. Our invention not only addresses the challenges of existing network topologies but also paves the way for more efficient and scalable wireless communication systems.
