Does Smart Compass use Mesh Networking?

“Mesh” describes a type of topography used by some networks. In other words, mesh describes the manner networked devices (called nodes) communicate amongst one another. In most contemporary topologies, all nodes will connect to some central point or points which direct traffic to and from nodes. Alternately, in a mesh network nodes communicate directly with each other - in some cases only directly, and in others through other nodes. A Smart Compass network is the former, employing a topology called a fully connected mesh network. No traffic is passed through nodes to reach their endpoint, and every single device communicates with all other devices in its pairing group directly peer-to-peer.
