Mesh without hassle

The SkyPilot system enables customers to quickly and easily deploy, configure and manage a mesh, point-to-multipoint or point-to-point wireless network and is comprised of cost-effective and scalable infrastructure and subscriber hardware and EMS software.

By combining these technologies, SkyPilot operates at a higher output power than other solutions, delivering greater range and interference mitigation.
