Esp-mdf - cross platform mesh with esp32 and esp8266

Postby Koulwa » Sun Apr 29, 2018 4:07 am

Hello,

As the mesh has been implemented on the esp8266, and the mesh example and the esp-mdf on the esp32 is starting to get published and worked on a bit more I was looking around and couldn’t get a concrete answer.

Will the esp-mdf mesh support inter meshing between the esp32 and the esp8266? Obviously the future Bluetooth gateways wouldn’t be supported on the esp8266, but everything in a hardware sense would be fine. Just wondering if there is some documentation, announcements, or someone from espressif that can confirm what would be technically possible to be automatically supported by the mesh.

Also, the mesh support numbers are confusing. How many nodes can be on the network?

-The landing page for mesh says 32(connections) x 6(layers) = 192 (right?)
https://www.espressif.com/en/products/s ... h/overview

-the examples menuconfig says Max of 300
“The number of devices over the network(max: 300).”
https://github.com/espressif/esp-idf/bl ... .projbuild

-somewhere I found in the docs say thousands
(Can’t find that source right now will update)

What’s supported?

Looks like the new website makes it more clear about the number of devices:

any one at espressif? ESP32 cross mesh with ESP8266?

Would be super nice.

From what I know, the meshes are not compatible. I'm not entirely sure if we have plans to make them compatible, or port one mesh to the other SoC.
