PocketMesh Product Requirements Document


Product Description
Market Need Everyone is becoming more dependent on the internet every day. We need a reliable device to help people stay safely connected.

The goal is to connect,protect,recharge your digital life.
Key Features/ Functionality This device is multi-role, so it fills more than one need. At it’s simplest, it functions as a personal device connectivity management system, allowing you to control how your personal devices connect to the internet, while firewalling and ad-stripping.
Other Product Compatibility,

Ecosystem, etc. For most of this product’s lifecycle, it is going to function as an internet connectivity management device.
Target User Anyone who wants better control over how they use the internet. Anyone who wants ‘instant network, open box.’

Anyone who wants better control over their mobile data usage and protection against overage charges.
Target Purchaser

(if different from user) First adopters will be technophiles and ‘road warriors’. After that, people who want to control their internet use, people who want a mesh network, FEMA, various government agencies. I hope that the pmesh will become as ubiquitous as the cell phone, over time.
Other Stakeholders People who do things like Burning Man. People who want to have a lan in a temporary space. People who need a network temporarily. People who need to have files with them and present frequently (sales folks /trade shows etc)

Critical BOM Components A raspberry pi, the battery management board, a USB wifi board, and a crypto module.
Communication Requirements Device communicates in 3 ways. Internal (devices slaved to it) sideband (other units in range) and External (Any upstream path to the Net). All 3 types will be 802.11G
Power Requirements 2.5amp 5v micro USB charger, if device is off, can use a weaker charger(will take longer) with a 2.5a charger, device can operate, and be charging at the same time.


Lifetime requirements 3 year life cycle.
Cycles of various sub-systems Batteries should last a year, all other components should operate on a standard 3 year life cycle.
Chemical resistance (sweat, sebum, sunscreen, salt water) Human fluids, salt water, rain, non-abrasive surface cleaners such as Windex, alcohol.
UV resistance (sunlight) Product should be UV resistant, and be able to withstand being left in a car on the dash in summertime in Texas(160F)
Environmental (Dust, Water, etc.) Current CBA suggests best path is IP53 standard.
Mechanical (Drop, Vibration, Abrasion, etc.) A three foot drop onto concrete. For vibration, it should be able to operate while in a moving vehicle.
