Hype is a cross-platform communications framework that supports multiple types of transport, such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, or the Internet. The framework optimizes delivery by fragmenting messages into multiple segments and distributes them through all available transports simultaneously – called transport multiplexing – using a probabilistic distribution algorithm that bases its decisions on real-time network profiling metrics. Connected devices form an ad hoc network that allows messages to hop from device to device – known as mesh networking – further enhancing range and deliverability. All data is securely encrypted, guarded from eavesdropping, even when hopping between other Hype devices. All this complexity is hidden behind an abstraction layer that provides developers a simple and easy to use API, while only requiring minimal setup.
