To track down his location, Bernard has a solution: “I’ll need to hardline into the host mesh network,” he tells her, explaining that the hosts are subconsciously linked to other hosts in close proximity; this way, they can bounce information between one another and avoid stumbling into narratives not their own, which keeps the guest experience running smoothly.
Think about every time you’ve tried to access Wi-Fi in your house, or a friend’s house, or some Wi-Fi supported public space, and found yourself in a dead zone. Frustrating, right? That's where mesh networking comes in handy -- a fancypants term for an otherwise simple fix to an irritating problem. In a nutshell, a mesh network is a series of routers, aka nodes or connection points, peppered throughout a space where each of those routers "talks" to the others, ultimately expanding the range of Wi-Fi coverage within that space. Suddenly, all those pesky dead zones are no longer dead. Mesh networks, of course, are really only worth setting up in a large space, like a museum, or an office, or -- drumroll -- an Old West theme park built on an island.
