PacketHop believes that mobile broadband is just a skip and a hop away. The company develops communications software used to implement and manage mobile mesh networks that enable broadband communications. PacketHop's software addresses tasks such as multimedia distribution, video surveillance, data transfer, and systems administration. The company is targeting corporations, public safety and government organizations, and individual consumers. PacketHop's clients have included the Golden Gate Safety Network. The company was originally a spin-off from SRI International, but SRI has since reacquired PacketHop.
