Re: "controlling software in the cloud"

The particularly 'clever' mesh networking products need quite a lot of computing power to work out the optimum arrangement of backhauls and client channels, which is why several of them offload the calculations to 'the cloud' (ie 'someone else's servers'). The little ARM chips these things tend to run on just don't have the power.
