Claim of US Patent No. 10,924,343

12. A method comprising:receiving, by a first mesh node configured as a dependent mesh node in a mesh network and having a first number of peer mesh nodes, a first message from a second mesh node configured as a master mesh node for a first communication channel in the mesh network, the first message comprising a first identifier of the second mesh node and information about a second number of peer mesh nodes associated with the second mesh node;
determining that the second number of peer mesh nodes is one of (i) less than or (ii) equal to the first number of peer mesh nodes associated; and
in response to the second number of peer mesh nodes being less than the first number of peer mesh nodes, configuring the first mesh node as the master mesh node for the first communication channel in the mesh network.
