Highly adaptable wireless mesh network solution

September 2019 Products, IT infrastructure, Residential Estate (Industry)

We are always chasing network speed and capacity. To keep up with the ever-expanding bandwidth requirements of IoT devices, you need a network that can expand and adapt easily. Rajant’s Living Network offers scalable bandwidth solutions that grow as your connectivity requirements do to ensure that these increasing demands don’t outpace the network’s capacity.

Through its patented Kinetic Mesh network, Rajant enables agile and adaptable wireless mesh networks and a broadband solution for today’s diverse, universally mobile environments. Using a combination of BreadCrumb wireless network nodes and InstaMesh networking software, Rajant networks employ any-node to any-node capabilities to route data through the best available traffic path and frequency for any number of nodes. Rajant BreadCrumbs can communicate with any Wi-Fi or Ethernet-connected device to deliver low-latency, high-throughput data, voice and video applications across the self-healing mesh network.

Kinetic Mesh networks work autonomously to provide the best possible connection for an organisation’s dynamic environment of fixed and mobile assets to deliver robust applications in real time. Every node can act independently and with full routing capabilities, making it a true peer-to-peer network that is completely mobile-enabled.

With no single point of failure and self-healing capabilities, these networks guarantee the uptime of mission-critical applications. They make use of all installed radios to dynamically route wireless and wired connections over the best available links. Nodes also self-configure for easy spin-out. Born from military and mining applications, Kinetic Mesh networks are proven to withstand the harshest conditions and support AES-CCMP and TKIP encryption with configurable per-hop, per-packet authentication.

“This combination of technical functionality helps organisations across industries improve operational effectiveness, enhance quality of service, drive productivity and generate increased ROI (return on investment),” says Teresa Huysamen, wireless business unit manager at Duxbury Networking. “But to truly deliver on the promise of ‘everywhere connectivity’, your applications need a network that can readily adapt to constant change… a Living Network that moves with your operations.”

Today’s municipal networks must support a broadening range of personal, business, and government applications, all of which are becoming more mobile. The number of Internet-connected devices already exceeds 17 billion worldwide, with smart cities usage expected to grow even further in the coming years. Information sharing between police departments allows for as much as a 25% reduction in crime rate, while the installation of city-wide sensors has helped cities cut energy costs by a similar percentage. Rajant’s scalable mesh network seamlessly integrates with existing communications infrastructure to support highly varied users and needs.

The software applications that come as part of Rajant’s mesh solutions help operators configure, monitor, and control network activity from intuitive point-and-click interfaces. These network management packages allow administrators to gain global, proactive control of network performance and easily scale to meet changing demands.

Rajant’s ‘Make-Make-Make-Never-Break’ method of forming connections means that no connections must be broken for new ones to be made. Each multi-radio BreadCrumb wireless node in the network can be fixed or mobile, and maintain multiple connections at once – this offers built-in redundancy for excellent resilience. The InstaMesh software automatically coordinates traffic via the best possible pathways to deliver your information without any delay.
