Rajant ’ s Kinetic Mesh
While many networking providers may claim to have the level of mobility and autonomy in their technology , some still fall short . Rajant ’ s Kinetic Mesh provides wireless reliability inside with built-in redundancy for network stability , high bandwidth for video and highspeed sensor data , enhanced M2M communications and extended Wi-Fi range . Packets will always have a path home with improved reliability and security , even in challenging environments . With Rajant Kinetic Mesh , operations become smarter , more autonomous and mobile . This self-healing network can be implemented to support M2M communications between equipment on the move and enable autonomous operations .
Rajant BreadCrumb nodes can hold multiple connections over multiple frequencies simultaneously and work peer-to-peer to form robust and redundant links between warehouse assets that may be stationary or on the move . The wireless mesh network delivers fully mobile , scalable , high-capacity M2M connectivity systems needed to run seamlessly 24 / 7 , 365 days a year . These compact , lightweight nodes can be easily deployed on both fixed and moving assets . Connectivity can be achieved around obstructions . The nodes can be placed directly onto equipment , robots and devices to operate easily in the hardest-to-network areas without adding significant infrastructure .
Rajant InstaMesh smart networking software orchestrates traffic among these meshed connections , dynamically selecting the fastest path for delivery . If a path becomes blocked or interference is sensed , InstaMesh will automatically route traffic via the next available pathway , maintaining mission-critical connectivity and ensuring that communications do not wane . It overcomes traditional wireless challenges by providing coverage , resiliency and mobility .
The tools to thrive
The appropriate mesh network is critical for warehouse managers who want confidence in there being no gaps in data collection . By accessing and using the data being transferred between devices in real-time , warehouses can make informed decisions about their operations to maximise their productivity gains . The continuous mobile connectivity can also be used for telemetry to monitor equipment health on-demand and in real-time . Predictive maintenance can enable longer life cycles of machines and less expenditure on repairs or replacements .
With more significant insights into the status and performance of personnel and machines throughout the warehouse , operators can reduce the risk of disruptions , downtime and human danger . M2M communication powered by an intelligent and selfoptimising mesh network can transform the modern warehouse operation .
