Khipu Networks has been involved with Rajant wireless since 2006 and has worked on a range of projects with major corporations.
Rajant Corporation was established in October 2001, after founders Robert Schena and Paul Hellhake identified significant shortcomings in traditional wireless mesh networks. The nation had suffered the worst domestic terrorist assault in history, and the two recognised inherent weaknesses in existing mobile voice and data networks used by first responders.
While traditional mesh technology enabled the formation of fixed ‘ad hoc’ communications networks, it did not provide for true mobility, nor did it allow for scalability. The Rajant team envisioned a new, more robust mesh technology that would allow networks to grow stronger as nodes were added, and to be truly mobile – with all nodes and clients able to be in motion, all the time, and all application data able to use the best available frequency.
The proliferation of wireless networks and availability of Wi-Fi leads many of us to take connectivity for granted. Today, nearly everyone has instant access to wireless broadband at work, in the home, and in countless locations in between.
But what about challenging industries and environments such as mining, military, oil and gas, first responders, and telecommunications – where people, vehicles and equipment are typically in motion and when connectivity is a requirement, not an option? Changes in topography, climate, and the state of motion of individual network nodes pose real challenges to reliable broadband connectivity.
In these and other demanding applications, Rajant Corporation’s Kinetic Mesh Networking technology provides proven, reliable meshed wireless broadband networking.
The Rajant Difference
Through the combination of Rajant BreadCrumb® wireless network nodes and InstaMesh® routing software, Kinetic Mesh networks are readily established to support hundreds of moving nodes — without crippling the network with overhead. Unlike traditional mesh technologies, Rajant enables all network nodes to be in motion all the time, all clients to move all the time, and all application data to use any radio necessary to reach its destination – anywhere on the network.
The essence of Kinetic Mesh Networking is motion and flexibility, and Rajant’s BreadCrumb nodes provide a combination of power, portability and rugged construction for a wide range of applications. Leveraging InstaMesh, Rajant BreadCrumb nodes provide continuous and instantaneous routing of wireless and wired connections over the best available frequency. This dynamic frequency utilization capability allows for total network mobility – Kinetic Meshing – as well as robust fault tolerance, high throughput and low latency.
This dynamic, on-the-fly frequency changing enables Rajant networks to adapt to physical surroundings or network availability. These capabilities, coupled with high-level data encryption and mesh-to-mesh authentication, allow for scalable, reliable broadband connectivity that can readily scale to hundreds of devices.
In the most demanding applications, Rajant technology is the proven choice for ultra-resilient, highly scalable easily-deployed networks that are equally adept in both everyday situations and times of crisis. Rajant also provides its technology to service providers and manufacturers who need high-quality network solutions for their customers.
Today, Rajant is gaining recognition as the pioneer of the world’s most reliable, scalable, and readily deployed Kinetic Mesh network technology.
