See how Rajant’s extended range network supports smart indoor industrial applications in warehouses, manufacturing, indoor farming, fulfillment centers, and more. Overcoming the connectivity challenges of Wi-Fi is what we do to maximize operational efficiency
Rajant’s multi-frequency BreadCrumbs® can hold and maintain multiple connections simultaneously given an array of radio options that allow for simultaneous data routing. Rajant BreadCrumb radio nodes work peer-to-peer to form robust and redundant links between indoor assets. In turn, the network delivers fully mobile, rapidly scalable, high-capacity M2M connectivity that systems need to operate efficiently and run 24/7.

Ensure Indoor-Wide, Extended Range Coverage
Gone are the days of static operations and fixed networking infrastructure. Today, remotely guided and autonomous indoor industrial machinery demands ‘never-break’ wireless communications, but metal shelving and equipment can block RF signals and cause automated systems to grind to a halt. Rajant BreadCrumbs, which can hold many connections over multiple frequencies simultaneously, can be easily placed where needed to work around obstructions. These compact, lightweight nodes can even be deployed on robots, equipment, and personnel working between the racks to readily extend coverage in the hardest-to-network areas.
Instead of piggybacking off fixed infrastructure, BreadCrumb-equipped machines and people can communicate directly. Even in the most challenging environments of extreme temperatures, RF congestion, and physical obstacles, Rajant is the only wireless mesh network to enable M2M data, voice, and video communications, providing a robust solution to connect your warehouse assets, everywhere they roam, using minimal infrastructure.
Automate Dangerous, Difficult, or Repetitive Processes
Indoor industrial operations can be hazardous to personnel if not performed to standards. Manual processes also create the risk of human error – which could result in costly inventory loss or worse, putting workers in unsafe predicaments. Kinetic Mesh provides continuous connectivity for modernized applications that allow operators to keep personnel out of danger areas, augment worker productivity through automation, and optimize the accuracy of repetitive, high-volume tasks.
This includes enabling automated guided vehicles and autonomous robots; automated inventory identification, data capture and sortation, and remote operation of storage, retrieval, and material handling systems to keep workers off the floor themselves. The continuous mobile connectivity provided by the wireless Rajant network can also be used for telemetry to monitor equipment health dynamically and for real-time video to monitor worker safety.
With proactive insight into the status and performance of personnel and machines throughout the indoor environment, operators can minimize disruptions, downtime, and danger.
