The Make-Make-Make-Never-Break Difference with Kinetic Mesh

No matter the industry sector, every organization today requires a network that delivers real-time information reliably—anytime, anywhere.

Rajant’s Kinetic Mesh® is the only private wireless solution that can offer the level of mission-critical performance that modern, mobile operations demand.

That’s because Rajant’s multi-function BreadCrumb® nodes don’t hand-off like traditional wireless networks. Instead, our “make-make-make-never break” method of forming connections allow our proprietary protocol to switch instantly from one connection to another based on connection performance.

Here’s how it works.

In a Kinetic Mesh network, all nodes are equal AND can make multiple connections simultaneously. A mobile or fixed node can direct traffic to any other node via multiple paths to ensure that you get vital information fast.

Our patented InstaMesh® networking protocol orchestrates this traffic by always using the best path for each packet between network endpoints. With InstaMesh, each node can maintain multiple peer connections simultaneously, making new connections whenever a peer comes into range and retaining each as long as it is potentially useful to the mesh. If one path becomes degraded or blocked, the network will automatically redirect traffic to the best connection. As a result, connectivity remains continuous for reliable, real-time data delivery at low latency—even as the network grows.

Kinetic Mesh networks consistently outperform the competition in mission- critical scenarios due to their ability to make intelligent, autonomous routing decisions that result in a higher level of reliability—especially where mobility is required.

Take for example police responding to an automobile accident. With a properly designed Rajant network, dispatchers have visibility to the accident in real time. Police and EMTs have real-time mobile access to voice, video, and data to help coordinate first responder efforts while in transit—and can stream live video from the scene to required medical personnel.

By comparison, when mobility demands are high, traditional Wi-Fi and mesh networks often fall short.

These networks typically employ “break-before-make” or “make-before-break” approaches to connectivity. In traditional “break” architectures, mobile nodes can only ‘talk’ to infrastructure nodes—not each other—via a single connection.

When a mobile node leaves the range of its current fixed access point, it loses connectivity, and must then find and re-establish a connection with the next access point along its path.

Even if the network is able to scan for and determine its next path prior to hand-off, it cannot use this newly ‘made’ connection until the old one is broken—it still can only make one connection at a time.

Breaking connectivity over and over leads to dropped data packets, high latency, and compromised application performance. Degradation becomes worse when trying to scale to hundreds of roaming assets.

At Rajant, we believe that a network should adapt to support all voice, video, and data assets that reside on or traverse it—no matter how those assets change or move. We call this a “living network”.

Don’t settle for anything less than the mission-critical reliability of a living network, enabled by Rajant’s “make-make-make-never-break” approach. It’s connectivity, evolved. 🖉
