Rajant to Display its Rugged Wireless Mesh Solutions, Including the New BreadCrumb® LX5 Portable Wireless Mesh Network Node

Malvern, Pa. – May 6, 2014 – Rajant Corporation, the pioneer of Kinetic Mesh™ networks and provider of proven, multi-frequency mesh networking solutions, today announced plans to unveil its new BreadCrumb® LX5 Portable Wireless Mesh Network Node at the CIM 2014 Convention in Vancouver, BC taking place May 11-14. Attendees can view Rajant’s innovative wireless mesh solutions in person and get a first look at the new LX5 mesh node in the Rajant booth (#1041).

The Rajant BreadCrumb LX5 is the latest in a line of multi-radio nodes in the BreadCrumb family that, when paired with other Rajant products, create a rugged and reliable mesh network. The LX5 supports the use of IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n protocols to enable data, voice and video applications through up to four radio modules and six external antenna ports employing any combination of the 900 MHz, 2.4 GHz, 4.9 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands. Up to three radio modules in an LX5 can be configured for multiple input, multiple output (MIMO) use. The LX5 provides faster routing and gateway processing relative to Rajant’s previous models, and is designed to be backwards compatible with previous BreadCrumb models to ensure an easy migration path for current BreadCrumb users.

“The BreadCrumb LX5 represents the next generation of Rajant’s rugged and reliable BreadCrumb family of wireless mesh nodes,” said Bob Schena, President and CEO of Rajant Corporation. “As with all nodes in the BreadCrumb LX series, the LX5 was designed to stand up to the rigors of environments found in the Mining, Military and Oil & Gas industries. It is necessary for all of our equipment to be rugged and reliable so that clients know that, even in the harshest environments, their communications networks will always be available.”

Rajant’s patented InstaMesh® software allows BreadCrumb wireless nodes to provide continuous and instantaneous routing of wireless and wired connections. InstaMesh technology is used in demanding operations to provide networking for voice and data communications, video feeds and remote monitoring.

In addition to seeing the Rajant BreadCrumb LX5 for the first time, visitors to the Rajant booth will also be able to learn more about Rajant’s networking solutions for mining applications and explore how Rajant’s Kinetic Mesh™ technology can deliver reliable, resilient, scalable networks which provide continuous wireless connectivity. You can visit Rajant at booth #1041.
