Rajant Honored with 2020 Platinum Homeland Security ‘Astors’ Award

Rajant Corporation, the Kinetic Mesh® wireless network provider, is the recipient of a Platinum 2020 American Security Today ASTORS Homeland Security Award for Rajant’s ES1 BreadCrumb® as the “Best Wireless Network Security Solution”. Enabling highly mobile, IoT applications for public safety and security, the Rajant ES1 is a compact, lightweight IP67 network node. The ES1 supports machine-to-machine (M2M), machine to infrastructure (M2I), and man-to-machine data, voice, and video communication to extend communication beyond the reach of LTE and Wi-Fi in challenging environments. Ideal for wearable technology, like the Vorbeck HD4 Harness and robotic platforms, the Rajant ES1 provides a real-time Hot-to-Cold Zone connection for public safety and industry security professionals to interact safely in the harshest communication environments.

The American Security Today (AST) ASTORS Award, now in its fifth year, honors forward-thinking solutions that deliver enhanced value, benefit, and intelligence to end-users in various government, homeland security, enterprise, and public safety vertical markets. According to Michael Madsen, AST co-founder and publisher, “As the nation continues to respond to escalating threats from home and abroad, the innovative solutions being implemented to meet those threats, has led to tremendous growth in the field of Homeland Security. An ASTORS distinction shines a bright light on the cutting-edge technologies and providers making a difference to protect our public spaces.”

Tammy Waitt, co-founder and editorial director of American Security Today, adds, “ASTORS’ nominations are evaluated on their technical innovation, interoperability, specific impact within the category, overall impact to the industry, relatability to other industry technologies, and application feasibility outside of the industry. We encourage other public safety and security pacesetters to find out more about AST and apply for our 2021 ASTORS.”

Rajant’s Executive Vice President of Global Sales & Marketing Geoff Smith shares, “The Rajant ES1 BreadCrumb, along with our full suite of products, have unique capabilities that enable them to perform flawlessly for mission-critical situations. Every Rajant BreadCrumb can hold multiple simultaneous connections, over multiple frequencies, with other nodes in the Kinetic Mesh, eliminating the need for a controller node while adding network reliability. No connections have to be broken for new ones to be made providing for resilient mobility and a level of autonomy that public safety and security demands. We are grateful for the distinction of being ASTORS’ Best Wireless Network Security Solution.”
