Kinetic Mesh Networking for Mining Operations
Rajant's wireless communications combined with Trimble's positioning solutions-the Trimble Terralite XPS GNSS and Trimble 4D Control slope monitoring system as well as third-party productivity and safety applications-provide the technology infrastructure needed to support mining productivity and safety applications from fleet management and grade control for road construction to collision avoidance and slope monitoring. With Rajant's Kinetic Mesh technology, Trimble can provide a complete communications and positioning infrastructure solution for mining.
Rajant BreadCrumb wireless, portable mesh networking nodes with InstaMesh software enable continuous and instantaneous routing of wireless and wired connections. This dynamic frequency utilization capability allows for network mobility with robust fault tolerance, high throughput and low latency. Rajant's technology is used extensively today in demanding military and mining operations to provide reliable networking for remote monitoring, tracking assets, voice and data communications, and video feeds.
'The increase in precision and automation across mining processes requires advanced positioning and communication technology to build a reliable geospatial infrastructure at the mine site. Rajant's mesh networking technologies complement our positioning technologies to deliver this complete infrastructure solution,' said
'Our ability to address complex topographic, machine and application challenges has made Rajant the networking provider of choice in mining environments,' said
Trimble currently offers Rajant's Kinetic Mesh networks through its subsidiary in
