Kinetic Mesh® Networks in Municipality & Public Safety:
Connecting Constituents, Creating ‘Smart’ Cities
Today’s municipalities need networks that can satisfy a dense and broad range of users and applications, all of which are becoming more mobile. In addition to providing anytime, anywhere connectivity for personal, business, and governmental applications, municipal networks must support broad-reaching public safety initiatives.
Rajant Kinetic Mesh® technology seamlessly integrates with existing communications infrastructure to support these highly varied users and needs: all in a way that lowers total ownership costs and management complexity while helping to drive economic growth.
Add Critical Mobile Functionality to Existing Network Investments.
Rajant Kinetic Mesh® networks can fully interoperate with point-to-point, microwave, and traditional mesh networks, allowing municipalities to retain their current infrastructure and add to it a powerful mobility solution to address growing mobile demands. Eliminate costly leased line fees with a higher performance, lower cost network option that can be rapidly deployed, easily scaled, and simply managed.
The any-node to any-node communications enabled with Rajant’s BreadCrumbs ensures that no single point of failure throughout the network—which means workers and residents can stay connected on the go (even on public transportation), and that police, firefighters, and emergency units to take their data and communications anywhere, for rapid, real-time response.
Remove Points of Failure for Critical First Response Communications.
Whether in an urban city or remote locale, Rajant Kinetic Mesh® networks allow first responders to access vital voice, data and video communications, and remain confident that the connection will be available wherever they travel.
Traditional mesh networking technologies offer mobile capabilities but are hindered by a vulnerable, static ‘controller’ node which can compromise the entire network if affected. Alternatively, Rajant’s Kinetic Mesh® network is designed so that all BreadCrumb nodes can be in motion all the time, using InstaMesh technology to automatically route packet over the best available frequency so that blocked, jammed or unavailable frequencies do not mean failure.
Enable Real-Time Awareness to Create Safe Communities.
Additionally, Rajant Kinetic Mesh® networks allow communities to improve situational awareness with high-bandwidth transmission of security and surveillance monitoring data. Massive amounts of video data can be delivered with high throughput and low latency across the network, bringing public safety workers the visibility they need to identify potential threats and issues early, and transforming monitoring outcomes from reactive actions to proactive opportunities to advance security.
Create Draw to Your City Through Smart Innovation.
Frost & Sullivan defines a smart city as built on ‘intelligent’ solutions and technology that drive innovation in 8 key areas, including smart mobility and smart connectivity. These are the cities of the future, and Rajant can help your municipality evolve its network infrastructure to take advantage of the rapid trend to provide fully integrated, intelligent services to all constituents—increasing the speed and quality of service delivered by departments at every level to drive economic growth.
