Rajant Networks in Transportation & Shipping:
Optimize Communications and Control on the Move
Whether managing train lines across vast and remote areas, loading or unloading cargo in a seaport, or tracking bus fleets through densely populated cities, transportation operators are recognizing the safety and security gains that real-time vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications can provide. Concurrently, their passengers, customers and personnel are increasing their expectation for and reliance on in-transit mobile connectivity.
Rajant allows these operators to take advantage of the opportunities that a robust mobility component can bring to their network. In addition to enhancing the appeal of their transportation offering to today’s discerning consumers, Rajant’s Kinetic Mesh® networks optimize connectivity between command centers and high-speed trains, buses, and subway systems, ships, and containers, ensuring that operators remain in control no matter where their assets travel.
Watch Bob Schena, CEO and Co-Founder of Rajant, discuss how the Rajant CacheCrumb supports municipal mass transportation systems’ efforts to deploy and run next-generation applications, from real-time CCTV to on-board advertising.
Track Rail Assets with Ease Over Vast Areas.
In a Rajant Kinetic Mesh® network, every node can be mobile, providing every transportation asset that traverses or resides in the network with robust, high-bandwidth mobile connectivity. For railroads, this means that command centers can instantly access the analytical insights from applications running on each train—monitoring everything from equipment health to speed and location, wheel sensors and freight status, fuel consumption, traffic optimization and more.
Rajant Kinetic Mesh® networks provide both linear functionality and train-to-trackside handoff, with a ‘Make-Make-Make-Never-Break’ connectivity paradigm that ensures no loss in communication, even when traveling through remote terrains. The network is capable of any-node to any-node communications, allowing it to work autonomously or interoperate readily with satellite, point-to-point wireless, or wired links.
Increase Safety and Improve the Passenger Experience
From increasing personnel productivity to improving the safety of both passengers and freight, Rajant Kinetic Mesh® networks enable transportation operators to provide a modern mode of transportation for their on-board customers to enjoy while enhancing their competitive advantage in the process.
The Kinetic Mesh® network even gives bus, train, and subway operators the ability to dynamically load digital content based on their location along the route line, helping to offset the costs of important safety and security initiatives with paid advertising that has high relevance to passengers.
Mobilize Seaport Assets and Optimize Operations
With approximately 90% of the world’s trade carried by the international shipping industry, port operators are under great pressure to manage the countless operations involved in the successful movement of cargo. Rajant Kinetic Mesh® networks provide secure, high-performance connectivity for a wide range of port applications such as edge communications, unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) and automated guided vehicle (AGV) control, autonomous equipment communications, asset management, video surveillance, drone communications, and Wi-Fi access.
Rajant’s self-healing, peer-to-peer networks enable all network nodes and clients to move all the time, anywhere within the port network, providing real-time access to vital information and applications. As a result, seaport operators can increase productivity, enhance business agility, and protect people and assets more fully.
