A government-owned utilities provider in southwest Queensland Stanwell was battling the ever-evolving data and application requirements of their operational technology (OT) network. This OT network supports an array of site-wide systems and devices. They include CCTV, access control, environmental systems (noise blast and vibration), in-vehicle fleet management, fatigue management, digital fire alarm systems, manufacturing executing systems (MES), mining operational data warehouse, and industrial IoT edge devices.

The Challenge 

Harsh environments and conditions are ever-present in the industrial settings of utilities and mining. Stanwell is no exception. The Stanwell owns the Tarong power stations, which are one of Queensland’s largest electricity-generating sites, so area dependency on sustained operations is paramount, as is security to protect the critical infrastructure, which is government-owned.

Multiple applications, video streams, real-time data transfer, and edge devices require steadfast, unfailing networking support intolerant of downtime. The terrain adds to the impossibility of most networks to be consistent with low latency and high throughput. Towering ridges surround the mine. The high levels of infrastructure and electromagnetic interference produced by the power station are challenging for RF signals to overcome. Due to network failure to cover the Ash dams and water pipelines, environmental impacts must be predictably avoided.

Identifying early the need for private network infrastructure that could effectively support fully mobile wireless communications in industrial settings, Rajant Corporation developed its patented Kinetic Mesh® technology—and in turn became the pioneer provider of the most adaptable, scalable, and readily deployed fully mobile network on the market today.

Rajant was established in October 2001, after founders Robert Schena and Paul Hellhake recognized the significant shortcomings in traditional wireless mesh technology, particularly when it came to mobile voice and data networks used by first responders. The Rajant team envisioned a new, more robust mesh technology that would allow these networks to be fully mobile and mobility-enabled, and operate reliably in even the most demanding environments. Enter the Rajant Kinetic Mesh® network.
