After extensive testing, Caterpillar Inc. has completed the in-house validation of Rajant BreadCrumbs®, LX5 CA radios, which will enable field trials with this Rajant product and Cat® MineStar™ Command for hauling.
“This validation is a key step to provide additional options for our mining customers when deploying Command for hauling in their operation,” said Sean McGinnis, vice president and general manager of technology and global sales support at Caterpillar. “We greatly appreciate the support from the Rajant team throughout the validation process.”
Rajant Corporation is the leading provider of Kinetic Mesh® networking systems, a class of networking utilizing fully autonomous nodes to achieve high performance even under ever-changing conditions. Using its patented InstaMesh® routing technology, Rajant networks provide dynamic network connections in a mobile environment, routing traffic through the best available route as network topology is constantly changing.
Rajant’s wireless nodes have multiple radios operating at different frequencies and route traffic through mobile nodes to improve connectivity and throughput in dynamic environments. This approach creates more available radio paths, delivering uninterrupted communications where other solutions have failed. The next step is to validate the solution with Command for hauling in production at a mine site to confirm performance and scalability.

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.
