Rajant Announces New High-Performance Mesh System

April 17, 2008

The portable BreadCrumb LX delivers high bandwidth and resiliency for critical applications through a dual-radio architecture that uses both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz unlicensed frequency bands.

MALVERN, PA /BUSINESS WIRE/ -- Rajant Corp., a leading provider of portable wireless mesh networking solutions, announced the availability of the BreadCrumb LX, a new high-performance wireless access system. The high-bandwidth multi-radio device adds to the existing family of portable Rajant BreadCrumb wireless mesh devices deployed by hundreds of military, mining, and first responder customers worldwide.

Rajant's new BreadCrumb LX will allow users to connect standard IEEE 802.11b/g (Wi-Fi), or 802.11a devices such as laptops, PDAs, GPS devices, IP cameras, sensors and RFID tags to a secure, highly-available, high-bandwidth wireless mesh network. Increased bandwidth and interference avoidance is achieved through the dual radio architecture that utilizes both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz unlicensed frequency bands.

"The market has responded nicely to this new offering from Rajant," said Glenn Booth, Vice President of Marketing for Rajant. "The BreadCrumb LX multi-radio, multi-band architecture gives our customers even more bandwidth and network availability to support some of their new emerging applications, such as video streaming and health-monitoring of high-capital equipment. We have designed the BreadCrumb LX to be modular to support up to three radios. We are also testing additional frequency bands, such as 4.9 GHz and 900 MHz."

Rajant's InstaMesh is the underlying software technology on each BreadCrumb, which can maintain hundreds of client device and network BreadCrumb connections simultaneously, even while the clients and nodes are moving. InstaMesh removes much of the network setup and configuration complexity by using imbedded intelligence and a single switch for activation.

"The new BreadCrumb LX augments our Secure Mobile Communications offering, which gives our customers a multi-frequency, rugged, and secure mobile mesh solution," said Louis Street, Cofounder of Armoured Technology. "We found it to be very high performing, and it has robust radio and security features that are perfect for convoy, unmanned aerial vehicle, unmanned ground vehicle, and portable sensor applications."
