BT has inked a partnership with Rajant, an innovative kinetic mesh technology provider for private wireless networks, to enable its global network coverage to reach deeper into the industrial operations of its enterprise customers.
Rajant's technology seamlessly integrates with any Wi-Fi or ethernet-connected device to deliver low-latency, high-throughput data, voice and video applications across the meshed, self-healing network, providing a resilient and an adaptive network. This feature is particularly important in industrial operations where down times can lead to major losses.
With the partnership, both companies plan to connect and gather data from thousands of devices such as sensors, autonomous vehicles, industrial machinery, high-definition cameras, VoIP systems and others to clients' corporate networks and data centres.
Hubertus von Roenne, vice president, Global Industry Practices, BT
Our agreement with Rajant enables us to further extend the reach of our network deeper into our customers’ operations. This means that our customers with devices located in production lines, and in remote areas, such as mines, oil rigs and other industrial sites, can bring more of their equipment and devices online and thus leverage the industrial IoT to improve performance and competitive advantage.
Bob Schena, CEO and co-founder of Rajant
We are delighted to partner with a leading, global network services company such as BT. This agreement expands Rajant’s already broad footprint in industrial applications and will accelerate our leadership position in wireless mesh networking. This is a game-changing partnership for us, and it is a testament to the integrity of our wireless mesh technology and to the people delivering our products and services.
