Rajant Corp. has reported the first deployment of its fourth-generation BreadCrumb® Peregrine in South Africa with Anglo American.

After successful implementation, Anglo American confirmed a notable increase in capacity of the Rajant Peregrine within its pit network, which enabled the company to become more innovative by introducing technologies in areas of its operation where it was previously impossible. This has allowed the mine to scale the overall network with the operation’s demands quickly, bringing much higher bandwidth closer within areas of its pit production environment.

The Peregrine is Rajant’s fourth generation Kinetic Mesh BreadCrumb which supports a maximum combined data rate of 2.3 Gbps and up to 6X enhanced throughput performance over existing Rajant BreadCrumbs. It offers multiple MIMO radio interfaces, high throughput and enhanced security performance, with up to 256-QAM and 80 MHz channels. The Peregrine is part of Rajant’s initiative to develop deeply integrated solutions that securely combine data from connected people, vehicles, machines and sensors, with machine learning.

This data combination unlocks the benefits of process optimisation, digital twins, predictive analytics, condition-based maintenance, augmented reality, and virtual reality while improving worker safety. The Peregrine is interoperable with all BreadCrumb radio nodes to expand market capabilities for industries like mining, rail, shipping ports, public safety, agriculture, and heavy construction. It is fortified with rugged, environmentally sealed enclosures and supports several robust cryptographic options for data and MAC-address encryption and per-hop, per-packet authentication. Scalable to hundreds of mobile, high-bandwidth nodes, the Peregrine enables data, voice, and video applications.
