Rajant Corporation, the provider of Kinetic Mesh® wireless networks, will be attending Mining World Russia, which takes place at Moscow’s Crocus Expo. The international trade show, which is in its 25th year exhibiting machines and equipment for mining, processing, and transportation of minerals, takes place 20th – 22nd April 2021, with Rajant joining its partners in Pavilion 1, Hall 3, Stand B2051. Showcasing collaborative solutions for fully mobile mining connectivity will be Rajant’s Russia-based distributor CompTek and technology providers LANIT, AMT-GROUP, CROC, DCLogic, NEMAN, and SATEL.
Showcased alongside Rajant’s networking will be LANIT’s VR/AR ‘smart glasses’. Equipped with a video camera and compact screen, this technological solution’s software operates over the Rajant network and enables visualisation of on-site observations to command centres for collaborative off-site expertise to complete all phases of the mining mission successfully.
“You need a Mission Critical network to enable Augmented Reality in hard-to-reach challenging locations,” said Nikita Ivanov, CompTek’s Head of Sales. “CompTek’s integration partners in Russia and the CIS are committed to evolving mining’s overall productivity, safety, and efficiency. With Rajant and its partners, a fully digitalised mine is possible.”
Mines are some of the most challenging Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) environments in which to deploy network systems. Rajant’s partnership with CompTek, a Russian distributor of network and telecommunication equipment, has brought together other Eastern Europe and CIS partners to demonstrate support of machine-to-machine (M2M) connectivity and mobility for opencast and underground mining.
“Unlike traditional wireless networks that run using fixed infrastructure and have limited range and coverage such as Wi-Fi and LTE, Rajant is unique,” added Marcin Kusztal, Sales Director Eastern Europe and CIS for Rajant. “Our Kinetic Mesh BreadCrumb® nodes overcome the mine’s constantly changing conditions, which hinder connectivity and real-time application support, with industrial wireless networking that is unwavering in adverse and mobile environments. Rajant’s self-optimising Kinetic Mesh nodes work via multiple-frequency, peer-to-peer connections. Plus, the BreadCrumbs can be fixed or mobile, ensuring a mining operation’s continuous productivity and safety.”
