WA Tech Leader Invests Big in Rajant BreadCrumbs to Provide Greater Connectivity for Australian Mining

WA-based mining technology company, FTP Solutions, achieves top tier partnership status with Rajant Corporation after successfully winning the tender for design and supply of the largest Rajant Kinetic Mesh Peregrine and Hawk wireless network in the state.

The Peregrine and Hawk BreadCrumbs are one of Rajant’s easy-to-install wireless radio nodes, which form a Kinetic Mesh industrial wireless infrastructure, enabling voice, video, and data communications on mine sites.  

The accomplishment of the deal signifies FTP’s contribution and commitment to providing innovative and reliable solutions for strengthening the sector’s operations.

FTP Solutions General Manager of Business Development Dale Birt stated ‘this sale of Kinetic Mesh into a Tier 1 miner indicates that wireless technologies are still critical in the provision of OT Network Solutions.

“We are seeing an increase in the use of mesh networking for high-demand and complex terrains, as an alternative to traditional WIFI and more complex LTE networks, due to its inherent flexibility and adaptability.”

“Kinetic Mesh networking, coupled with FTP’s Integrated Management System, offers many advantages for our mining customers and the industry as a whole such as its self-healing abilities, as the failure of a single node does not disrupt the overall connectivity.”

With a commitment to providing reliable, fully mobile wireless communications in the most challenging industrial environments, Rajant Kinetic Mesh solutions are designed to meet requirements for mobility, speed, ruggedness, and operational complexity.

FTP Solutions was announced as a Rajant Kinetic Mesh Premier Partner at the Rajant Partner Summit held in Italy earlier in the year.

“Being recognised as a premier partner means our customers can access even greater support and cost benefits, and cements FTP Solutions as a leader in delivering efficient and reliable networks across operations in Australia and globally” says Mr Birt.

Rajant Corporation APAC Sales Director Troy Mckay says the partnership aids their collective goal to continue delivering complete IT/OT wireless mesh network solutions to major mining customers.

“FTP Solutions’ experience in designing and extending existing OT networks for operated, semi-autonomous and autonomous mining solutions enhances the value of our partnership in the delivery of market leading, mining technology solutions.”

The Kinetic Mesh Premier Partner status indicates FTP Solutions is equipped to successfully undertake large scale projects for Australia’s mining industry collaboratively with Rajant as a trusted solution provider.
