BT and Rajant Corp bring global networks into the heart of industrial environments

BT, one of the world’s leading providers of communications

services and solutions, serving customers in more than 170 countries, and Rajant, pioneer of innovative kinetic mesh
technology for private wireless networks, today announced a global framework
agreement that will take BT’s global network coverage deeper into the
industrial operations of customers. This agreement will enable organisations to
connect and gather data from thousands of devices such as sensors, autonomous
vehicles, industrial machinery, high-definition cameras, VoIP systems and
others to their corporate networks and data centres.

<p style="margin-bottom:12.0pt; line-height:150%; text-autospace:
none">As businesses take
advantage of the Internet of Things (IoT) to deliver efficiency and automation,
the importance of a secure, resilient and adaptive network with no
single point of failure, especially in industrial operations, is critical –
since downtime may be counted in millions of dollars an hour.

“Our

agreement with Rajant enables us to further extend the reach of our network
deeper into our customers’ operations,” said Hubertus von Roenne, vice
president, Global Industry Practices, BT.  “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.”

“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,” said Bob Schena, CEO and co-founder of Rajant. “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.”

Rajant

makes mobile, scalable and highly reliable kinetic wireless
mesh
network technology, which provides an always-on communications network so
critical applications can be accessed in real time.

BT

Global Services is a leader in managed networked IT services, supporting
leading global multinationals from a variety of sectors, including defense, oil
and gas, mining, and manufacturing companies and public sector organisations.
These customers require real-time network performance monitoring and reliable
IT services.

In

addition to its kinetic mesh products and services, Rajant also will provide
global training, joint sales and marketing initiatives, and product
demonstration in this agreement.
