Rajant’s Sparrow BreadCrumb takes flight

Making its debut this week at Central Asia’s Astana Mining & Metallurgy (AMM) Congress in Astana, Kazakhstan: Rajant’s Sparrow BreadCrumb for heavy-duty machinery and light-duty vehicle applications.

The new release, ideal for non-autonomous tele-remote mining and construction applications, is the latest portable wireless radio within its portfolio of industrial Kinetic Mesh nodes.

This IP67 radio has dual 2X2 MIMO transceivers and four antennas with multiple mounting options. The Sparrow interfaces include wired Ethernet and built-in Wi-Fi access points to enable data, voice and low-bandwidth video applications.

“Mid-Asia is a market with tremendous growth potential. Our Sparrow BreadCrumb perfectly bridges the gap between legacy Wi-Fi networks and the extremely expensive (and not always proven) LTE technology,” said Rajant Sales Director for CEE, CA, Turkey and Mongolia Marcin Kusztal.

“The Sparrow will ideally suit the needs of the mining market of Kazakhstan as well as other countries in central Asia and eastern Europe.”

AskomMET Chief Technology Officer Emil Ganbarov added: “The new Sparrow is an excellent tool not only for mining, but also for other areas of life and industries. The wireless Sparrow BreadCrumb’s compact, rugged design and wide operating temperature range will enable us to meet the expectations of the public safety, energy, and utility markets.”

Rajant noted that, like all other Rajant BreadCrumbs, the Sparrow solves Wi-Fi problems by providing sitewide Wi-Fi coverage, enabling machine-to-machine communications to see around obstructions, and providing sitewide ubiquitous Wi-Fi coverage to connect to Wi-Fi IoT devices, including VoIP handsets. It can also be deployed as a mobile or infrastructure wireless node.
