Mission-Critical Broadband Connectivity for the Digitally Unconnected During Emergency Response and Support for Underserved Communities Using Main Street Mesh Solution
Malvern, PA August 11, 2022: Rajant Corporation, the pioneer of Kinetic Mesh wireless networks, has partnered with Accelecom, the Kentucky-statewide ISP fiber optic company connecting all 120 counties in the Commonwealth, bringing wireless WAN (Wide Area Network) and public access Wi-Fi to assist both flood victim emergency communications and last mile connectivity for rural downtowns. Health centers in hard-hit Eastern Kentucky will have outdoor Wi-Fi at each campus due to the partnership. Further, the initial deployment of a primary Street Mesh solution connecting Harrison Countys courthouse to Cynthianas city hall is underway because the two entities integrate networking options make it possible for robust rural broadband. Playing a pivotal role is installation partner Eastern Telephone & Technology.
The theory because of this project was generated rapidly and required assistance beyond Rajant and Accelecom, shared Kathryn Robertson, Accelecoms Director of Business Development, concerning the free Wi-Fi for the flood zone. THE GUTS for Rural Development played an integral role in connecting Eastern Kentucky health departments to the Accelecom network, thus to be able to install Wi-Fi zones at the centers.
Rajant mobilized with technology, staffing, and financial support within the initial 24 hours of the catastrophic flooding, stated Justin Warren, Rajant Sales Director for Rural Broadband. As an all natural extension of the task we have been now doing with Accelecom and Eastern Telephone & Technology, we were prepared to step up to meet up the emergency communication needs Kentucky is facing. Cell service is spotty because of the high demand due to frontline response and outdoor Wi-Fi is non-existent. To obtain area health centers ready to go with outdoor connectivity, we rapidly set up Rajant BreadCrumb multi-frequency radio nodes with integrated Wi-Fi access point service for compatibility with an incredible number of laptops, tablets, and smartphones.
In a deal inked June 30th before Julys flooding, the firms began working together to supply wireless WAN and public Wi-Fi between government buildings. Further, the wireless rural broadband extended and enhanced the wired networking already set up with seamless integration, which required no infrastructure. This combination gave the Cynthiana and Harrison County communities a network in a position to support Smart City applications, such as for example cameras for public safety and traffic monitoring.
