Rajant, a wireless connectivity specialist that is bringing IoT to port environments, has confirmed that it will be presenting at the Container Terminal Automation Conference (CTAC) and is a co-host sponsor for the event’s dinner at Searcys at the Gherkin skyscraper in London.
The conference session 'Automation with Exponential and Disruptive Technologies' on Day Two of the conference will feature Chris Mason, Director of Sales, EMEA, at Rajant.
Mason will inform the CTAC audience about the latest innovation to connect critical communications in the challenging environments presented by ports.
He said: “Rajant chose to speak at this event in order to directly address the key players in the industry from both software and an equipment perspective.
“The drive to automation in port environments is identical to industries where Rajant is already providing the always-connected communications essential to efficient and safe industrial automation applications.
“Port operations are a natural fit for Rajant's high-bandwidth, low-latency, secure networks.”

Rajant’s CEO and President, Robert Schena, a pioneer of Kinetic Mesh Networks and a Finalist for PACT’s Emerging Technology Company of the Year, will make a special address at the dinner.
He stated: “I’m looking forward to a collaborative collegial environment that will allow Rajant and other innovation leaders to discuss the challenges of the modern port industry and the opportunities that will create business improvements in ports.
“Especially as automated applications and the Industrial Internet of Things grow in usage, many ports are facing mobility challenges that can impact operations and stall progress if they are not resolved.
“It’s critical that Rajant and other technology leaders step forward to help the industry solve these challenges, and Rajant’s wireless network is proving to be a game-changer for ports that want to capitalize on automation and IoT by connecting all people, machines, assets and devices.”
