The tags have long battery life, flexible mounting options, call button and tamper-proof options, onboard sensor capabilities, the capability to store and receive data messages, and a clear channel assessment to avoid Wi-Fi data traffic interference.

According to Geoff Smith, Rajant’s Executive VP of Sales & Marketing, this is especially relevant to personnel tracking, which could be proven useful for industries such as oil and gas, petrochemical and ports.
