Broadband wireless networks can be built quickly and inexpensively to provide a robust, reliable network in locations that are not easily connected using land lines. 

We will help you design a wireless network and supply you with everything you need from the wireless routers and bridges to the cable, antennas and towers.

 Broadband wireless is especially useful as a network for video surveillance, which is essential for worker safety when mines are located in troublesome areas. Broadband wireless networks are also excellent for:

  • Remote camp connectivity
  • Real-time telemetry data monitoring
  • Video surveillance
  • Network backhaul

Some of the challenges that our mining industry customers have solved using broadband wireless networks include:

  • Fleet management – continuously optimize mine operations through real-time work order assignment and vehicle guidance/positioning to maximize productivity and capital utilization. 
  • Live monitoring of mobile equipment telemetry – increases uptime, improves operational efficiencies and lowers costs, and safety of mission critical heavy duty mining equipment. 
  • Real-time video feeds for operations – increases situational awareness and safety, with 24/7 visibility into mining pit activities. 
  • Video surveillance – enables remote monitoring of key facilities such as explosive storage locations and mixing sites; it is also used for enabling perimeter security, monitoring for possible illicit activity and site entry, as well as emergency situations such as fire or storm damage.
  • Safety system monitoring – enhances site and personnel safety. Examples of real-time monitoring applications include “man down” systems and streaming radar scans of pit walls to detect movement that could indicate a stability problem.
  • Mobile field communications – enables communications and access to data between workers in the mine fields, staff located in operations control and processing plants, improving operational efficiencies and productivity.
  • Field access to drill and blast data – enables workers to quickly determine the proper amount of placement of explosives.
  • Mining Management Software (MMS) – remote analysis applications used in making operational decisions that improve mining productivity and profitability.
  • Autonomous and semi-autonomous mining applications – enable remote operations of mining equipment without human operators, keeping people out of dangerous situations as well as increasing productivity.
