Today’s modern mine increasingly relies on the use of technology to deliver the safety and productivity being demanded in mine operations.
The use cases span multiple aspects of operations from safety systems such as slope stability radar, to information systems like fleet management systems and IoT to remote operations and autonomous vehicles (haul and drill).
Enabling these applications is the communications technology that underpins them and specifically, mobile communications.
By their very nature, mining equipment that requires broadband communications is mostly mobile. Consequently, the obvious solution to providing access is wireless technology. However, what solution is right for your mine site?
