Solution for Mining
It Is All About Automation, Efficiency & Productivity
In a world of deeper mines, more complex ore bodies, rising energy costs, social and geopolitical risks, infrastructure shortages and resource nationalism, mining companies remain under exceptional pressure to control costs, heighten efficiency and improve safety performance. The global mining industry faces a number of challenges today, but modern digital communications solutions can play a major role in helping to overcome some of these difficulties.
The use of communications technology in the mining industry can be divided into three main areas: automation; in-pit mobility; and data centric analytics. Digital communication technology is widely seen as having a major role to play here in helping to simplify processes, reduce risks, cut costs and improve margins.
The basic building block for increased mining digitization is to invest a converged communications platform capable of providing broadband speeds and supporting multiple data, voice and video applications. Analyzing big data connected to this platform will help managers in decision making to maximize efficiency, productivity, safety and profitability.
Modern technologies used in the mining can actively support real-time monitoring of people, machinery, and mine conditions. Constant two-way communication systems are a necessity that allows miners, support groups and control rooms to be in continuous contact.
