Mining, oil and gas

The most performing LTE/5G solutions for the most challenging environments

Overground and underground mining are among the most challenging and demanding environments to provide mission critical communication services. In recent years, mine operators have sought more advanced technologies that can provide superior broadband solutions, compared to those offered by PMR, Tetra and Wi-Fi.

Thanks to its sophisticated control and ability to handle a large number of simultaneous high bandwidth transmissions with high reliability and predictability, LTE has emerged as a preferred solution.

problems to solve and constrains to care

Main Challenges

1

Rising labour cost, increasing safety and efficiency requirements

and non-availability of skilled personnel have led to massive digitalization of mine operations.

2

The digitalization change goes from

video-enabled communications for health and safety to highly performant communications for remote operations and monitoring of mining equipment, from asset and human tracking to energy conservation through efficient use of energy intensive operations such as ventilation.

3

Due to the mobility requirements in the mine, a wireless solution is the best

but it has to meet the reliability and security needs of mission and business critical environments

our solution

how we solve them

Our LTE / 5G private network solutions solve mining, oil and gas problems by meeting their very specific requirements and increasing worker safety (thus attracting talent who would otherwise have been put off by underground working conditions):

1

reliable broadband video and telemetry for remote control of mining equipment

2

enabling a secure remote control room over the ground

3

digitization and automation of large and complex crushing

4

real-time AR applications for construction, inspection and maintenance using LTE for backhaul

5

tracking of resources and people, ensuring the protection and management of employees and assets

6

optimization of air conditioning, heating and other environmentally sensitive activities

7

improvement of health and safety and operational performance through reliable video communications

8

“man down” alarms and remote accident analysis

9

improved perimeter and space security thanks to AI-influenced video surveillance

10

operations with aerial and land drones for surveillance and maintenance
