Datasat Communications is a leading service provider in the rapidly expanding sector of mining communications. Specialising in delivering communications solutions for terrestrial mine operators, the company provides robust and reliable network infrastructures for critical mine data, voice connectivity and corporate networking to mining properties in the world's most remote locations. With a satellite communications infrastructure, we deliver tailored solutions for all the major mining communications requirements.
Remote VSAT networks for mining communication
Providing high performance intra-site, site-to-site and site-to-office communications cost-effectively is a challenge for every land mining operator. When mines are constantly changing from exploration to operation to closure, the communications solution must be quick and easy to deploy and flexible enough to respond to altering business requirements. Datasat Communications designs, builds and manages high performance, high availability VSAT networks that exactly meet our mining client's exacting requirements.
A reliable remote communications infrastructure
Commonly, the mining site will be in an area where a physical fibre-based infrastructure is not available. It's not financially viable or desirable for the organisation to lay fibre for last mile connectivity, especially where the longevity of the mining site can't be accurately predicted. WiFi or WiMAX signals can prove effective for certain types of intra-site communication. However, it is frequently preferable to make use of VSAT satellite networks for WAN links, including site-to-site and site-to-office communications.
Meeting communications requirements for mines
Remote communications solutions from Datasat Communications overcome these restrictions while reducing the costs associated with effectively meeting the requirements of remote mining operations.
Key mining applications include:
• Corporate networking
• Voice connectivity
• Mine exploration
• Miner welfare
• Asset management and security
• Site and miner safety
• SAP implementations
• Corporate social responsibility
Towards a hybrid network solution
As intra-site systems based on wireless technologies mature – such as asset management and site safety telemetry – Datasat Communications is developing hybrid network infrastructures with satellite communications at the core that let mining operators benefit from the latest on-site technologies and systems.
