The mining industry in South Africa faces some unique challenges that requires a bespoke mobile wireless solution to ensure optimum productivity and efficiency. Poor outdoor connectivity, old legacy equipment, mine location, harshness of the terrain and poor management are just a few stumbling blocks preventing mines to operate optimally. Our bespoke Mobile Wireless Solution addresses these pain-points to increase productivity and optimise the business.
Financial: Creating a Local Area Network (LAN) using wireless technology will decrease monthly operating expenditure due to the cost saving on subscription fees.
Convenience: LTE, as opposed to Wi-Fi, is an Internet Service Provided Network requiring subscription to the network, purchasing of data bundles and managing of SIM Cards.
SIM Cards: Requirements eliminated by using a Mobile Wi-Fi solution.
Scalability: Devices can be mobile and additional devices can be added without expensive fixed line infrastructures, i.e. additional network points and cabling.
Stability: Technology devices connected to vehicles and other machinery is more commonly known to use Wi-Fi as it is more stable when managed correctly, plus it allows you to use more capacity for other projects on the network.
Flexibility: Due to the changing nature of the ground architecture, a Mobile Wi-Fi Solution can be moved and positioned as the need requires as opposed to LTE that gets ICASA licensing approval on specific locations only.
