Delivering Connectivity for All Phases of Mining and Construction Operations

Mine operators and construction companies rely on broadband solutions for remote site automation, corporate network extension and workforce welfare.   

MINING & CONSTRUCTION

Mining companies need high-availability solutions that offer guaranteed uptime to help maintain critical Integrated Remote Operations Centers (IROC) communications, achieve real-time automation, enhance safety in hazardous working environments, increase productivity and extend mine life.

ITC Global delivers complete end-to-end satellite communications solutions for business communications, site operations and staff welfare. Our tailored networks meet on-site broadband needs for all phases of the mineral development cycle, including:

  • Geoscience
  • Exploration
  • Development
  • Production

Managed Services – A Communications Partner With First-Hand Expertise

Mine operators and construction firms need custom communications solutions that meet the highest levels of reliability, network security and scalability. They can rely on our first-hand industry knowledge to create networking solutions that support business communications, operations and staff welfare challenges in every location and harsh operating environment.

A properly designed and engineered network solution minimizes extra costs without jeopardizing performance. This includes:

  • Developing a site-by-site technical plan to deliver required service levels and availability
  • Defining a capacity plan to allocate bandwidth based on traffic volume requirements for the overall network and the needs of each application
  • Selecting the components for the specific needs of each site
  • Monitoring and optimizing a network around the clock

The Panasonic Network – Delivering Operational Scalability Today and Tomorrow

The Panasonic Network integrates satellites, ground stations and points-of-presence to provide superior connectivity to remote mining and construction sites.

Benefits:

  • Connectivity in multiple frequency bands to deliver service best suited to a mining site’s operation while accommodating existing antennas and network equipment
  • Bandwidth coverage focused in high-demand areas, supplying capacity where it’s needed and scaling down in low-use regions
  • Cyber security to prevent nefarious operators from hacking into mine-site communications to gain commodity intelligence
  • 10 times more capacity with new high-throughput satellites (HTS), supporting growing requirements for site monitoring and enhanced business processes
