Today’s mining companies are always looking at new technology for surface or underground mobile networking and data analysis to increase productivity while maintaining or increasing operational safety and environmental sustainability. A fully automated mine starts with a robust and reliable telecommunication system. With that in mind we offer solutions that transfer large quantities of data, video, image, voice at ultra-high-speed. With Hytera, a world leader in telecommunications, we have developed a product which has narrow band and wide band convergence for customers growing communications requirement while using a narrow band product investment protection. Our LTE product is mature for relevant industries. Our product will allow the processing of information related to the Internet of Things (IoT) and the implementation of autonomous mining equipment, tele-operation and predictive maintenance (asset management).  With the use of multi-mode radios, mobile phones or tablets our solution features high quality, mission critical, push-to-talk broadband video calling and multi-media messaging. Our smart communication solution for mining offers a complete end-to-end LTE wireless broadband network solution fully based on interoperable 3GPP LTE standards. It can provide fast, secure and real-time audio, data and M2M or IoT communications. It exceeds current LTE QoS (quality of service) norms to ensure the availability of resources when needed. Our solution includes the analysis of customer needs, the design of the solution and parts and labour to accomplish the tasks.
