Mining communications systems are usually geographically constrained around individual mines. However, the mine of the future demands integrated company-wide communications across the entire reach of its operations – not just from pit to port, but across multiple field sites, and city-based corporate offices. How can this be achieved? In this lesson from the Tait Radio Academy, we explore this question.

Organizations such as mines, transport agencies and utilities often cover vast areas, working across different sites. When these particular areas and sites operate on different networks or frequency bands, staying connected can become complicated. The new Tait TM9356 dual band mobile radio makes it easy to switch between analog and DMR Tier 2 bands, and enables you to communicate through a single control head.

Much like the strata of rock visible in a mine, modern mining communications rest on layers of communications technologies, introduced over time to improve the safety, efficiency, and productivity of mining operations.

Ground-breaking new technologies will continue to emerge, but earlier technologies continue to perform the function they were intended for, and do not necessarily become obsolete; indeed most remain relevant and are maintained, advanced and upgraded by manufacturers.

So, rather than the development of a single, ideal technology, the future... Continue Reading
