RADWIN recently announced how their RADWIN JET Beamforming Wireless PtMP solutions were deployed by leading mining companies in Australia and Chile to deliver ultra-capacity connectivity in open-pit mines.
Yossi Nissan, Business Development Director at Strategic Industries, explains the unique difficulties that the mining companies face with regards to implementing a wireless broadband solution and how RADWIN’s JET Beamforming solution helped overcome these problems:
“Mining companies require high-quality wireless broadband connectivity to improve operational efficiency, thus enhancing productivity and safety. The ever-changing terrain of surface mines makes it very difficult for existing wireless technologies to deliver the required capacity and service levels.
“RADWIN’s JET Beamforming solution is ideally suited to operate in dynamic mining environments as it continuously adjusts the signal path to guarantee high-level transmission quality. RADWIN JET is already successfully deployed in some of the toughest mining environments in the world, operating in high interference and non-line-of-sight scenarios.”
JET Beamforming delivers up to 750Mbps per base station and up to 3Gbps per cell needed to run multiple applications in open-pit mines including backhaul for LTE and Wi-Fi communication trailers, industrial IoT devices, stackers, reclaimers, dewatering systems and sensors as well as high-definition video surveillance. JET Beamforming’s multi-band support feature (3.3-3.8GHz and 4.9GHz-5.8GHz) assures optimal deployment flexibility; the solution provides outstanding uplink capacity (up to 90%) and SLA for mission critical applications.
