Intracom Telecom, a global telecommunication systems and solutions vendor, has announced the supply and deployment of its Fixed Wireless Access ecosystem , the WiBAS™ Point-to-MultiPoint (PtMP) and the uniMS™ platform, at one of the largest mines in Africa.
The use of high-frequency PtMP technology over the vast area of the mine is one of the many uses for this technology, Intracom Telecom says, with mining companies able to take advantage of the latest technology to ensure not only high capacity but also long range to cover large areas and connect with lightweight network assets the remote points to a central hub.
Intracom Telecom says it has been pioneering the use of its PtMP technology for open-pit mines in the African continent, foreseeing the need of a transmission technology that can transport bidirectional digital traffic at ultra-high speeds.
In the harsh environment of the mines, WiBAS technology is being used to provide high-quality broadband services and avoid the cost and trouble associated with the use of cables, the company said. The WiBAS systems can be easily installed at any facility and be scaled to support larger areas of coverage, with more devices and higher capacities when required.
Moreover, through uni|MS™ IoT control and management platform, the mines make efficient use of their communication infrastructure. The sophisticated alarm flow coupled with key performance indicators, available on reports and graphs, elevate operator experience and ensure timely optimisations, according to Intracom Telecom.
John Tenidis, Marketing Director of Wireless Network Systems at Intracom Telecom, said: “We have been serving our customers in Africa for their needs to connect remote location in mines since 2011. We are very pleased to extend our cooperation with one of the biggest African mines to provide modern communications to ground crews and machine operating personnel, while safeguarding and monitoring the perimeter of the mine.”
