3D-P Delivers Mining Technology Solutions

Mining

Mining companies understand the importance of knowing exactly where they are mining, the quality of the goods they are mining,  and creating efficiencies to deliver the product at the lowest cost. Mission-critical data provided by technology is all-important in helping mines achieve their goals.

3D-P Delivers Solutions for Connecting Technology.

Advancing technology brings exciting new applications but also tons of headaches for those who have to manage the application layers. New technology vendors want their customers to add additional hardware along with product-specific wireless networks to support their applications. Unfortunately, this often makes an unmanageable mess, and as a result many mines are unable to take advantage of the latest technology developments.

3D-P Intelligent EndpointTM Solves This Problem.

By utilizing this technology platform, the mine now has an onboard, rugged appliance box that can manage both the applications and the network simultaneously no matter the applications or the network.

3D-P Intelligent Endpoint is Application & Network Friendly.

Intelligent Endpoint™ allows the mine flexibility that it never had before. The Intelligent Endpoint™ is completely agnostic, meaning it can work with any hardware, application and wireless network. This allows mines to take advantage of the best applications and wireless technologies without having to do entire forklift upgrades to equipment and networks.

3D-P Future-Proofs a Mine.

Whether your mine needs a complete wireless network upgrade in order to add new or additional applications, or you have a new mine and want to ensure that you are future proofing your mine, 3D-P can handle the situation.

Major Mining Companies Depend on 3D-P.

We employ experts proficient in mining and network equipment as well as application software engineers. Our proven experience meets not only the demands of today’s environment but tomorrow’s as well.

3D-P Replaces a Masterlink® Network with Mine-Wide 802.11n

By Ron White, 3D-P Vice President of Technology

This year, 3D-P deployed the first 802.11n wireless network in an open pit mine.    The mine realized a drastic improvement in available network throughput – with data rates increasing from 11 Mbps to 130 Mbps – and will benefit from a significant reduction in latency.

The mine had been operating on a Modular Mining ® Masterlink (802.11b) network for several years but by 2010 they realized the time had come to find a network that could provide additional throughput for open-pit applications such as machine health and on-board cameras.    The new network needed to be reliable, secure and cost-effective, and would continue to provide connectivity for their Modular dispatching system.

When the decision was made to upgrade the existing network, the mine’s management team conducted  market research, interviews with other mine sites and reviewed available networks. After an extensive process, they selected 3D-P to upgrade to an 802.11n wireless network using 3D-P’s Intelligent EndpointTM (IEP) product line and Motorola’s AP 7181 access points.

Because the Intelligent Endpoint product line is a radio agnostic, open computing and networking platform, it allows for integration of an appropriate radio for the chosen infrastructure. In this case the chosen radio is a Ubiquiti 802.11n card working with the AP 7181 network. The combination of these products, when compared to all other 802.11n products on the market, can obtain 802.11n speeds at much greater distances in the outdoor environment, due to the ability to differentiate dual data streams at distances over 200 meters.

3D-P’s Intelligent Endpoints also provide an open-computing platform and can host 3rd party software applications.  The mine selected Matrikon to provide their machine health monitoring solution and ran it directly on 3D-P’s Intelligent Endpoints. This alleviated the need for additional hardware installations, thereby reducing costs and cab clutter.

3D-P was able to replace the existing network for this mine without interrupting service to existing Masterlink clients.

For more information on how this was done and the benefits to the mine, download our white paper: 3D-P Replaces a Masterlink Network

3D-P Has Done What Some Said was Impossible in the Mining Space

This year we have deployed three successful 802.11n wireless networks in remote locations.

Now our technology is available to all mines, everywhere.  It took some engineering  and thinking out of the box, but we proved it can be done! Not only done, but successfully done.

Mines have been eagerly awaiting a wireless network that could provide the reliability of 99% uptime. We’ve provided not only that but improved throughput that was unattainable in remote wireless mining environments just two years ago.

About 3D-P

Since 1996, 3D-P has brought customer-driven solutions and world-class technologies to mining and natural resource industries. 3D-P products increase productivity and decrease costs through the implementation of technology that is proven, reliable and cost effective.

3D-P’s team of experts includes Mining Engineers, Electrical Engineers, Telecommunications Engineers, Consultants and Software Engineers that have decades of experience developing advanced technology systems. They bring that experience to work every day solving mobile application and wireless network challenges.

How Modern Is Your Technology?

Take the Quiz

  • Can your equipment exchange vital, mission-critical information, 100% of the time?
  • Have you solved technology creep?
  • Can you connect new and old systems throughout your mine?
  • Does your aggregate data from various systems convert to actionable information?

If you’ve answered no to any of these questions, you will be interested in Mal Jone’s blog, A Modern Look at Mining Technology

“Many current pieces of mining equipment weren’t designed with modern networks in mind, so they all speak different languages. When critical information, such as GPS, slope monitoring, dispatching, dewatering, safety, machine health, etc. can’t be exchanged, efficiency, productivity, and safety are impacted.” read more

Intelligent Endpoints are ruggedized networking and computing platforms that connect networks to applications and people to their mines.

3D-P’s Intelligent Endpoint Products are vendor agnostic and allow for the exchange of information on all equipment and applications 100% of the time, they eliminate technology creep, and free data from vendor restraints turning it into actionable information in real time.  And they can be used on networks not designed for modern technology

Give Your Network a Grade

Choose One of the Following:

Love it! Everything works well all/most of the time – A – B

Some hardware/applications speak different language and can’t connect – C+

Old, doesn’t support modern technology – C

Frustrating. Constantly gives us trouble – D

I have threatened to blow it up – F

If you gave your network a C+ or below, you are in the company of mines across the globe. Most are facing complex communication problems, and network grades are slipping every day.

In Sean McClary’s blog, “Taking a Lesson from Corporate IT: Overcoming Technology Creep,” he explains why.

“Not long ago a typical surface mine needed very little in terms of data across a wireless network. Fast forward to today and that same mine may need 10 or 20 times the wireless network throughput. Unfortunately, many mines have never addressed the need at the wireless infrastructure . . .”(read more)

3D-P is middleware, and we have designed the solution.  We are the missing piece connecting your network with your applications.

Our Intelligent Endpoints are ruggedized, open networking and computing platforms.  They are vendor agnostic and will free your data from vendor restraints turning it into actionalble information. Our customer-driven solutions and technologies enable the integration of the best applications and wireless solutions without forklift upgrades to equipment and networks.
