So you want to build a wireless network to support your industrial applications? Easy, right? Just get a nice high powered Access Point, shove it up high in the air, and make sure you cover as much of your desired coverage area as you can.
There you go, job done! Actually, it couldn’t be further from the truth.
Simply put, the Internet of Things (IoT) allows businesses to create value by adding intelligence to objects and connecting them to a system that proactively monitors, analyzes and produces valuable outcome.
Since your mine relies on real-time access to production and asset-health data, the reliability of your mine’s wireless network is critical. And wireless networking in the mining environment presents a unique set of challenges.
With the low hanging fruit gone, collaboration is becoming essential to achieve the next wave of productivity improvement. Microsoft, 3D-P and Snowden have recently started a pragmatic and innovative technology collaboration dedicated to address the common Internet of Things (IoT) challenges faced by the mining industry.
The mining industry has ever increasing requirements for access to productivity and asset health information from in-pit and mobile devices, allowing the mine to adapt more quickly to changing requirements and conditions in the mine and resulting in greater productivity and safety decisions. The collection of this data from the many connected in-field devices is known as the connected Internet of Things (IoT).
3D-P and iVolve recently completed the initial implementation of a scalable, affordable, open platform asset health solution at the North American Coal’s Sabine Mine, located in Hallsville, Texas.
3D-P is pleased to announce the availability of high performance, cost effective wireless networks for underground mines.
3D-P is proud to announce that, once again, it will exhibit at the upcoming MINExpo International show in Las Vegas, from September 26 to 28, booth # 8807, Central Hall of the Convention Centre.
3D-P today announced the release of the 3D-P Production Reporting and 3D-P Maintenance Reporting systems, powered by iVolve, adding to its current portfolio of Application Integration Solutions and Wireless Network Services.
3D-P is pleased to announce that it will exhibit at the next SME Annual Conference & Expo in Phoenix from February 21st to February 24th 2016.
With data as the theme of the conference, the 2016 SME will provide an insight on the different types of data already available, the issues currently faced by most companies and provide some solutions on better utilizing the data available for improved productivity, now and in the future.
