3D-P’s goal is to strive to make our customers’ lives easier, particularly through the flexibility of our products. This was an important target when we started development of our Layer 2 fabric and the associated software EDEN – Easily Deployable Encapsulation.
Watch our panel of experts at 3D-P as they have an open forum and discussion around wireless connectivity in mines.
Let’s face it, 3D-P’s Intelligent End Points (IEPs) are as rugged as all get out. Hopefully, you will have seen them in action on YouTube as we shoot them, drop them out of planes, throw them in a lake and blow them up with a civil war canon.
LTE provides undeniable benefits to users of all kinds. This includes a high level of predictability, QoS and connectivity at longer distances than Wi-Fi style networks.
LTE provides distinct benefits in meeting the network requirements for autonomous applications in open pit and underground mining with its predictability and Quality of Service (QoS) capabilities.
This might seem counterintuitive to many. But think about all the tasks that you have on your work to do list that you never have the chance to tackle.
3D-P works with a diverse, wide variety of clients – large to small, quarries to mines to airports, located all over the world – and during my tenure it has been very interesting to note both the differences, and commonalities between the clients and the diverse solutions we employ. For example, no matter the industry,…
As previously discussed, a hybrid LTE/InstaMesh client solution presents a number of benefits to mines considering LTE. Often the mines investigating LTE solutions are larger mines, or those considering moving to autonomous operations.
For those readers that have never worked underground, trust me when I say “It’s Hard”. It is hard to work there, it is hard operating systems there, it is hard to install technologies there and it is hard to maintain systems there.
