Global trends impacting the mining industry

The mining and metals industry face a number of challenges including fluctuating demand for ores and metals, excess capacity and increased competition from competing materials, leading to weaker prices. The most accessible high-quality deposits are already being exploited, forcing the industry to develop lower-quality ores in more remote regions.

Mining faces more stringent environmental and safety regulations and the requirement to engage more with local communities. The industry also suffers from an ageing workforce but is finding it hard to recruit younger people with modern technological skills. All of these factors are driving up costs.

To meet these challenges, mining companies must reduce operating costs and boost efficiency, productivity and safety if they are to achieve profitability. Increased digitalization of the industry is one way to do this.

How digital communication solutions benefit the mining industry

Integrating terminals, network, data centre and command and dispatch centre, Hytera digital communication solutions provide a highly transportable end-to-end broadband solution. It is capable of supporting sophisticated automation, data analytics and all the voice, video, data and M2M/IoT applications used in the mining industry.

The fully 3GPP-compliant 4G/5G solution provides a complete wireless broadband network including radio access network (RAN), backhaul, LTE core, device and network management. Multiple services can be run simultaneously over the high throughput and resilient 4G/5G network, including: Mission Critical Push-to-X (Voice/Data/Video); real-time video streaming; telemetry/SCADA; and M2M/IoT sensor monitoring. Low latency transmission rates (< 100ms) enable precise control of remote automated operations.

The various technologies can all be managed using one unified command and visualized dispatch centre and a remote control centre, which receive and distribute real-time information from and to the field operations. The network infrastructure also supports intelligent data analytics and artificial intelligence applications.

Who is applying Hytera digital communication solutions?

Hytera’s solutions have been successfully applied in the mining industry where they have helped customers solve their communication problems. For example, JSC AK Altynalmas has deployed a Hytera Hytalk (PoC) LTE platform and terminals in Kazakhstan, while the Letpadaung Copper Mine in Myanmar is using an integrated Hytera DMR and LTE solution.

Hytera’s intelligent communications solution for mining provides instant voice, video and data communications to deliver team members the information they need to know to carry out their work. Hytera’s communications solution supports a rich ecosystem of real-time intelligence, which enables teams to work more efficiently, productively and safely.
