Mining

Redline transforms your mining operation into a completely nomadic and impressively responsive system that can support several applications over one network

Most surface and underground mining companies have an urgent demand to:

 

  • Operate efficiently with improved productivity
  • Improve operational safety

This translates directly into ‘digital transformation for mining, where connectivity is a key component for all operational functions.

 

Mining companies are moving quickly to explore technology initiatives and discovering that the next generation of digital mine transformation projects occurring globally all rely on a robust, fit-for-purpose private, dedicated and secure LTE infrastructure.

They are also recognizing that implementing customized communications solutions to meet the unique requirements of a digital mine can be very challenging. Constantly changing landscapes, narrow and uneven structures, poor line-of-sight, dust and gas concentration, and many other challenges necessitates the need for a unique communication network solution to handle the complexities of a mine for full coverage. Each mine requires a complete communication system that can handle day-to-day operations reliably and withstand harsh conditions to continue to work in emergency situations, where it is paramount to know where the miners are and what environmental conditions and challenges lie ahead of the rescue team.

The Redline Solution

Redline Communications® fit-for-purpose technology, coupled with detailed operational knowledge and a means to demonstrate innovation and capabilities, is a key competitive differentiator to assist mining companies globally in transforming their operational processes. In addition, the ability to lower operational costs, improve productivity and availability of critical information can be realized from the private LTE network. Mining companies will be able to implement a purpose-built, ruggedized, secure solution with complete control over the Quality of Service (QoS).

 

Redline Communications provides a holistic and complete network solution that features added flexibility and scalability to meet the end-to-end requirements of mining operations. Remote Terminal Units (RTUs) connect with fixed sensors and provide mobility with extremely low latency to connect autonomous vehicles and human resources within the mine. By combining our Virtual Fiber® (Point-to-Point / Point-to-Multipoint) solution, a flexible and durable backhaul / wide-area broadband system, and our iLTE solution, a robust industrial LTE solution for edge and mobile communications, Redline Communications is your one-stop-shop to turn the concept of SMART mining into a reality.

 

Redline provides the most powerful, rugged and reliable wireless networks using leading-edge technology helping to deliver the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) to organizations building private wide area networks.

Industrial LTE

Redline iLTE is a comprehensive suite of Industrial/Rugged LTE products and services that combine to deliver low power consumption solutions without sacrificing security, reliability, flexibility, scalability, and durability to the mobile network. iLTE provides a turnkey approach to private LTE with its quick and easy deployment and ease of use. Redline prides itself on delivering end-to-end solutions in the private LTE space. From discovery to RF and network design to deployment and support, we foster strong customer and partner relationships that ensure success at every level.

Virtual Fiber®

Redline’s Virtual Fiber is an award-winning, extremely flexible and powerful wide area broadband technology. Our Virtual Fiber solutions have been specially designed for flexibility, allowing for point-to-point (PTP) and point-to-multipoint (PMP) links to meet the backhaul and last mile requirements of digital mines. Virtual Fiber provides robust coverage to connect fixed and nomadic mining assets spread over a large area. Available in multiple form factors, our industrial-grade, high-capacity radios offer auto-scan and align modules to provide an easy and rapidly deployable platform to connect fixed and nomadic SCADA, Video Surveillance, and data connectivity applications.

Rugged & Rapidly Deployable Networks

Mines are always changing, with new tunnels being added and closed daily. It is critical to adopt a solution which is flexible and rugged enough to be easily moved and deployed to new locations at an instant. Redline’s Virtual Fiber and iLTE solutions were both developed with industrial-grade ruggedness and flexibility in mind. These solutions allow mining operators to quickly, and cost effectively, move existing networks to provide coverage to changing areas of interest. Redline’s unique LTE enodeB features the functionality of a Baseband Unit (BBU) and a Remote Radio Unit (RRU) in a single, easily portable unit (IP67 enclosure, extended temperature rating and hazardous ATEX Zone 2 certified).

Industrial IoT & Autonomous Machinery

Redline’s patented technology reduces the number of communication appliances required to connect Industrial IoT devices to the wireless network, simplifying both deployment and network management while allowing for high scalability and NBIoT support.

Push-to-Talk

Redline’s Virtualized Industrial Push-to-Talk application can be installed across all iOS and Android platforms and operates agnostically on any private or public network. FlexTalk™ can be deployed on-premise or in the Cloud.

 

  • Encrypted Push to Talk
  • GPS Locations for Enhanced Situational Awareness
  • Secure Group Messaging
  • Supported across any carrier network
  • Integrate with P25/Tetra/LMR
