Mining Asset Management

Mining asset management solutions for critical infrastructure operators

To keep critical assets in mining operating continuously, owners and operators need to be able to act decisively on the asset data in their systems.

For example, just one hour of downtime could cost thousands of dollars of lost products for a mine, on average. And in mining, where heavy duty equipment such as bulldozers, draglines and trucks are worked on in harsh environmental conditions, downtime can go on for several hours per incident that occurs, costing organizations hundreds of thousands of dollars.


The Challenge

Mines already spend up to 50 percent of their annual operating budgets on equipment maintenance and repairs. And even with having preventive maintenance strategy in place, these mines still encounter downtime and unexpected equipment failures. The cost of downtime alone emphasizes the importance of operator rounds at a mine to boost maintenance and prevent such incidents.

For many industrial organizations, this type of telecom infrastructure is an investment to support and optimize their operations, including in mining. Considering these substantial investments into their operation enhancement systems, many mining organizations simply do not have the expertise required in wireless communications systems. Therefore, it’s critical for them to invest in a tried and tested technology, backed by a company who has expertise in deploying mission critical networks. Additionally, it’s imperative to have improved security and mining asset management visibility, the ability to track them in real time, make informed decisions, reduce downtime and more.

The Redline Solution

Today’s real time asset management requires low latency, high bandwidth, on demand, zero-touch connectivity; Redline ecosystem addresses all these technological challenges in a cost-effective manner. Redline enables mining asset management by providing connectivity in the world’s most remote areas within the harshest environments where traditional connectivity means are either not available or just too expensive to set up. Our solutions make asset data more available and usable—so mining organizations can embrace digital engineering and deliver greater value to stakeholders.

Redline enables industrial organizations to securely and reliably connect assets, RTUs, sensors to collect big data and also provides the means to connect multiple assets to each other to provide the communication infrastructure to enable Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Our experience, technical staff, our support and expert engineers instill confidence in the end the decision makers to invest in us. We provide our clients with the peace of mind necessary in mission critical projects where failures are not allowed.

Redline provides connectivity to assets both machines and people using these two complementing technologies in our portfolio:
