Resource exploration is an uncertain and expensive process that heavily relies on collection, transfer and analysis of data – and staying in touch with experts in the field. Our managed solution delivers reliable connectivity no matter how remote the location.
Tailings dams need to be constantly monitored to ensure safe operations and to avoid environmental damage and revenue loss in the event of a failure. Inmarsat’s satellite-enabled managed service delivers a new level of visibility.
From day one of site construction, well before permanent communications are installed, BGAN can provide your teams with essential voice and broadband connectivity so they can access office applications, send reports and receive instructions, track deliveries, and video conference with colleagues back at head office.
You can depend on Inmarsat connectivity – even when other satellite systems are congested or fail. Our network operates at 99.9 per cent availability, even in severe weather, ensuring your site remains connected and productive.
BGAN Link and IsatPhone Link are relatively low-cost ways of keeping workers in touch with friends and family while they're away from home, helping to maintain morale.
You can use CCTV to monitor your mining operations in real time via BGAN. Should an incident occur – such as mechanical failure or a security threat – experts can assess the damage from the control centre rather than travelling to the site or relying on local personnel to report.
Maintain safety and security in the final days of site closure, even after the boundary fences and expensive telecoms equipment are gone. BGAN and BGAN M2M can also be used to monitor the ongoing environmental impact of your extraction activities.
