Reliable connectivity is critical to supporting data-driven analysis that may make the difference between success and failure in mineral exploration. It is also essential for monitoring the safety of the remote workforce to ensure health and safety regulatory compliance, and to keep morale and efficiency high by giving employees a link to the outside world.
For mining companies beginning the process, the only equipment and airtime available in-region is often not fit for purpose. But being required to work with different satellite connectivity providers in different regions brings its own problems – from lack of equipment uniformity hampering data collection to the administrative burden of managing the import/export and licensing of kit and airtime.
With Inmarsat’s Resource Exploration Solution, you can choose from our industry-leading satellite data services, Global Xpress (GX) and BGAN, to provide the mobile connectivity you need for every stage of the exploration process – from prospecting to de-risking – and every communication need.
Our IsatPhone 2 satellite phone handsets ensure you can talk anywhere on the go, while IsatData Pro offers vehicle and asset tracking options. All of these services are available to be centrally procured and managed for deployment globally as part of a managed service.
