High-capacity broadband networks are essential to profitable surface mining as they enable effective communication, increase efficiency and help to ensure safety.

Wireless technology enables network connectivity throughout the entirety of the mining operation, from the excavation area to the operations area, and the back office.

Wireless broadband technology provides reliable, all-weather communication for network access and all of the networked safety systems of surface mines. Maximum uptime ensures that your data network is available 24 x 365, supporting critical safety systems and network applications that enable the continuous operation of the mine.

From Chile to Botswana, Global Business Technology's wireless broadband solutions help turn surface mining networks into 21st broadband networks with anytime, anywhere access to voice, video and data.  Global Business technology delivers connectivity to wherever you are located at the mine, whether you’re on a truck in the pit, at a processing facility or in the back office.

Use Global Business technology to:

  • Deliver voice, video and data to and from trucks, offices and mobile work crews
  • Stream Doppler radar information directly to onsite offices
  • Transmit GPS location and other telemetry of vehicles to ensure smooth operation
