    Connect mine sites, transport systems, pipelines, machines and people to create an agile business

    Escalating production costs, environmental concerns, skilled-labour shortages, safety, and managing dispersed operations are among today’s big challenges for mining and resource companies. In addition to this, unstable financial and commodity markets are putting extra pressure on the resource sector.

    To keep companies buoyant and profitable in this tough climate, Telstra is working to find efficiencies across the board by enabling more connected, automated and collaborative mining and resource companies. In Greenfield sites, we have a strong track record for providing rapid, reliable data communications where network coverage doesn’t exist through satellite and mobile network base stations.

    Once production is underway, we have the bandwidth to cope with large volumes of data transmitted from workers, transport systems, machine and mine operations to provide operational intelligence. And we have specialist solutions that include Smart Mine designed to help companies automate their mine sites, and monitor control equipment and vehicles remotely, as well as providing workers with pay TV, online payment facilities, movies, entertainment and high speed Internet.

    To ensure the most value from our customer engagements, we have designed a vision blueprint for connected mining and resources. The result is a resilient communications environment that connects remote sites, transport systems, railways, pipelines, machinery and people to each other and a central control centre to improve efficiency, safety and productivity.
