Reliable connectivity is also vital for asset management and monitoring the safety of remote workers and is an important factor to their wellbeing.
The AST Group provide a wide range of global satellite communications solutions for both the mining and resource sectors ranging from simple handheld satellite phones and radios to complex corporate internet communication solutions for mining or exploration camps.
If you’re moving about during the exploration phases, BGAN terminals are an excellent choice as they are light, portable, easy to use and provide high transfer rates, as well as voice service and SMS text messaging.
During the construction phase, communications will be at their highest with voice and data being used at an extreme rate. During this phase a fixed VSAT system is most often recommended, allowing for high bandwidth usage and full network management via INTEGRA from AST.
AST can remove the need for a costly and unreliable terrestrial network during the construction phase, instead, connecting monitoring devices, automated machinery and personnel on-line through a satellite network.
Our combined satcoms solutions also supports remote worker welfare. From satellite comms that provides connectivity to home and recreational services through to handling medical emergencies.
Our software tracking solutions can also play a vital role in either accident prevention or providing alerts in case of a medical emergency.
M2M and IOT solutions such as remote monitoring of site security, access control, asset tracking and management become of critical importance.
AST can lower operational costs by monitoring site security and surveillance in real-time. Whilst our IRIS terminal management and remote monitoring and control solution can;
IRIS is versatile and customisable and is suitable for a wide range of uses from, pressure and sensor monitoring to personnel tracking.
