Connect, Communicate, Track – Maximize Operations
All fleet management systems require a communications network to connect the trucks, excavators and other equipment to the main computers and servers. The quality of the communications network can greatly affect the operation of the fleet management system. Further, the cost of the communications network can be significant and should be taken into consideration when making your decision.
One of SNCTechnologies core capabilities is communications design, network installation, and commissioning. SNCTechnologies is the leader for these type of networks in Indonesia’s mining sector. A MineComms network can be designed for SNCTechnologies own MineLink FMS and MineTrack systems. MineComms networking can be designed for other fleet management systems making it possible to expand your communication network and integrate current equipment.
MineComms communications system is currently installed at some of the largest mine sites in Indonesia supporting fleet management and other IT and Communications systems.
The MineComms wireless communications network utilizes two (2) types of frequences : 2.4 GHz Frequency and 5.8 GHz backhaul network. The 2.4 GHz 802.11b/g network provides the coverage to the FMS equipment (Trucks and Excavators etc) in all of the areas of the mining activity. The 5.8 GHz 802.11a network is the main Back Bone which connects the 2.4 GHz network to the wired Local Area Network (LAN), where the FMS servers, Mine Map and Dispatch office software are located. A basic network design for MineComms is shown above.
